Help understand error
« on: April 14, 2018, 04:24:24 AM »
Have attached the screenshot. Can anyone explain what is happening.
Did someone click the link in the copyright ? Or something more serious.

Looks like the standard scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines Files".

I wouldn't worry about it. Disable the scheduled task if you DO worry about it ;)

So, was this a Guest trying to do this or just my site reaching out to SMF trying to check for updates ?

It was a task triggered by a guest view of the site.

Ok. Not too clear, but there’s no point in further questions. Marking solved.
Thank you.

Thing is, the issued SMF software doesn't have a timer system nor is it event based. This means that for stuff to just "happen" it relies on members/guests/bots clicking links on your forum that invoke your index.php file.

SMF makes good use of this by incorporating (into index.php) a check on whether there are any outstanding actions to perform, like sending mail or invoking any scheduled tasks.

Since any and all interactions with index.php go through this activity, it follow that any member or guest can trigger the activity. In your case the activity (scheduled task) was invoked by a guest and failed for some reason, but it's nothing to be worried about. The task execution will be attempted again and will most likely succeed.

Thanks for the explanation Shambles. I’m not worried, just needed to understand the mechanism / pathway to that action.
