Webstats Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the requirements for Webstats?
A: Webstats Requirements are:

Q: My pages have only HTML. Do I have to change their extensions from .htm and .html to .php
A: Even though Webstats is programmed using PHP, it doesn't mean you can't use the services it offers in pages that aren't written in PHP. You don't even need to learn PHP or change the all the file extensions to .php. If you have an Apache Server, all you have to do is create (or modify) a file named .htaccess in a directory containing your files and paste the following code in it: AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html. There are other solutions available for servers that do not use Apache. Try searching the web for them.

Q: I can download Webstats from your website. Where is the source code for Webstats?
A: Webstats consists mostly of .php files, which means you can download Webstats and then open the file(s) you are interested in using any text editor, source code editor (such as Notepad++), or your favorite program for this job.

Q: Where does Webstats get its geolocation data?
A: Webstats uses free, GPL-licensed geolocation data from HostIP.info. Hostip.info is a community-based project to geolocate IP addresses that makes its database freely available. Just like Webstats, HostIP is a non-profit project, so please help them by contributing.
