"...3 space-separated components (hint: it doesn't)"
I used this: <LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common>, as in the example by kcott.
From the docs:
"First, the method used by the client is GET. Second, the client requested the resource /apache_pb.gif, and third, the client used the protocol HTTP/1.0."
Hence the request field will always look like this: "GET /karls.beer HTTP/1.0".
Best regards, Karl
