Not sure this is exactly Apache related but let me explain.
I setup a 404.php page with a little code that sends me an email stating the link the user tried to access, their resolved IP and the referred link.
This weekend I got 6,000
Sat Mar 29 2008 5:57:43 pm GMT
126.96.36.199 [162.Red-83-40-214.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net.] tried to load www.true2life.co.uk/portfolio/roomconfi ... php?PHPSES
User Agent = Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET)
The other 5,999 are similiar but have valid but different pages at the end of the URL and either more or less /portfolio/ duplicated folders in the middle of the url.
They are direct links as far as I can tell.
The problem isn't the fact I get lots of these emails but more to the "why". and could this possibly be a server configuration issue somewhere?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
