    I does not work on my installation. I can see that I have lines without client in it, but it does not find anything at all.

    Have you tried this @^((?!contact).)*$@ for example on ? Does it remove all contact pages for example with your browser ?

    Do you use last version 1.7.14 ?

    Can you send more details about your logs, your server OS, etc... You can make this conversation private on right if you send confidential informations...

    Hello Mathias,

    I don't know why the regex search does not work in your browser.

    When seeing your screenshot, I presume you want to always remove these logs from the display, correct ? If this is the case, you should modify the configuration file and add something like this :

    "exclude": {"Log" : ["client denied by server configuration"] }
