Getting more accurate data.

Love the stats so far, but I was wondering if it is possible to somehow filter out the URLs for "/" and "/soap/". Those two URLs are getting the bulk of my traffic and are therefore causing entries such as the daily hits statistic to be misleading in regards to the actual number of downloads.

Sorry to hear that. It´s worth knowing, however, that those are actual hits that your bucket is seeing. It´s just the typical background spider/bot traffic that every public site on the internet sees.

So while it may be throwing off your download counts if that´s all you´re using the stats for, it´s actually correct data.

You might consider downloading the webalizer.conf file in your /stats/ folder, and modifying it to filter out those urls. You can find information on how to to that by googling Webalizer and digging through the readme.txt for that package. Once you´ve changed it, you can simply upload it back to your bucket and we´ll apply it on the next run.
