Access and Security

To improve privacy and security your statistics are not publicly available and can only be accessed via your your NetGate Hosting Control Panel. You can access your control panel using the following URL:

https://my_domain:8443/

Statistics files are stored in a subdirectory named "stats" which is located in your home directory.

For more information concerning the details produced by the awstats application please refer to the manual.

Un-Processed (raw log) Statistics

Raw (unprocessed) logs are available for ftp download from your raw logs directory. Your raw logs directory is located outside of your directory space in the "rawlogs" directory under your home directory. In your raw logs directory you will find the current daily logs as well as archive files of the past three months of activity. You can use ftp to download the files for processing by a standalone statistics application running on your local computer. Use the following URL to download these logs from a web browser. Or, you can use any standard ftp application to login and transfer the files just as you would with any other file.

To log on to an FTP site that requires a password using a web browser you would type the URL in this form ftp://user:password@ftpserver/url-path

where user is your user name, ftpserver is the ftp server address, password is the password, and url-path is the directory to log in to. The url-path to view your raw logs directory would be "/usr/local/apache/logs/www.my_domain". Replace "my_domain" with your actual domain name. For example to get a listing of the raw logs directory for a customer with a login name of "user", a password of "password", and a domain of abc.com" you would use a URL such as:

ftp://user:password@ftp.abc.com/home_dir_path/rawlogs

Note: When you use the steps in this article to log on to a secure FTP site, your user name and password may be displayed in plain text in the Browser title bar or status bar, while you are connected to the FTP site.
