Method 1: If you don’t need the user.ini/.user.ini file, can simply remove the file.

Method 2: Use the rewrite rule to block any file with extension .ini and .log,

RewriteRule ^.*\.(log|ini)$ - [F,L]

Reload the webserver,

systemctl restart lsws

Best, Eric

It worked! Now I don’t have that notification anymore. Thanks.
