ShortStat Beta 3
An upgrade to v0.34b is now available.
ShortStat is a modest, home rolled referrer and site activity monitor. Beta 3? What happened to 2? Well, the “first” version that you may be familiar with was actually the second build but the first public version.
New in this version:
- Search engine keyword tracking. Currently supports all international versions of Google, AllTheWeb, Yahoo, MSN & AOL. More can be added upon request.
- Optional IP-to-Country mapping using the IP-to-Country Database provided by WebHosting.Info
- Support for hosting ShortStat on a different subdomain (see shortstat.shauninman.com/free/ for an example of a worn in installation)
- Quoted associative arrays to avoid conflicts on some set-ups
- Better care with variable naming, those that aren’t prefixed with
SI_will be phased out at a later date in favor of a web-based configuration
An installer and an update from v0.2b are included in the package. As before ShortStat is provided strictly on an as is basis. You are soley responsible and liable for any damage you do to your website or server.

While making this update I had an opportunity to get nice and friendly with my ShortStat database of 55k+ hits and I’m beginning to realize that the original ideal of a single table stats package just isn’t practical. With only 55k hits my ShortStat table was 10.2MB. I think the next version will require a normalized, multi-table database if it’s going to be scalable.
