I’m a bit of a stats freak so on some days, I’ll keep checking my site to see what the hits, bandwidth, where my site it being linked to etc etc. I was wondering if it was possible that when I go to “www.examplesite.com/stats” I could view the stats in a different way instead of the default. Before I came here, I used bluehost as my webhost and there was a bit where it could, “generate pretty stats” and I really liked the way if generated the stats.
Some people install awstats.
Or, there’s always raw logs, and custom analysis.
They recently hired more support help.
Tip me (and DreamHost gets 5%+$0.30)
I use TraceWatch on some of my sites, which provides real-time stats.
I should note that it does require a line of PHP on each page to be monitored and it doesn’t play nice with the default DreamHost PHP5 install, but works fine under PHP4.
Edit: I have managed to get it working under PHP5, but it required a local copy of the PHP executable and slightly modified php.ini file.

Yeah, AWstats is what I want. But I’m stumped on how to install it. Yeah, even the link you provided still confused me and I am still new to webdesigning and only just got my head round html
I have an AWstats package zipped and ready to go with INSTALL instructions:
