Re: [off topic] Configuring an IP blind Apache server

The idea is a system wide solution that allows any user group to
install any semi-random PHP/MySQL frob without having to hack around
trying to find and disable its IP logging.

Then do as Dan just suggested and forward it using your firewall .. advantage there is you can still "ban" a user if you see the need by inserting the appropriate DENY rule above your forward one.

Note that other "things" in your network may still log the traffic though .. (most hardware firewalls, for example) .. so be sure you know what the end-to-end security is at least as far as your perimeter router.(*)


(*): well .. unless you use AT&T as an ISP, since we know they forward everything to the ($3_letter_agency) anyway.
