I was just checking my Apache errors logs to troubleshoot a different issue and found this. When I perform a WHOIS lookup, the IP belongs to Amazon. Is there a reason why Amazon is trying to access a directory on my server that does not exist?

[error] [client 54.251.117.51] File does not exist: /var/www/cgi-bin

Nice thread, just finished reading it. Does this mean I need to block all of Amazon's IPs? Sorry if the question sounds silly, I'm an Apache noob.
