Open Web Analytics

Open Web Analytics

Open Web Analytics (OWA) is an open source web analytics framework written in PHP that you can use to track and analyze how people use your websites and applications.

OWA provides website owners and developers with easy ways to add web analytics to their sites using simple Javascript, PHP, or REST based APIs.

OWA also comes with built-in support for tracking websites made with popular content management frameworks such as WordPress and MediaWiki. As a generic web analytics framework, OWA can be extended to track and analyze any web application.

 OWA 1.5.7

Free to download
