I am trying to track and keep reports of a few sites, but they are all sub-domains of my main site. The program that I currently use won't let me run the full report for the sub-domain, as it won't recognize the sub-domain as a seperate site.
I am assuming that it must be possible to do this, so I guess my question is what program I should be using, or what do I have to do to accomplish this?
You'll have to do that at the server config level. All the logging software will "take what's in the log" and deal with it. There are very few that can sort out domains from a log file unless specifically configured to do so.
Best bet, is to get the admin to setup separate log files for each subdomain.
That's what we've done Brett and then we zip and archive it each day.
I'm wondering agerhart, what analyzer you are using. I recently evaluated several software options and found discussing this problem with their technical support was beneficial. This form of tracking is becoming more popular but at present many servers are not used to the idea yet. We must encourage them along and help them come up with their own solutions. A good technical support person who understands logs and analyzers, the scripts and possibilities is a great person to have in your corner.
I think I phrased it wrong. Brett you are right about having to talk to the admin to set it up, but currently for one reason or another they don't want to do it. So my question should have been if there was any other way to do it, but it looks like the answer is no.
Paynt, In regards to your question about which analyzer I am using, it is Web Trends. Is there a different one that anyone would recommend? I find that it gives pretty good reports, although I am sure that there are better ones out there.
