Can anyone one recommend one. I've got a load of log files from a client's new hosting account and have never used them before.... any suggestions?

    I've never used any actual applications to do this task. Is it possible to use something like Awstats to analyze the logs?

    I dont know... you can only access the log files by logging into a special FTP account, so I'm guessing maybe not... it's a strange hosting company in general... you can only access mySQL via the shell prompt which is a mother-f****

    Hmm... it would be a pain to transfer those to your computer first, I'm guessing.

    How can they limit access via the shell prompt? Couldn't you go in via the shell and add rights to otherwise access the mysql database? But yeah, that's strange to begin with.

    So far this is the only one I've found, but it's for Windows only. WebLog Expert Lite.

    About mysql, I think you can install phpmyadmin yourself.
    or... Do you have ssh access? maybe you can try tunnelling mysql over ssh and use Mysql query browser or phpmyadmin localy on your mac. That would be more secure.

    With ssh acces you could with Os X - I guess - write an easy script that download your log with "scp" and analyse it then. You just have to add it to your crontab.

    If you can make a back-up of your data (rsync for the files and your logs, and mysqldumb for the database) over ssh, that a good hosting company. That will save you lot of bother.

    About the log files: download them to your box and use Analog. Google for its url, I have it running on my Mac.

    There are some important informations missing.

    For example in the demo of analog, you have the number of failed request, but no list of these request.
