I am using sed to mask some data in proxy logs of Apache at windows.
Putting command in httpd.conf file is :
CustomLog "|$'C:/Program Files (x86)/GnuWin32/bin/sed' -i
's/password=[^ ]*/password=masked/' 'logs/proxy-access.log'" combined
The GnuWin32 version is sed is not maintained by us, so we can't
directly help with it.
There were alos some windows-related improvements recently,
if you could test a newer version that would be very useful.
The command seems weird at a cursory look:
Using "|" means you are piping into sed (and expecting sed to output
the data to STDOUT). but using "sed -i" is "replace --in-place",
meaning it will read the "logs/proxy-access.log" and update it without
reading anything from STDIN or writing anything to STDOUT.
Is that intentional?
on starting Apache service command prompts start opening and closing and
in error.logs found exception i.e :
AH00106: piped log program ''C:/Program Files (x86)/GnuWin32/bin/sed' -i
's/password=[^ ]*/password=masked/' 'C:/Apache24/logs/proxy-access.log''
apache logging sed proxy
"failed unexpectedly" is not a sed error - another program generates it
(apache?) - so it isn't clear what is failing and how.
Can you provide more details?
