WebFaction
Community site: login faq

In a few days I will be having several domains on my WebFaction account. I always like to have a good stats overview. I could use something like Piwik but I prefer to run analytics based on server logs instead of javascript that needs to load in the users browser.

Here is my wishlist. What options do I have?

(1) Must be accessible from one location, something like stats.domain.com.

(2) Must have stats for specific domains in this one location ^.

(3) Must update at a reasonable interval, max every 24 hours.

(4) Must be reasonably light weight to not abuse memory, etc. I can use fcgi if needed.

Many thanks and I look forward to reviewing suggestions.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "must be accessible from one location". Since you suggested "stats.domain.com" I would assume that you mean each domain would have one location for its stats, on a "stats.domain.com" subdomain.

We have one-click installers for both awstats and webalizer, and both of these seem like they would meet these requirements (I prefer webalizer myself). You would create a separate "stats.domain.com" subdomain for each domain, then install webalizer (or awstats) and mount it to that domain.

Ah okay, but it's not possible to have ALL stats accessible from one domain? That's what I meant with my first requirement.

Oh, I see what you mean. No, I don't think either of these tools provides that functionality and I'm not personally familiar with any good tools that are, as it's not a feature I've ever needed. Sorry.
