Remixer and GreggPress plans do not include site analytics (excluding older GreggPress Legacy plans). If you want to collect site statistics on your GreggPress site, make sure Jetpack is enabled.

Any fully hosted website on a GreggPress account can have site statistics added to it. The stat service keeps track of the following data:

the total amount of requests
traffic by domain, traffic by file, traffic by browser type, traffic by operating system, traffic by referring URLs, and more!

Adding a stats user

You must first establish a stats user before your site can begin logging statistics. For more information, see the following article:

Getting Statistics

Where can I view my stats?

To get a copy of your statistics report, go to:

Go to your domain name and then to /stats. If your site is called, for example, go to to get a login prompt.
When asked, provide a username and password. The credentials are the stats user’s username and password that you created.
In order to access the /stats login page if you’re using a CMS like WordPress, you may need to add additional code to your site’s.htaccess file.

For further information, see the article Making Stats Accessible with htaccess.

What do site statistics track?

For more information on what is tracked and what reports are accessible, see the following article:

Analog \sExplanation of results

The majority of the data in your reports is organized by date, #reqs, and #pages:

The number of files requested during a page request is represented by #reqs. When you request a single page, you are also requesting all of the material on that page. A single page visit produces 26 requests: 25 requests for the images and 1 request for the page if a page has 25 images.
#pages is the total number of pages requested, not the number of individual files. Because only that single page is requested in the #reqs example above, the #pages value equals 1. If you had 10 visits and 40 page views, that means each person looked at an average of four pages. More page views per visitor indicates that visitors are staying longer on your site and consuming more content.
For a more detailed explanation of statistics results, see the following article:

Viewing the raw log files

Logging into your web server will allow you to check the raw log files for your metrics rather than a statistics report. A folder named /logs exists in your user’s home directory.

Instructions on how to access this folder can be found in the error log article.

Your stat logs can then be found in the following directories. Make sure you use your Shell user’s username.

/home/username/logs/ \s/home/username/logs/ \s/home/username/logs/

How and when are site usage stats generated?

Stats are generated once a day, in the early morning, and examine the previous day’s data. By noon the next day, Pacific Time, statistics for a given day should be accessible.
