Woops - you caught me Michael.
I was looking in /var/log/httpd at the access_log and error_log. I just missed putting the "httpd" in the entries a little while ago. But the previous statement still stands - I can hit that site and its not logging in those access or error log files.
This was a BlueOnyx server that I reloaded - not BlueQuartz. And I do remember seeing the cmuImport run that fix_user_UID_and_GID.pl script at the end of the cmuImport. But it must not have fixed all problems. I just ran those two scripts from the command-line and everything seems to be good now. Thank you for that help.
I just tested the logging again. While I click all over that site in a browser - nothing shows up in /var/log/httpd/access_log. Nothing at all for the entire day except that one entry I showed earlier. Same for the error_log - nothing for /home/.sites/143/site2 for today.
Do you know of anything that would stop the logging for one site? I see entries for many other sites - this is the only one I know of that isn't loggin.
