3591Re: [webalizer] Visits/day measurement tool
- Jan 21, 2007Karen,
I am very suprised to hear that the hosting companies you have mentioned
provide tools such as webalizer... Yet again, why not...
Most of us in the field analyze our own web server log files with
software such as awstats, webalizer, or self-crafted statistics software
which we write to fit our own web applications.
No web statistics application, which is available to the masses, can
track the usage of your proprietary shopping cart, take that just as an
Google also offers some really neat stats tracking software, check them
out as well.
The question you have asked is extremely vague, and does not provide us
with any insight to where to start looking at your problem. I doubt your
hosting company would provide your web server logs for you, so there is
little way to verify the information given.
Write back if you have questions.
