Referrer analysis

Post by markhudson » Thu Aug 18, 2005 3:38 pm

I am analysing some logs created on Windows server 2003, runing iis6.

When I run ALA I get the following:

Warning: Your log file does not support Referrer. So report "Indirect Referrer Analysis" will be not shown. Read FAQ.
Warning: Your log file does not support Referrer. So report "Referrer Analysis" will be not shown. Read FAQ.
Warning: Your log file does not support Referrer site. So report "Most common referrer sites" will be not shown. Read FAQ.
Warning: Your log file does not support Referrer. So report "Search engines" will be not shown. Read FAQ.
Warning: Your log file does not support Referrer. So report "Search phrases" will be not shown. Read FAQ.
Warning: Your log file does not support Referrer. So report "Search words" will be not shown. Read FAQ.
Warning: Your log file does not support Referrer site. So report "Referrer sites of the programs" will be not shown. Read FAQ.


But I have checked on my iiS settings and the Referer box is ticked.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Could you put here first 5-10 lines of your log file?
Verify that you have cs(Referer) field in your log file header.

You see you don't have cs(Referer) field in #Field line.
So information about Referer is not recorded into your log file.
Try to setup correct log format.

If you're using IIS then go into the site properties, click on Log Properies button. Click on the Advances tab and scroll downt to the bottom. Make sure u got Referer checked!
