How do I view my site's stats?
You may view your site's stats by going to the following URL:

     http://www.yourdomain.com/stats/

(remembering to replace "yourdomain.com" with your actual domain name)

You can get/set your username and password for this area in the "Status > Stats".

Note that some web application software such as Movable Type, Greymatter, and Drupal may 'steal' the /stats request and try to process it itself instead of letting you view your stats. Typically the stealing of the URL is done with a set of mod_rewrite rules in a .htaccess file. You can edit the .htaccess file and add these two extra rules in the main set to pass through the requests for /stats:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/stats/(.*)$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/failed_auth.html$
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [L]

If you use WordPress 1.5 with .htaccess rewrite rules active you ONLY need
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/stats/(.*)$ [OR]

For your site stats to work with Drupal, you will need to modify .htaccess in a slightly different way (notice the exclamation marks):

# Rewrite URLs of the form 'index.php?q=x':
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/stats/(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/failed_auth.html$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]

For analyzing my site stats, I really like Summary (http://summary.net/). I'm not affiliated with them, just a happy customer. The only problem is I end up wasting huge amounts of time looking at my web logs instead of doing other things.
