I have recently upgraded my Apache version (now, I use Apache version 2.4.10).
After this upgrade, on the PimpMyLog screen, I have less informations:
    * IP & Refer colums are empty;
    * Date column contain an error "Unable to convert this string to date : ";

Could you help me to fix this issues?

    Hi !

    Log format is not the same between Apache 2.2 and 2.4. You can :

    1. backup your config.user.json configuration file or your config.user.php configuration file or your config.user.d configuration directory
    2. remove it
    3. relaunch Pimp My Log to reconfigure it from scratch
    4. Then merge the new configuration file which supports Apache 2.4 now with the old one by removing the Apache 2.2 configuration tree

    Or you can take a look at the cfg directory to see how apache 2.4 works and modify your configuration file.
