	No, it's incorrect.

	Syslog filters based on facility and priority.  "httpd" is not
	a known facility.  "man 5 syslog.conf" will list the available
	facilities.  I see no quick reference to what facility php
	is using, but if I had to hazard a guess I'd say it was
	"daemon"; the priority remains in question, though.

	Due to potential for DOS I'd not use syslog for this, however;
	I would use error_log pointing to an accessible path, making
	whatever selinux changes may be required.


You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns
out that God hates all the same people you do.
