    There seems to be a slight error in your custom log statement, as given
    issuing a restart to httpd will error with: 
    "CustomLog takes two or three arguments, a file name, a custom log
    format string or format name, and an optional "env=" clause (see docs)"
    To correct this change 
    CustomLog "| /usr/bin/logger -t 'apache_access_log' combined"
    to be 
    CustomLog "| /usr/bin/logger -t 'apache_access_log'" combined
