Web Server Logs
- Hi Tabbers!
eGroups kept having problems sending to my e-mail address, so now, I
am using the web-only for reading, and just to see what it is like,
using the web to post.
Anyway, the non-profit that I webmaster for is switching to a new web
host soon that is less expensive, but offers lots more features. One
of the features is access to the web access log. I have not worked
with these files yet, but have started some research. I have found
lots of Perl scripts that must be run on the web server as a CGI
script to get useful information out of the log files.
I was wondering if anyone is using NoteTab to gather information from
web logs, and using Perl, Gawk, or just a clip(s). I am sure I could
write something to glean from the logs, but why re-invent the wheel?
Or if anyone knows of a good freeware program or script that does not
have to run on the web server (So far, I have not found one on the
web). (I think we can run stuff on in the CGI bin, but want to go one
step at a time).
Right now, we must rely on a "free" counter that only reports total
visits to the home page, browser, OS, country, etc. I am looking
forward to improving the site with access to what page(s) get the
most hits, and how to re-arrange the site so what should get the most
