I have a vanilla install of Apache/2.2.20 running on Ubuntu 11.10. I would like to provide two files that can be accessed anonymously (a readme.html and a 1.7GB download).
I would like use Google Analytics to track visits to
myserver/readme.html, but provide an alternate path
myserver/private/bigdownload that is not tracked by Google Analytics or recorded in an Apache log.
My goals are in line with a standard requirements of scientific review, namely, that I provide anonymous download access. There are so few potential reviewers that even knowing the state or country could compromise anonymity.
I have thought of a few potential solutions but I relatively unfamiliar with Apache and web-server configuration:
- stop Apache from loging source ip addresses and/or other identifyable information for a specific directory (but, how?)?
- configure Google Analytics to ignore a sub-path (how?)
- find an anonymous browser that can hide location.
What is the easiest way to provide anonymous download access from a server?
