Take a look at your Apache conf files. 'admin' is a directory name common on
worm-susceptible IIS hosts, and is often redirected to Gone on Apache hosts
so that they don't make a mess in the error logs. I suspect you just need to
adjust the match patterns so that it only picks up admin at the root, not
anywhere in the path.
