How to setup and view search reports?

Search Keywords Reports show how much search activity your site is getting, the top keywords that people are looking for, and a sample of the most recent queries.  To setup and view search reports, you must select the PHP search engine.

In the "Options" window, on the "Basic Options" panel, select "PHP" script type and check the "Supports Search Keywords Reports" option. You can also set a password for accessing the report.

PHP search engine consists of four files:

* search.php -This is a search query page. You can edit this file to customize the search box, or you can copy the search box scripts to another HTML file;
* searchresult.php - This is the search result page. You can edit this file to customize the search result page;
* searchfunc.php - These are the search function scripts. Do not modify anything in this file;
* searchdb.php - This is the search engine database file. Do not modify this file;

If you have selected PHP search engine report, there may be two other files:
* report.php - This is the search reports page
* search.log - This is the search log file

To add site search to your site do the following:
1. Upload the search engine files to the web server, using any FTP client (such as CuteFTP).
2. Run search.php to access the search query page. You can also copy the form in search.php file to another Web page to access the search box.

To view the search engine reports generated by your website search engine, do the following:
1. Upload the search engine report files to the Web server, using any FTP client (such as CuteFTP). These two files should be placed in the same directory as the search engine files.
2. Set CHMOD for search.log file as 666 (read/write for user/group/all)
3. Run report.php to view the search reports.

If you use the built-in FTP tool in the Composer, it will automatically CHMOD the search.log file.

What is CHMOD?

CHMOD is used to change file attributes. To activate the report function of the PHP search engine, you must set CHMOD for "search.log" file as 666 (read/write for user/group/all).

How to CHMOD a file?

You can use your FTP client software (duch as CuteFTP) to CHMOD a file. This is easy to do.
After uploading the search engine files to your FTP server, in the server file list, right-click "search.log" file. On the popup menu, click "Properties/CHMOD" or "Attributes/CHMOD". In the "properties" window, set "permission" to "666". Now the attribute of file "search.log" will be "-rw-rw-rw-".
