I have Craft 2.6.2986 in an AWS EC2 environment. My site looks fine, but in my craft.log, I see a lot of 404 errors. We don't have phpmyadmin2011 or phpmyadmin2012 page. Does anyone know how they get generated? Thanks.

These are very likely bots that are scanning the website for various things (I see it for WordPress logins a ton). Two things you can do:

  1. Redirect them. This is what I do for WordPress bots
  2. Install the Retour plugin to get a better overview of what 404 errors happen on your site.
