How do I turn off all web logging of my site?

Some members may want to protect the privacy of the people who view or contribute to their site by turning off web logging.

Once #4793 is completed, you will be able to turn off web logging by click on the Web Configuration tab of your site and edit the Logging lines:

CustomLog /dev/null combined
ErrorLog /dev/null

Please note - just removing the Log lines will not disable logging, it will simply cause your logging to happen in the server-wide logs. You must configure your site to explicitly log to /dev/null.

If you are using web application like Drupal or WordPress be sure to turn off logging in these applications as well.

Also, be sure not to use Google Analytics, Mollom, or any third party software that communicates with another web site.
