webalizer help
does anyone use it? its all geek to me

 11:49 pm on Sep 16, 2001 (gmt 0)

seems to be getting harder and harder to get a free tracker so i've been looking into [webalizer.com...]

i just dont understand, do i need to be able to run scripts?

if not then i can go ahead and use it but then i am faced with the dilema of which version i should use, i think my webspace is a ****/3.3 running on a unix platform

i wrote to my host but still havn't had a reply i will appreciate any help very much

its supposed to say z-e-u-s but for some reason is filtered without the dashes

We use Webalizer, and its OK.

I think this would need to be installed by your host, AFAIK, it can't be run as a script from your browser.

You might try AWStats, which is slightly better than Webalizer in some ways.

Alternatively, try Advlogger, which runs from your cgi-bin, using SSI or javascript inserted on the relevant pages.

4eyes, I'm looking at hosting that includes Webalizer. Do the stats include search keywords and keyphrases?

sorry Ade - there is another program named z-e-u-s. A few in their affiliate program have been promoting in the forums for so long that I just added it to the filter instead of trying to decide what's a url drop and what's not.

I'm not up on webalizer.

They do 'of a fashion'.

If you are able to mess around with the config files you can get a reasonable amount of info. It can pull keywords and also Search Engine Referrals - but not keywords by search engine. AWStats seems to do that better.

Most hosts with Webalizer seem to just do the 'out of the box' installation.

I will stickymail you with URL example of one of our tweaked reports.
