So i've deployed a site to an un-managed VPS and am just going through the process of getting everything runnig. Have SS up and running so far without a hitch, everyhting feel fast etc. Have just finished doing some security stuff to the server and am now onto setting up AWStats. I have AWSTats up and running as far as I can tell, the problem is that I need it to respond to domain.tld/ask_statz (made weird to try and through the script kiddies). How do I make SS ignore that one url? I'm assuming it's to do with intercepting the request @ htaccess before it gets sent through the sapphire maze.
If anyone could help that would be really awesome.
The ask_statz isn't a folder. AWStats is a server statistics package written in perl and installed outside the /srv/www directory. at the moment i've got .htaccess in /etc/awstats which supposedly works for others (i'm using it to password protect the stats)
but SS is still getting the request as far as i can tell. I'm assuming that .htaccess gets processed before the main.php bootstrapper? If i just add some sort of rule that makes htaccess not send /ask_statz/ to the bootstraper will that work?
