    Hi all,

    this looks like a google bot search for a non existant file.

    66.249.76.194 - - [18/Dec/2012:11:04:39 +0000] "GET /en/forum/design-issues/84630-include-surveyid-and-qcodes HTTP/1.0" 404 1223 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)"



    I was looking for 404 nasties like the ones I found below. A and B.

    What are we looking at? Are these snippets of firewall logs?

    well a domain name would help.

    www.limesurvey.org - is this your website? if not then are you linking to it or using a script sourced from this website?

    you happen to be using a survey script?

    is the above your web servers traffic logs?

    anyway it seems you have code in your HTML files linking to CSS/script and a few HTML files which are not on your web server, this most likely occurred because you used a template and never utilized all the pages within that template.

    as long as your website is displaying/functioning correctly then you can remove the references to the non-existent files from your HTML code.

    Hello, and thanks for your reply, my own domain is www.vk3ukf.com.

    www.limesurvey.org has nothing to do with me, and there is no script linking to it, most of the site is static HTML, apart from a test, elsewhere, on that domain for a php forum. I have never heard of that site and I have no links to it.

    What looks like has happened (to me at the moment), is that google is searching for something that has never been on my server.o_O

    Hi again,

    I downloaded the entire website to a local HDD and did a search on it using Hdsearchandstats software that will search all ascii/txt files for a string.

    I searched for,
    "84630-include-surveyid-and-qcodes"

    Nothing found in any website files, it did point at my access_log file though, because that is the only mention of it, which is why I am scratching my head.
