Subject [users@httpd] Logging Nimda
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2003 08:33:09 GMT
I'm using named virtual hosts to host several sites on the same machine.
The logs in the first web site in the list are full of Nimda-type


presumably because when Nimda-infected boxes or software designed to
detect vulnerabilities accesses the server via IP on port 80, Apache
uses the first site to respond to the request.

I'd like to avoid these requests from appearing in the logs for the
first site, but (and I can't think of a good reason why at the moment)
still log this activity.

Is it, perhaps, possible to ensure that requests made on port 80 are
logged somewhere other than the first site? Or, if can anyone convince
me that it's not worth logging, is there a way of preventing Apache from
responding to a certain requests, like those listed above?

Thanks for any ideas!
