How to Configure Monolog to Exclude 404 Errors from the Log

2.3

This feature was introduced to the MonologBundle in version 2.4. This version is compatible with Symfony 2.3, but only MonologBundle 2.3 is installed by default. To use this feature, upgrade your bundle manually.

Sometimes your logs become flooded with unwanted 404 HTTP errors, for example, when an attacker scans your app for some well-known application paths (e.g. `/phpmyadmin`). When using a fingers_crossed handler, you can exclude logging these 404 errors based on a regular expression in the MonologBundle configuration:

  • YAML
  • XML
  • PHP

            excluded_404s:
                - ^/phpmyadmin
