First time posting so I'm sory if I'm in the wrong place.

I have apache and I went and had a look at my access.log and noticed the same IP tried to get into phpmyadmin with over 100 attempts with different paths. I have phpmyadmin to on my work on localhost

My question are:
Is this normal
Why is it happening
What is a way I can stop it


apache 2.4.39 64bit

1) sadly true. There are a lot of ppl scanning the internet for a way to access databases.

2) See number 1

3) You can block the IP in the apache config

Code:

Require not 5.9.23.231


yet it would be better to block that IP on your firewall in the router.
