History:

7 march 2001: A minor improvement as you can now define if you want to be notified for each new affiliate signup.

30 september 2000: SMTP email support for NT servers.

28 June 2000: Cookies time range now defined in days, to avoid manual updates.

15 June 2000: Listing is now broken into pages to avoid stall from big lists.

01 June 2000: Automatically generated password on sign-up sent by email. This way only valid email addresses receive the password.

30 April 2000: Admin now gives raw clicks IP and URL logs directly, no need to see it by FTP anymore. small bug fixed on click.cgi.

27 April 2000 : NEW Release! VERSION 2.0…This new version is more powerfull because it changes the way affiliate log are processed. Now each member as 1 file instead of being saved in a flat text database. This allows a better response on simultaneous clicks from several affiliates. Also avoids slow down on big affiliate lists. Now there are no limits on affiliates . I highly recommend the upgrade, a converter and instructions are included to convert log files into the new version system. Refering click URL is now also saved on clicks.txt to better catch cheaters.

25 feb 2000 : New Admin.cgi ! Keyword search added. Also a raw-click log of IP numbers by affiliate is performed and easily accessed from the admin menu to track cheaters. Very helpfull. Just replace admin.cgi by the new one and add clicks.txt file to your cgi-bin folder.

14 feb 2000 : 2 last IP numbers are now recorded to prevent “ping-pong” between 2 computers while keeping fast redirection. Replace click.cgi by the new one. For Windows NT there is now a separate click-NT.cgi file to use instead of click.cgi.

05 feb 2000 : a small bug fixed that caused a log.txt duplication on some occasions. Download new release and replace your click.cgi by the new one!

20 jan 2000:log file saved more securely ! If you downloaded before 12 jan 2000, you must upgrade!

This version generates also a log backup and sends a mail to webmaster when an error occurs on the log. This allows quick replacement of the bad log by the backup.

Basically, you have to replace click.cgi file by the new one. Add the log_back.txt file to cgi folder (and chmod it to 777) and add some lines to the config.cgi file (find those lines on the new config.cgi file).
