    Please help me

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Anand, I never tried on the remote machine, but you should give a try, if it works for you then it definitely works others too and don’t forget to post your output here, if you’ve tried.

    Yea, Version 0.6 fixed the F10 key binding issue. Great post Ravi, just what I needed. Very cool that it is real time.

  8. Lance says:

    This is works awesome on my nginx server. Version 0.6 just came out which fixed the F10 key in gnome term.

  9. James says:

    I had the same issue, however, I configured my log format/date in my: ~/.goaccessrc

    color_scheme 1
    date_format %d/%b/%Y
    log_format %h %^[%d:%^] %^ “%r” %s %b “%R” “%u”

  10. nobicycle says:

    Interesting, but the terminal I use captures F10, which prevents specifying the log format. Log format cannot be specified on the command line either.
