CowAxess Installation/Usage


Supported platforms: Vista/2008(R2)/7/8/2012(R2)/2016/10/2019

CowAxess comes as a zip archive containing a Nullsoft Installer package, which will extract contents to a directory and create a shorcut (portable mode). Unzip the downloaded file and run the installer :

  1. Click Next at Welcome-page
  2. View license agreement.
  3. Specify an installation location.
  4. Installation starts. By clicking 'Details' button, you can get more detailed information about installation.

You're DONE!  CowAxess is installed on your machine.


 Uninstallation is no more than removing the directory itself.



A Bash/Mintty terminal environment can be started via the cowaxess.cmd file at the root of the installation directory.


GoAccess Get Started page is a nice starter. In short:

Terminal output goaccess access.log -c
Static HTML output goaccess access.log -o report.html --log-format=COMBINED
Real-time HTML output goaccess access.log -o /var/www/html/report.html --log-format=COMBINED --real-time-html


GoAccess is very powerful and flexible. Check man page, Github or  FAQs for more information.
