SmarterStats 11.x Help

Running as an IIS Site

By default, SmarterStats installs a basic Web server that allows companies to start using the application immediately after installation. However, SmarterTools recommends moving to Microsoft IIS, a more robust and secure Web server. For step-by-step instructions on configuring SmarterStats to run with Microsoft IIS, please refer to the SmarterTools knowledge base.

Alternatively, you may run SmarterStats as a virtual directory under an existing site. However, this is not recommended. For more information, please refer to the SmarterTools knowledge base.

Note: This help topic assumes familiarity with Microsoft IIS and how it works. SmarterTools recommends using the basic Web server included with SmarterStats if you are unfamiliar with or uncomfortable using Microsoft IIS, but only when gathering and reporting on statistics for a single site.
