to use Witness Log
- CGI（Common Gateway Interface) or ＳＳＩ（Ｓｅｒｖｅｒ
Ｓｉｄｅ Ｉｎｃｌｕｄｅ） has to be run on your web server.
- ＦＴＰ has to be avaliable.
Step1: Unzip installation file
- Copy installation file to working directory.
- Unzip installation file.
Step2: Execute setup.exe
Step3: Install LogWrite.cgi
to your Web Server
Before we start to install LogWrite
to your Web server, we walk thru the mechanism of LogWriter.
Please see the chart in below.
When visitor comes to index.html in your Web server, LogWriter is automatically
invoked from the tags embeded in index.html file. LogWriter will run
as CGI program on your server and write a log record to index.wit file.
LogWriter will write factors in below every time it's invoked.
- Access date and time
- Visitor's host name
- Visitor's IP address
- ReferURL ( Wher are visitors from?)
- The information of visitor's browser and operationg
Then Witness will analyze log records in index.wit
file. We call index.wit "Witness Log File".
IMPORTANT: Witness Log File name and location
can be changed as needed, but prefix of the file has to be .wit. If
you put different prefix to the Witness Log File, it will not be recognized
as Witness Log File.
Once you install witness to your computer, you have LogWiter.cgi, LogWriter.pl
and LogWriter.csh(for SSI) in server diectory. Please select the one
will be fit to your server's environment. The chart in above described
