Logs

Your log files are the best way to detect any trouble brewing. In your administrative duties, you will want to make it a part of your daily regimen. The key things to remember are:

  • What is the status code?

  • What is the user agent string?

  • What did the visitor do or attempt to do?

  • What errors did the system report?

If you see multiple attempts at something that is “just not right”, then block them.

See the .htaccess section for more.

Apache Status Codes
