I have got errors on my own server about the following wiki page:

Since i am not owner of that wiki site, the only thing i could do is delete the entries, but they just come back every 5 minuts.
On my server (which has nothing to do with this wiki site I get the following error:
[Thu Apr 14 03:50:14 2011] [error] [client] e, referer:

I do get hundreds of this a day and i don't know what is going on and/ or how to avoid it.

Version: unspecified
Severity: critical

Hi Happy-melon,
the issue here is that this wiki @
is not mine, and for some reason I don't understand wny my server, which has nothing to do with this wiki is reporting errors every hour, like:

[Thu Apr 14 07:01:50 2011] [error] [client] /usr/bin/diff3: No newline at end of file, referer:
[Thu Apr 14 07:01:50 2011] [error] [client] /usr/bin/diff3: No newline at end of file, referer:

I don't know what to do, do i have a hacker on my server?!?1 wrote:

I assume your page in question is ?? Users are clicking on the link on the page and being directed to your server. There is an error on your server which is causing the "no newline at end of file" error. The referer is unrelated. You just need to find the file that the diff function is complaining about, and add a newline to the end of it. But this has nothing to do with MediaWiki.
