To install D4WStatsLittle in a website created using Dreamweaver it is necessary to first define the website you are working in. Then, just click the "Install D4WStatsLittle" in the Dreamweaver commands menu. This step is required for every page where you want to track the web stats.
Set write permissions on the folder "/d4wstats/d4wfiles/logs/" created on your web site. This step is required only once for a web site.
If you are not using Dreamweaver:
Copy the folder "d4wstats" onto your site's root
Set write permissions on the folder "/d4wstats/d4wfiles/logs/"
If you want to prevent unauthorized access to your web stats, the easiest way is to protect the folder "/d4wstats/report/" with a password from your web server or your web control panel. You can ask your hosting support how to do this. Otherwise, you can simply rename the folder "/d4wstats/report/" with a secret name, example "/d4wstatslittle/my-secret-word/" and then access the reports at the address http://your-web-site/d4wstats/my-secret-word/.
If you want to prevent your own visits to be tracked by the system you can add filtered IP address into the file "/d4wstats/blocked-ips.txt". Add one IP address per line. You can add as many addresses as you want.
