server config, <VirtualHost>, <Global>
1.2.2rc2 and later
By default, the server will the path of any configured SystemLog, any configured TransferLogs, and any configured ExtendedLogs to see if they are symbolic links. If the paths are symbolic links, the server will refuse to log to that link unless explicitly configured to do so via this directive.
Security note: this behaviour should not be allowed unless for a very good reason. By allowing the server to open symbolic links with its root privileges, you are allowing a potential symlink attack where the server could be tricked into overwriting arbitrary system files. You have been warned.
