/etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf

or if you only have normal syslog it's /etc/syslog.conf

for syslog

Code:
.
.
.
local1.*                      @192.168.1.66

.
.
.
note that when it was

local0,local1.* -/var/log/localmessages

it was working

each time i restart apache i see some worning
tail -f /var/log/localmessages

2) concerning mod_log_config.conf

at the end i added

Code:
ErrorLog syslog:local1

remember my syslog server deals with external log like this

Code:
.
.
.

 udp(port(514));
.
.
.

destination std {
        file ("/var/log/HOSTS/$YEAR-$MONTH/$HOST/$FACILITY-$YEAR-$MONTH-$DAY"
                owner(root) group(root) perm(0600) dir_perm(0700) create_dirs(yes)
        );
};
log {
        source(src);
        destination(std);
};

i don't if it is working i should see somthing here

tail -f /var/log/HOSTS/date/name_of_the_host/facility/


if i am looking in the wrong place please tell me
