Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description wiki 2006-04-18 14:16:49 UTC
At Wikibooks we need to know the page useage (hit count per 
page). The Apache Common Log Format ( 
[ ) 
contains all the data that is needed to ascertain page use. 
The proposal is for a download of the Apache Logs for 
Wikibooks to Wikibooks on a daily or weekly basis. It would be 
acceptable if the IP addresses and dates were removed from the 
download if they would violate Wiki privacy rules. Please 
liase with myself or Rob Horning at Wikibooks.

The issue has been discussed most recently at Wikibooks:

and on other occasions.

Of more interest, and concern, to me is the admission on the linked discussion
page that you've been "slipping hit counters" into pages.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-04-18 20:56:06 UTC
We don't keep such logs at this time; it's prohibitive with the 
way the squids are set up. Resolving LATER for when we have 
something set up with statistical sampling.

I would stress that the hit counter ran on an ISP's server, 
not a Wikimedia server and it used an external link and 
redirect back to Wikibooks that were flagged as such. Done 
honestly and admitted openly. The reason for the request is 
to avoid such extraordinary measures just to find out if 
anyone is reading a book!

Changing all WONTFIX high priority bugs to lowest priority (no mail should be generated since I turned it off for this.)
Comment 5 Dan Collins 2011-11-29 21:55:49 UTC
This information is available from Dumps are also available for raw analysis. Closing fixed.
Comment 6 Andre Klapper 2012-12-03 13:59:09 UTC
[mass-moving wikistats reports from Wikimedia→Statistics to Analytics→Wikistats to have stats issues under one Bugzilla product (see bug 42088) - sorry for the bugspam!]
