September 2018

Results are not available for September 2018 !

Each month since 2002, I've compiled a report showing the number of visitors to the EdinPhoto web site and pages most viewed during the previous month.

I've based these reports on stats provided by MatrixStats, a package provided by FastHosts, the company that hosts my web site.

Until about a year ago I had a good understanding of these stats, but then the stats started to show that quite a lot of people viewing the site, but each was viewing ZERO pages!

This appears to relate to systems which have been visiting the site and extracting pictures from it presumably automatically, without viewing any of the pages on the site.  (People making visits to the site without viewing any pages are known as 'spongers'.)

For the past few months I have been excluding figures for these automatic visits from the monthly stats that I have reported, but I've not made any attempt to stop the pictures from being taken from the site because I don't know how to do that. and I've not had the resources to investigate further.

Problem - September 2018

The problems above of people extracting pictures from the site without my permission have continued, but there also seems to have been a lot more abnormal activity on the site over the past month. 

MatrixStats gives me a list of pages viewed each month, and how many views there have been for each page.  This list usually just lists the page names for pages viewed on the site, and gives stats for each,  e.g.

/4/4eps_exhibitions_dates_1971-2000.htm

/5/8_what's_new__all_updates.htm

However, during September the list also includes many entries that refer to items other than web site pages.  e.g.

/wp-login.php

/wp/wp-admin/

/wordpress/wp-admin/

/old/wp-admin/

/blog/wp-admin

admin/Cms Wysiwyg/directive/index/

/plus/ad js.php

/blog/

/user.php

/cm.php

/wordpress/

/wp/

/cm.php

/_

/plus/read.php

/administrator/index

/vendor/phpunit/phpunit/src/Unil/PHP/asd.php

/include/dialog/select soft post.php

/wp-/content/uploads/settingsimages/2018/09/W3C/DTDXHTML ...

/zoomla/administrator/index/php

/license.php

/config/AspCms Config.asp

/phpMyAdmin/scripts/setup.php

/5/ccccccccccccccccccccccc

/plus/moon.php

 

...  and many more.  I've no idea what has been happening.  I'm still receiving a regular flow of emails from people who have been viewing the site and it appears from these that the site is still working well for them, but something else seems to be going on as well.

 

I have no expertise in this area, and no time to start learning about it, but I'll try contacting FastHosts, and see if they can throw any light on what might have been happening.

 

Meanwhile, I'll not attempt to produce any more of my monthly stats pages because I feel that the results taken from Matrixstats under current conditions could be misleading. 

 

If, instead, you'd like to look at stats for earlier months, you'll find links to them below.

 

I'm sorry to have to pass on this news to you.  There are other things that I would prefer to be doing, rather than looking into problems like this!

I've contacted FastHosts, but they have not been able to help me find what or who might have caused the problems above.

However, I now have better more info from the MatrixStats program, so I have been  able to compile the stats below for September 2018.
