2018-01-01 Making my own web stuff more robust
In building the new homeserver there is also time to test things and improve robustness a bit (although I should not overdo it).

The one thing that forces me to look at some web-code again is that the new servers run PHP version 7. Some of my code is giving warnings, time to fix that. But I haven't written any serious PHP in ages, I just rewrote sites in mod_perl. So my PHP is rusty and needs work, especially with PHP 7.

It's a good thing I use version management, which allows me to test the fixes on the development version(s) of the site and push them to the production version when I'm happy with the results.

Some of the things I notice that could improve go on the todo list. One thing I did notice and fixed right away was that the CVS metadata inside the web directories could be requested too. Although I find no serious security information in there it is still an unwanted information leak.
