    My error.log in /root/ispconfig/httpd/logs is full of this favicon.ico errors:
    [Thu Mar  9 11:02:40 2006] [error] [client 200.104.XX.XXX] File does not exist: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/favicon.ico
    I guess 80% of the filesize is for this reason, what can I do to correct this? Can I "touch" an empty file favicon.ico and the problem will be corrected?

    That's strange. I didn't find favicon.ico anywhere in the source code of ISPConfig.
    You can try the "touch" solution.

    The problem is that nearly every browser tries to load a favicon.ico file. This is displayed on the left side of the address line in the browser. For this forum the favicon.ico is a yellow bulb/lamp. The easiest solution will be to provide a favicon.ico with the release package.

    The browser tries to find a file called favicon.ico in the server root when anyone bookmarks the page. It is good: they must want to visit again.

    The best solution is to create a favicon.ico file. Why not do it?
