Prevent favicon error being recorded in the log file

Added by dcaccount about 2 months ago

Hello,
I have a simple Home website with no favicons.

Every time I browse it, a few errors are logged, for instance: “GET /apple-touch-icon-precomposed.png HTTP/1.1" 404” and other similar.

Being the server protected by fail2ban, my IP address gets banned because of these “favicon” errors.

How can I configure lighttpd in order to prevent these favicon 404 errors, being recorded in the log?

Thanks for helping,
Daniele

I have not tried anything.

Hint: try something. Make an effort. What pages of the documentation did you read on the lighttpd wiki? What ideas do you have? What did you try?

If I am asking something, is because I need help and I am kindly asking for it as I am not able to do something.
I have no time to waste to answer tons of useless questions. If you know how to and want to help me, I would be grateful otherwise just do not reply. Thanks

As noted at:
How to get support

lighttpd volunteers are volunteers. Please make an effort to read the lighttpd wiki documentation and to play an active role in helping yourself, and helping our volunteers to help you. Thank you.

As you have declared yourself helpless, you are likely to remain so: i.e. without help.
