I have a solution where I need to log visitors to show "most viewed articles".To do this I'm using:
To do this, I have to enable logging on the site which is done, however the data is not stored.I copied the settings from "filelogappender", and changed the file to "statistics.txt".
The warning on the statistic page disappeared, but I can't find the log file.
What I really want to do is to store the log in the database. The only informationI found on this was:
but I'm not sure if this is valid any more. F.ex. I can't find %programFiles%/EPiServer.LogService/EPiServer.LogService.exe.config.
So is this still valid??
In advance thanks for all replies!
for CMS 5+ its located
C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\Shared\Services\Log Service
I have used the log service / log generator to create such a feature once. It worked, except that the statistics were cleared now and then (when the application pool was recycled?). That might be because I did something wrong, but I would still suggest you look at other approaches for acheiving this, because the log service / statistics (at least in the current form) will be obsoleted, see http://labs.episerver.com/en/Blogs/Fredrik-Tjarnberg/Dates/2009/4/Statistics-log-about-to-be-obsoleted/
