If you have a UNIQUE or PRIMARY KEY on log, you can do this:
1) CREATE a temporary table with all columns like log.
2) INSERT INTO
temp_log (column1, column2, ...., url)
log.colum1, log.column2, ..., ip.newip
3) REPLACE INTO
4) DROP temp_log
You can hold temp_log for the next round and just delete the contents, if needed.
