As a webmaster, it is a good practice to monitor your webserver error logs to tweak or fine tune your server for better performance. The fact that you are reading this article shows that you are one of those responsible webmasters. :)
There are some errors that are not so obvious when you look at them. Such as this "File does not exist: labels.rdf" error.
Solution: To resolve this just follow these steps.
- First goto the root folder of your website.
- Create a file named labels.rdf (In linux run this command 'touch labels.rdf'
That's it. You will not see these errors again in your logs.
Reason: If you are wondering what this labels.rdf file does and why someone is accessing it, then readon.
The Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to protect children from potentially harmful material. This file type is usually a file called LABELS.RDF and is in the root directory of a domain being referenced for ICRA rating. This association is classified as XML.
But obviously, the ICRA labeling engine has been discontinued. But there are some rating engines that are accessing your site and trying to look for this labels.rdf file. So you could just create this empty file to prevent future errors and ignore it.
