A few months ago I noticed that one of my clients websites seemed to be getting spikes of traffic. However with spikes in traffic most clients would report an increase in sales or business. When looking at the stats server, the requests were for pages and files that were not even on the server, and were for technologies ( PHP ) that I do not run on m box. If you see requests for files like /prx2.php, /phpmyadmin/config/config.inc.php, /roundcubemail/readme, or /webmail/readme. You might want to read this article.

I am not a huge fan of precompiling my code into DLL files, Simply because it makes it harder for other to diagnose problems, and trouble shoot your application. Repairs should be possible with notepad if you are desperate. I had a client that called with this exact situation. Their Old Developer was a hard core Visual Studio Man, and all the code was in DLL files. I found a little tool that allows you to open the DLLs and see the source code. Opening DLL files may not be legal in some situations, but in my case it was to help my client get their application back up and running. I was rather impressed with this tool.
