rate this thread
supplied by my hosting service) for my web site shows that one host
has made a very high number of "Requests" over the last 30 days. I
guess this means page requests. My site is an online store and in one
section, it also offers a long page of free information as a public
service. I'm curious why one host -- n1.newyorklife.com -- would make
16942 page requests in 30 days. I confess that I don't understand the
website usage report completely... The next highest number of page
requests over the same time period was 3023 requests, made by the host
wcs2-mcpherson.nipr.mil. The next highest was 1131 page requests by
another host. There were many other hosts represented over 30 days,
but the 16942 requests stands out. Can anyone venture a guess or
provide intepretations about what this means.
Also, my usage report shows pages with the most visits over the 30
days of course. I noticed an odd page name in this list. The page
name is shown in this unusual format: /widgets.html/food.html When
I click on this, it actually takes me to a page that looks like my
widgets.html page, but it has a broken image at the top. I can't find
this widgets.html/food.html file on my server. By the way, I *used*
to have a food.html page on my site, but it no longer. I haven't a
clue what this could mean. Any ideas? Thanks.
Re: Website logs: Questions
Do you think they might be harvesting/stealing information from your
site? You could check out their web site: http://newyorklife.com
/widgets.html/food.html *is* the page widgets.html Once the server has
found a file with the file path /widgets.html it is effectively ignoring
the remainder of the file path. I guess that your image is given a
relative address in your HTML and this therefore is not working because
a browser has not got the proper base address.
