Description of problem:
The httpd *error_log files don't use the same date format as the *access_log files, so it doesn't find anything. Removing "*ApplyhttpDate" from conf/logfiles/http-error.conf fixes it.
Actually, we probably want a custom date filter for this format:
[Sun Nov 25 03:44:01 2012]
Although it at least find items from the right date.
Indeed, removing "*ApplyhttpDate" from conf/logfiles/http-error.conf fixes this misbehavior.
I just ran into some serious problems while testing this. The 'fix' works only with httpd 2.2. In 2.4, http-error doesn't work at all due to a different log format. The second problem is that the output log format can be heavily configured (mod_log_config), which kind of negates the whole purpose of the http-error script.
It would probably make sense to fix this / support the default log and disregard anything else. If you want this to be really configurable, an RFE for a configurable regexp will be a way to go.
