Are the logs safe?
« on: December 02, 2008, 01:12:33 AM »
I saw some one tell that the logs are hacked and loads of junk gets in to them since they logs are at a 777 directory is that possible? That they start writing stuff in your logs?

Hello,

the logs that sitemap generator stores are used for tracking the history of sitemaps generation only and are located in data/ folder. You can create ".htaccess" file in data/ folder with this line to disalow accessing the folder via http:
Code: [Select]
deny from all

Sitemap generator will still work correctly, the only thing is that text and html sitemap cannot be opened directly in browser (since they are created in data/ folder by default).
