Installing Logaholic via Softaculous
Logaholic is a program that allows you to track statistics for your website. These stats allow you to see things such as how many hits your site gets on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. You can use these stats to compare and see trends to help your site become more efficient.
This article guides you on how to install Logaholic using the Softaculous installer tool located within your cPanel. (Shared servers have this program installed, but VPS and Dedicated servers must request this as a premium service.)
