3.4 Deprecated Directives for Apache HTTP Server

The WebLogic Server plug-in logs are now part of the Apache HTTP Server error log and are prefixed with weblogic: to easily identify them. Hence the directives WLLogFile and Debug are deprecated. If the configuration still uses any of these directives, the following note will appear during startup::
The WLLogFile directive is ignored. The web server log file is used instead. The Debug directive is ignored.
The web server log level is used instead.
To enable plug-in logs, set LogLevel to debug. The logs will be included in the file pointed to by ErrorLog.

If we set Log Level to "info" but logs are written in debug mode.
