    i'm just curious to see how many people have visited my site. Does apache have a built in way to do this? LIke logging every ip request and when, or do i need to just use a pearl script?

    read through /var/log/httpd/access_log

    Also, you might want to install some sort of log analysis software to make it easier to make sense of the logs. Webalyzer comes by default with Fedora.

    win32 machine :(

    Maybe this will be my next boredom project, setup a working server in *nix. What killed last time was ftp, but i may play around.

    ahahhahaha, this is by FAR the dumbest user error i've ever had. I was searching on the computer i work on for the files, NOT the server ahahhah

    whew, i'll check the server and see if the win version also uses a access_log folder/file.

    hahahah
