Application error log
Since alt-mod-passenger version 5.3.7-3 we have included support for the PassengerAppLogFile directive.
Syntax: PassengerAppLogFile path
Default: PassengerAppLogFile path-to-passenger-log-file

By default, Passenger log messages are all written to the Passenger log file. With this option, you can have the app specific messages logged to a different file in addition. In alt-mod-passenger, you can use it in the context of a virtual host or in the htaccess file.
