Hey there, i have an Arch box set up as a web server and i serve up some large files, i can look at /var/log/httpd/access_log but a lot of it doesnt make much sense to me. i get stuff like
126.96.36.199 - - [28/Sep/2004:14:25:40 -0700] "GET /Flux.jpg HTTP/1.1" 200 162591 "http://www.justlinux.com/forum/showthre … genumber=3" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10"
188.8.131.52 - - [28/Sep/2004:14:25:47 -0700] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 404 273 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10"
i get a little lost in it but i am very curious about what is going on in there.
is there a program for Arch that can anaylize this for me, or have me view it to where it makes more sense?
thanks for any suggestions
On my webhosting, I have access to 2 analyzers: analog and webalizer...
I prefer webalizer out of the 2

webalizer looks great is there a package or PKGBUILD for it?
Whoah! I think I just had an epiphany about my web surfing and the associated security risks involved when I do...
I'm interested in this topic as well, since I'm a rookie when it comes to running my own web server. I was looking at the second webanalyzer, went to their website, checked out some of the graphs and statistics a web server can collect.
* As dumb (or busy) as I am, I didn't realize (or pay attention to browser warnings) that a web server knows what site you just came from and where you went. With my online transactions, both business and personal, I think I'll close out my browser immediately after I make any online financial transaction or query.
I'm a little paranoid but as I hop from site to site, the last thing I want is someone hosting a site to glean the fact I just went to my online banking login screen.
With respect to the topic of this thread, I think I'll use the second one you showed. So, thanks for the info.
The site you visit before the current site is stored in the "Referrer:" HTTP header in an HTTP request.
You can use a web proxy such as squid, ijb, privoxy (there's a build, search the forums) and configure the proxy to strip the Referrer out.
