We are dealing with a site that is hosted with Demon. The log files generated are not readable by our analyzer software (Webtrends Log Analyzer 7).
I have always had "Auto-detect log file type" selected with no problem for logs from 10s of other servers.
This log file has all the required fields but in the wrong order.
Here is an example line (domain and ip details changed):
www.domain.co.uk 184.108.40.206 - - [25/Nov/2007:07:46:25 +0000] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 8730 "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/18.104.22.168" "http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=QUERY&btnG=Search&meta=" "-"
The first thing that jumps out is the domain name is at the start of every line which I have never seen.
The referrer and the browser also seem to be the wrong way around.
Webtrends has around 30 specific log file formats I could select but no idea which one. Is this format familiar to anyone?
Demon say it is a "Demon Internet" format, they can change the format to a standard one, but this will not help for previous months.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
