If it isn't already, you first need to seperate log entries for each virtual host site from the default log file. to do this, add a "TransferLog" line in each VirtualHost directive, e.g:

<VirtualHost 123.123.123.123>
 ServerName www.domain.com
 DocumentRoot /home/www/adomain
 TransferLog /home/logs/www.adomain.com-access.log
</VirtualHost>

That will seperate out log entries for the www.adomain.com web site to the www.adomain.com-access.log file in /home/logs. You can also seperate out errors by using "ErrorLog" and calling the file www.adomain.com-error.log. This is handy when trying to debug CGI scripts, etc.

I would recommend using webalizer - http://www.webalizer.org , it is a C binary package that is installed on the server, but is very fast and can be controlled by a Perl or PHP script (I have written a PHP script to do this, but is not ready for release yet).

You could set up a nightly, or weekly cron job to process a log file, then tell webalizer to output the results to a directory in a virtual host's web space for the user to read.

Please post a link for the PHP when you have finished!
