    Shoutmeloud is hosted on Dreamhost  and it offers some great feature within it’s custom panel and one of them is stats feature. Almost every web hosting account comes with a stats monitoring service. In   Dreamhost if you are using WordPress or Joomla you need to make few changes in your .htaccess file to access stats.

    Your domain stats can be access via

    http://domain.com/stats

    To access your .htaccess file you need to use either any web FTP client or Filezilla.

    For more detail on this refer to : How to edit .htaccess file

    By default, wordpress .htaccess file has following codes :

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

     

    You need to add these codes before the above code

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(stats|failed_auth\.html).*$ [NC]
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    </IfModule>

     

    In the end your .htaccess file should have following content :

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(stats|failed_auth\.html).*$ [NC]
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    </IfModule> 
    
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Now point to your domain stats URL mentioned above . Use your Web ID and Panel login password to access Web stats.

    I hope this will help whose website and blogs are hosted on Dreamhost.
