    Code:
    2008-04-01 13:59:05.423	INFO	[24.x.x.x:32853-0#APVH_www.mydomain.com] Authentication failed with user: 'admin'.
    I see many of these lines on error_log, that IP address is mine. I never had any login failures with the admin username. Why does it show that? :confused:

    I have no clue, any part of your site require login as "admin"? Maybe it due to password change and the browser still send the old password it remembers?

    Only the Web Console requires username, admin. I never changed the password since I installed lsws.

    Web console use cookie for login, not HTTP authentication, and it won't log that to error log either.

    Sorry, I just realized that there is one url that is protected by htaccess with the username, admin. But then, I was able to login with the saved password in FireFox, password remained the same since that account was created. The error_log file shows at least 20 lines as pasted on the first message of this thread.

    Maybe your browser does send the password by default, only when get a 401 error it will send it. Don't worry about it.
