Log files with Javascript.

I saw this on this thread [webmasterworld.com...]

$uri = "http://www.mysite.com" . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$dtime = date('r');

$line = "$unixtime;$dtime;$ip;$uri;$ref";

$f = fopen("log.log", "a");

@fwrite($f, $line . "\n");

and I've got this working in a fuction in an includes file but how could i do the same with javascript? so I could enter a piece of javascript. in each file?

Thank you.

You can't write to the server with javascript. At best, you can use Javascript to submit data to a server side script (using PHP, ASP, or some other language) and write to the filesystem in that language. But that goes beyond your basic logging. You should restrict Javascript logging to capturing data in the browser that the server can't catch on it's own, and for use with third party solutions (like Google Analytics). Just use a server side script or your server logs.

If you can't see your log and you can't use server side scripting, change your web host.
