ACEweb errors: Nobody loves to see these, especially your students!
Make sure that you do NOT have Expanded Error Display set on your ACEweb Administration page, by clicking the following Normal Error Display link on your ACEweb Administration page.
The expanded error display should only be used at the recommendation of your technician, typically during installation, as it will cause WCAG and Vulnerability scans to flag it as unsecure, as well as be frighteningly scary to your students and staff.
The Normal error display has a much more sanitized view, prompting students to contact your office. Don’t forget you can always have the FULL error emailed to you if you have the AdminSendErrorEmail INI set to ON and the AdminEmail INI has a value (your email, or whomever in your organization you want to receive error emails).
If you notice a surge in ACEweb error emails, it is possible that they are being caused by your ACEweb site being crawled by a search engine bot or other harmless scanning software. When these bots peruse your website, they can trigger the ACEweb error handler when checking up on non-existent paths or by appending invalid URL parameters. Legitimate bots will always have a browser agent identified, so that you can easily determine if they are a bot. Check for the Browser line near the top of the error email, and if it contains anything pertaining to bots, or search engines like Bing, Google, etc., then they can be safely ignored.
As always, contact your technician if you need any help with settings. Also, be sure to pass on those error emails to your tech if you do have a question as to the legitimacy of it.
