I know very little, but I do know that I have some server space given by my University with a file called public_html which anyone can load html and other files from. So is there a simple way to add some file and edit it with vim or give it a special name and have it collect the number of times a web browser loads a particular html file in public_html? I figure since there are a lot of settings files such as .vimrc or .forward which simply require a name and maybe input. I am hoping there is something like this which will record each time html is accessed in my public_html folder.
Is there such a thing, or am I too hopeful? It seems like a practical feature but like I said I really do not know much about this stuff. Thanks.
I actually do not know if this server space is apache or not, but my engineer account definitely says apache 2.2.15 (Red Hat) at the bottom of any 404 error, so I am really just guessing.
