    Hey folks,

    I've been asked to find a solution that would let us track downloads in ONE directory on our webserver. We're looking to track WHEN, (hopefully) WHO, HOW OFTEN, and WHERE FROM the downloads are stemming.

    I'd like to see it keep track of ONLY the designated directory, not our entire site, since we've already got that (Webalizer).

    I'm wondering if we can keep track of this by assigning another instance of webalizer to the ONE directory we're interested in.

    If you know of a better tracking software out there that would suit my needs a little better, I'd really appreciate it :x:

    I don't get it, just filter your logs?

    I don't know what kind of logs you have, but most keep track of every download from every IP.

    Right, and I'm looking for something simple to use to interpret them.

    I feel like I'm missing something here :o

    Well, I guess I would just use a simple parser to extract the specific GET statements.
