Subject Strange access log entry repeating
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2007 18:00:51 GMT

I already posted this into apache-users, but it probably is too much 
httpd-internal, I haven't received an answer yet.

I have an ssl host for the domain, configured with these lines 
in httpd.conf:




         SSLEngine On
         SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/certs/
         SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/certs/

Everything worked fine before I enabled ssl. After that, these lines 
occure every now and then, but always about once per second: - - [11/Oct/2007:19:11:25 +0200] "GET /" 400 478 "-" "-"

It definetely started in the moment I stopped and restarted apache after 
I made the URL configuration. It is a multi homed environment and these 
entries appear for no other host (there is no other ssl host on this 
server). Any ideas?

I have checked everything, there is nothing externally calling this URL. 
It seems that apache is calling the URL on its own (maybe it is trying 
to resolv something?). I'm not that much into the apache details to have 
a clue.

I'm using httpd-2.2.4. If you don't have an idea, I can maybe track it 
down a bit further. But so far this simpelst thing I can explain is: 
With a pretty standard httpd.conf there is no long entry unless someone 
actually calls a URL. But once I include the configuration lines above 
and restart apache, strange log lines appear. Note: There is always an 
error 400. And the URL called is always "GET /", not even "GET / 
HTTP/1.0" or so.

Kind regards
