Looking for a good tracker / referrer.

Hi all. I am looking for a good web tracker / referrer with daily /weekly stats that will work?? with virtual websites on apache. It must be a single script to go in one cgi-bin and work for all virtual webs. Is this possible and if so can anyone recommend a good one.thanks

It will need to display stats ONLY for the particular virtual web.

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.

Thanks. Best answer I've recieved. PErfect. I didn't think to do the logs into the home dir.
Please post a link for the PHP when you have finished!
