And the bots show up

I set up a staging server for a web app I'm working on yesterday. This morning I find this in my rails log.

ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches "/scripts/setup.php"):
ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches "/sql/scripts/setup.php"):
ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches "/web/scripts/setup.php"):
ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches "/scripts/setup.php"):
ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches "/admin/scripts/setup.php"):
ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches "/PMA/scripts/setup.php"):
ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches "/phpmyadmin/scripts/setup.php"):

Thus the shotgun bot scanning has commenced. It's funny how organic and viral (viral in the bad sense) the web is given it's all just computer programs.
