How to format User Account Definitions in the FlashStats configuration file.
The FlashStats configuration file (FlashStats.ini on Windows and Mac, or FlashStats.conf on UNIX), contains "user account definitions" at the bottom of the file. Each of these lines contains all of the data for one FlashStats user account.
The distinguishing feature of a user account is that it points to the log files to be analyzed. For FlashStats installation at ISPs that host many different web sites, each user account is usually configured to point to a different set of log files.
The user account definition consists of several key=value pairs, separated by semicolons. The first pair must always start with user=.
The most important thing to remember is that all of the key=value pairs must be on one long line! Do not break up the parameters onto separate lines!
Finally, please note that just above the user account definitions at the bottom of the configuration file, there are some paragraphs of comment text which explain what each of the parameters do. The parameters must not follow each individual paragraph of explanation. Instead, they must be put all on one line to form a complete user account definition.
Here's an example of a correct user account definition:
Note that this valid user account definition is on one long line.
Here is an example of an incorrect user account definition:
This user account definition is incorrect because the parameters occur on separate lines.
