This is interesting and got my curiosity aroused so I was looking at my access_log. There's loads of hits from 1 ip address, but it looks as thought they're just looking at some pics I put up on the wiki. Same for a few other ip's. Makes sense as I e-mailed a few relatives telling them to 'have a look at these photos'. But there are a few curious lines, like this:
126.96.36.199 - -"GET / HTTP/1.0" 301 - "-" msnbot/1.0 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm
188.8.131.52 - - "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 404 298 "-" "msnbot/1,0 (+http://search.msn..com/msnbot.htm"
I'm not familiar with what these logs should look like. Normal stuff or hand grenade time?
Interesting. In a terminal, the command tail -f /etc/httpd/logs/access_log gives me a real time look at the hits on the wiki. I'm using a second tab in Firefox on another computer and accessing the wiki, so I know that the ip address is my public ip. As I move around the wiki the log updates. Neat.
