I’m cofused on what “requests” on the statistics page actually means. Yesterday on my website counter I received 22 hits. On my Dreamhost Statistics page it list 1,865 requests. Also I am the only “user” listed on Dreamhost. I visited my website 6 times yesterday and limited my visit to just my home page. Didn’t go to any other page on my site. According to my Dreamhost Statistics page the user (me) had 46 requests (again I only visited my home page). I’m confused at the large difference in numbers from actual hits to requests. I read the definition of request supplied by Dreamhost but still 22 hits=1,865 requests! My website is not that popular. Any ideas?

one page may call 46 files, pages and requests are different
