    Hi All,
    I see following error in Apache Error log. I'm on centOS
    File does not exist: /usr/local/apache/htdocs/events.php
    File does not exist: /usr/local/apache/htdocs/tr_status.php

    There are few other such errors as well.

    Does anyone knoe what are these and any fix to stop them showing up in log file?

    Hello :)

    There is likely a website with a PHP script on your server utilizing those file locations. Thus, since those files do not exist, Apache correctly reports it in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log. I suggest searching for files that utilize those paths and correcting them.

    Thank you.

    I Did some more digging and found that these requests are coming from Google crawler (IP: 66.249.73.111)

    I did a search on /home directory and found an application Zabbix containing access to the file requests.
    This Zabbix had cpanelexim owner/group (not sure what was exact owner and group names as I deleted zabbix folder).
    I deleted the entire zabbix folder and now these error reports are gone.

    Does cPanel uses zabbix somewhere?

    I can't recall me or my sys admin installing it.

    cPanel does not utilize or install that application. It appears to be a network monitoring solution, so you may want to consult with your system administrator or hosting provider to see if it was installed for specific purpose.

    Thank you.
