SmarterStats 8.x Help
This documentation is for a product that is no longer supported by SmarterTools.


System administrators can use this section to manage the sites in SmarterStats. To access this section, click the sites icon. Note: System admins running SmarterStat Enterprise will have a separate dropdown available at the tip of the navigation pane. This dropdown allows system admins to select the server they want to manage from the Management Reporting Server they're logged into. This makes managing multiple servers from a single interface much easier and much more organized.

Navigating Sites

When you view the sites on the server, the page is divided into two sections. (For more information, please review the System Admin Interface Diagram.)

  • The navigation pane displays the sites on the server. To view details for a specific site, simply click the desired site.
  • The content pane displays all available details about the selected site.

In general, the following options are available from the navigation pane toolbar:

  • New - Adds a new site to SmarterStats.
  • Actions - Click this button and select one of the following options:
  • Select All - Selects all of the sites on the server.
  • Delete - Permanently removes the selected site(s) from SmarterStats.
  • Move Site - Moves the site statistics to another server supported by the SmarterStats Web interface. Note: This option is only available in SmarterStats Enterprise. Selecting this option will only move the SmarterLogs; it will not move the physical site or its standard log files.
  • Re-import Log Files - Deletes the SmarterLog files for the site and re-imports them, starting with the earliest files.
  • Re-import SEO - Reprocess SEO statistics. This option is useful if there was an error collecting SEO data, the search engine was down, etc.
  • Reprocess Log Files - Reprocesses the log file data. Note: Log file data will not be re-imported.
  • Run Diagnostics - Select this option if you suspect one or more files may have gotten corrupted. SmarterStats will run an automated diagnostic of all files required for this site.
  • View - Allows for customization of how Sites are listed.
  • Sort - Sets the sort order for the Sites on the server in either ascending or descending order, and by site name, site ID, server name or status.
  • Visible Fields - Sets the fields that are displayed along with each site. This includes site name, site ID, server name or status.

In general, the following options are available from the content pane toolbar:

  • Edit - Edits the site settings.
  • Delete - Permanently removes the selected site(s) from SmarterStats.
  • View Site Stats - Opens the site statistics in a new window. Note: This is also the same as impersonating a site administrator.
  • Impersonate User - Allows the system administrator to view site statistics as a selected user.
