Convert log file to excel

This is a question I get asked a lot, I have spoken at quite a few conferences and wrote quite a lot of articles across the web on how and why you should be doing server log analysis.

The most common question I get asked is:

How do I convert my log files into Excel?

The format the file comes in from the server isn’t readable by most programmes installed on your machine.

There are a few ways to convert the files, but these usually involve paying a monthly fee and have to automate the process of getting your log data into their platform.

While all that can be very useful for large sites, for small sites it can become very expensive very quickly. Especially if you manage a handfull of small sites.

It’s like Screaming Frog vs DeepCrawl.

Deepcrawl is great for large sites when you’re managing one site, but if you manage quite a few small websites it can quickly become expensive and thats the same with this.

I had an old bit of software about 5 years ago which was great but for some reason, the developer stopped updating the software and after a while it stopped working.

That’s why I decided to create this tool – its will quickly convert your server logs into an excel file so you can analyse the data.
