Web statistics?

I have a VPS that is pretty much bare with no admin panel, I do all admin though SSH.

I want to install some kind of program to track how many people come to my website (unique visitors per day etc.)

I need a program that is very easy to install, can you help me out?

For free one I would advise awstats.

For commercial Urchin Web Analytics -

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

A good free one is analog (, it's much faster and probably much more secure than Awstats.

I recently read through some of the Awstats source code (I'm a Perl programmer) and it's pretty much a nightmare. I wish this weren't true. It would be difficult to track down security flaws, and indeed a recently-discovered exploit was responsible for major intrusions.

Awstats reports are definitely attractive. If you do use Awstats, you should password protect its directory or even generate static HTML reports and keep the script out of your Web space.

Awstats is definately better than webalizer. Looks much more professional.

I use I-stats. It's a real-time web statistics. They have a free version: ... and a paid one: ...

It's great!

PS: Well, I guess I can't send suggestions on this forum... Let's try!

Check out phpmyvisites

Check out the open source project phpMyVisites. The interface is in 25 languages. The reports look great and since it works from embedded JavaScript/image, you don't need access to the log files. Actually, anyone with php and MySQL can use it to monitor Web site traffic on their pages hosted anywhere; it supports multiple sites from the same installation. I'm really looking forward to seeing version 2. phpMyVisites is definitely worth checking out!
