Updating from CrazyStat 1.5x or 1.6x is described only in the German FAQ (because CrazyStat < 1.70 was German-only)

Quick Installation (Steps in brackets only for counter!)

This guide is intended for experienced users.

  1. Unzip the file
  2. (Choose/download counter style (graphics in stat/usr/counter_styles/ - others on http://en.christosoft.de/Crazystat/Counter_styles)
  3. (Convert counter style to PNG (or gif, if your GDLib supports gif) (see FAQ) and save it to "stat/usr/counter_styles")
  4. Open stat/usr/config.php and adjust settings (esp. $config_rel_path)
  5. Upload the "stat"-folder with all its sub-folders and files
  6. Set chmod 777 for stat/usr and all of its files and subfolders and stat/src/log-tool
  7. Insert <?php @include_once("stat/src/include.php"); ?> between <body> and </body> for every page to be counted, change file extension ".html" or ".htm" to ".php" (if it's not already ".php"). See FAQ: "CrazyStat in .html-files", "Count pages in different folders"
  8. Open statistic (http://www.example.com/stat/). If password protection is active, please change password when logging in. Default-user is "admin", password is "pass".

If you changed "stat" into something else, you need to adjust the code (step 7) and $config_rel_path (step 4)!

Detailed Installation process with counter

  1. Unzip the file somewhere on your local hard drive (e.g. with 7-Zip)
  2. The choose a counter style. You find styles in "stat/usr/counter_styles" that are ready for usage. On http://en.christosoft.de/Crazystat/Counter_styles you find more styles, links to pages with even more styles as well as hints on how to make your own style.
  3. Now make sure your counter style is in PNG-format (or GIF if your server supports it). You can find instructions under FAQ on how to convert your counter style to PNG. Place your style in "stat/usr/counter_styles".
  4. Open "stat/usr/config.php" in a text editor (such as Notepad or PSPad) and adjust the settings according to your needs (esp. $config_rel_path). The file name of the counter file has to be set in $config_counter_file_name and $config_counter_enabled=true; must be set to activate the counter.
