SmarterStats 3.x Help
This documentation is for a product that is no longer supported by SmarterTools.

Installation

SmarterStats comes as a single installation file that contains everything necessary to run the product. The SmarterStats installer can be downloaded from www.smartertools.com. The FREE Edition and the licensed version of SmarterStats are both contained within this installation file, so it will not be necessary to download or install the file again if you purchase a license after trying the FREE Edition.

Note: If you are using Enterprise Edition and installing the product on a remote server, use the service MSI installer package instead of the standard installer.

Note: Users of Windows 2003 Advanced Server may need to install SmarterStats from Add/Remove Programs in the control panel in order for file permissions to be properly set.

If you have IIS 5.0 or later, it is recommended that you run the SmarterStats web interface under IIS instead of using the built-in web server for performance reasons. See the topic Running as an IIS site for more information.
