Not flagging this with an “R” tag since I don’t want to spam R-bloggers but I mentioned here that I’d be disabling logging on https://cinc.rud.is and https://git.rud.is and I wanted to follow up on that with an addendum that I’ve opted to disable user/system tracking in the access logs of both those sites vs just drop access logs entirely.
I’ve configured nginx with ipscrub and have defined a new
log_format special '$remote_addr_ipscrub - [$time_local] "$request" $status $body_bytes_sent';
that anonymizes the incoming IP address and does not log referrer (it only logs what you see above).
That way I can get usage info without tracking you b/c I rly have no need for the extra info.
It was super-easy to install and I can recommend it for anyone who runs nginx and wants to avoid capturing information you really don’t need to measure engagement.
