It took me awhile to get it running on Etch.

You need to have log_sql and log_sql_mysql loaded. I created a user to
access my db with create rights so the tables would be created. This
seems to work better then creating the tables yourself. At least the
fields will be correct you can turn off LogSQLCreateTables later. You
also need to make sure you have mod_log_sql-preserve in a writable
directory. Check there for errors.

Your http.conf is blank be default. I added:

LogSQLLoginInfo mysql://loguser:username@localhost/apachelogs
LogSQLDBParam socketfile /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
LogSQLCreateTables On
LogSQLMassVirtualHosting Off
LogSQLMachineID web

In vhost setup I used:

	LogSQLTransferLogTable access_vhost_name_com
	LogSQLScoreDomain vhost_name.com

Good luck :)
