Prevent Nginx from logging random IPs

Posted May 31, 2020 551 views

I installed Nginx on Ubuntu and I only have 2 html files.
When I check Nginx logs there are tons of random IP addresses sending GET and POST requests. I get IPs with no information just “batman” and random websites. How do I filter Nginx logs to only show me requests that access the html files I host on Nginx?

    Sounds like this has a previously used (and popular) up address

    Chance your nginx site conf to just listen to your domain and turn login off for the default server.

This access log replaces the general access log defined elsewhere in the configuration.
