Support » Everything else WordPress » Why are people coming to my site looking for ​/i2.wp.com

  • I notice in the Redirection logs there are many requests for ​/i2.wp.com (s0.wp.com is also common). Often the requests come from an ip address that is doing a lot of poking around looking for .php files as well.

    To me these requests look suspicious. Are they or am I paranoid?

    Are you using Jetpack’s Photon module or its stats module? Both use the WordPress CDN ( xx.wp.com )

    Yes, I am. Redirection sees these requests, or some of them, as 404 errors. Is that something I should worry about?

    Whtat do you mean by “redirection sees these requests”? I get many, many folks poking into my sites for various PHP files. If they annoy me enough, I block them. 🙂

    If I look at the Redirection 404 logs there are plenty of attempts at reaching .php files (many of them for plug-ins that I don’t use).

    These CDN addresses appear in the Redirection 404 log in this form: ​/i1.wp.com

    There are lots of them.

    You’d have to ask the devs for that plugin about it.

    Photon works like a caching proxy. Basically, when you make a request to the Photon servers for an image it doesn’t have, then it attempts to get that image from your server to cache it. If the image doesn’t exist, then it doesn’t get anything and doesn’t cache it.

    So all that’s going on here are calls to the Photon CDN?
