mod_uid 1.1.0

mod_uid is a module issuing the "correct" cookies for counting the site visitors.
mod_uid is a module issuing the "correct" cookies for counting the site visitors.

What's New in This Release:

What it actually does:
if the user has provided the cookie header with the correct cookie-name, the module writes this cookie in notes with the name uid_got (accordingly, then it may be written to the log);
if the user has arrived without the required cookie, the module issues the SetCookie header for him/her and writes the cookie thus issued in notes with the name uid_set (and this may also be written to the log);
if built-in P3P support is included, the P3P header is also issued as the Set-Cookie header is issued.

Advantages:
the cookie contains the date it is issued and the "service number" (that is, the number specified during configuring); thus, it helps one understand when the user first arrived at our site and where exactly he/she arrived;
multiserver work is supported: under accurate configuring (or its total absence ;), it is guaranteed that the cookie issued to the user will be unique;
the cookie issued to the user and the one received from him/her are not mingled in the log file;
the cookies are 128 bit long, and one may work with them in the log analyzer (quick search etc.) using ready source code intended for working with IPv6 (for example, libpatricia);
support of P3P (minimal) is provided.

Requirements:

Apache 1.3, 2.x

Installation:

While configuring Apache, add the following to ./configure parameters: --add-module=/path/to/mod_uid.c:

tar xzvf apache_1.3xxx
