What are these strange requests in my HTTP server log?

Why would requests for other websites show up in my web server's access log, and does it indicate that there's a vulnerability in my server? [more inside]

Better to serve up an tiny file or a 404?

Q for the webserver admin folks out there. I have a few web pages which are dead (old, retired, moved, etc). As a courtesy to some folks who were still linking to them (some dynamically generated javascript) I just left the files in place, but made them into tiny text files, preventing 404s and hanging pages. The question: which is better for the server (cheaper, less intensive) in this case? Serve up a tiny (or blank) text file - or - just delete the files and return 404s to all requests? [more inside]

Why does Apache stop serving one file after I request another?

I have run into an unpleasant Apache concurrency problem, whereby the ongoing download of a large file spontaneously and silently hangs ~90 seconds after another request to the server is made. Error logging set at the highest level reveals nothing. Any idea what may be causing this? (Apache/2.0.52, Win2K Professional) [more inside]

Easier way to stream MP3 files?

I'm trying to setup Firefox to stream MP3 files from my webserver rather than download them first. I know about creating an .m3u file with a link to the mp3 to do this but does anyone know an easier way, I'm not going to create .m3u files for 90,000 songs.

How big of a deal is it to have a server in colocation in a far away location?

I have a webserver colocated in Los Angeles, where I live. I am moving to New York in a few months and I'm wondering if I should take the server with me. I have a ridiculously great deal at my current facility. How big of a deal is it to have a server in colocation in a far away location? (The server has RAID 1 and hot-swap drives, if that helps.)

Recommend a Windows-based web server for my intranet

What is an easy-to-install fairly secure Windows-based Webserver that I can use to show some static pages (so, no scripting needed) in an intranet. Non-IIS.
