Depending how apache was ./configured, you may need to set the log to /dev/null to completely disable error logging.

ErrorLog /dev/null

You need to edit your apache configuration file. It should be in one of the following locations.

/etc/apache2/apache2.conf

or

/etc/httpd/httpd.conf

Edit this file and look for a line similar to the below;

ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log

Comment out this line by placing a '#' at the beginning like so.

#ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log

Restart your apache daemon

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Note paths may differ depending on your distribution but should give you something to work off!

Agreed! I guess he has lots of errors that he wants to tuck away under the carpet :)
