New in version 1.2.5:

  • -Fixed a bug introduced in 1.2 where search engine stats were being recorded correctly but search terms were not being stored.
  • -Fixed an error in installation script

Before proceding please make sure your webserver is running at least PHP 4.3 and you have a configured MySQL Database.

1) Uncompress the archive, upload Polar Statistics
2) Perform a basic configuration by modifying ‘polarstats_config.php’ to your liking.
3) Run the INSTALL.php script to setup the databases.
4) Include the monitoring script on any page you would like to track statistics on. The page must be parsed by your php engine which usually requires the code to be placed in php tags and have a file name with .php as the extension. Use the following code to include the monitor:
include ‘polarstats/polarstats_monitor.php’;

Installation instructions are included in the README.


If you are upgrading from version 1.1.4 or lower you must visit http://www.yourdomain.com/polarstats/upgrade.php to upgrade the database to a version compatible with version 1.2.5. If you do not upgrade stats will not be recorded.
