    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to find out what the best platform to track visitors will be, a hunch tells me PHP hence why I am posting here.

    Before anyone tries to say go use Google Analytics, or any of the many major trackers I need one that I can export to csv or similar to run in depth analysis.

    So ...

    Is PHP the best option to track all relevant information and export the data into a versatile format capable of being analyzed by other software like excel, access e.t.c.

    Does anyone have any tips, material or a good direction to point me to.

    Thank in advance :happy:

    there are programs that do this that are written in php. Heres some free ones which I have used in the past. Your site may become slower if your not using paid hosting due to bandwidth. Install it and add the javascript snippet in your pages.
