    Just looked at stats for my site (via my web host). One page shows “failed referrer report” listing page mydomain.com/source.php . However, I’m not sure what this page is when logged into my site and why it’s showing this error.

    Is this non-relevant to viewers or internal page only?

    source.php displays the details of a source. But the page name (source.php) on its own will fail as it requires the IS of a specific source and a ged file name. A typical URL would be:

    https://our-families.info/source.php?sid=S637&ged=Osborne.ged

    So no surprise that a URL to just source.php would fail. COuld be a user error, a crude and pointless hack attempt, or something else. But nothing to be concerned about.
