Subject: fail2ban vs. data directory security check
Hi,

After updating my server to ubuntu 16.04 (and very soon to 18.04), and so to php 7.0 , the dokuwiki from 2014 , does not work properly , a lot of warnings in the error log of apache, so I tried to upgrade dokuwiki from this old release, I take each stable and upgrade it

dokuwiki-2015-08-10
dokuwiki-2016-06-26
dokuwiki-2017-02-19
dokuwiki-2018-04-22b

The first issue was to add these parameters in conf/local.php
$conf['superuser']   = '@admin';
$conf['useacl'] =true;

Now I still have a problem , in my alert log I have

AH01797: client denied by server configuration: /xxx/data/dont-panic-if-you-see-this-in-your-logs-it-means-your-directory-permissions-are-correct.png,

The problem is that I use fail2ban and this error triggers him and blocks the visitor. So I'd like to remove that message from apache alert log, but how to do this ?


Thank you in advance

Dany

You rather should configure fail2ban correctly
