Need history or log

Postby TRex » Tue Dec 05, 2017 8:55 am

Trying to set up PCs with access limited to online games, but most games run scripts from third-party sites. Need a list of sites PWB is attempting to access, but nothing is saved to History.txt file. Here are portions of INI file:

You have a few issues with how you have the history file set up in your INI file.

[Security]
WriteHistoryFile=True
TrackURL=True <t>
ShowAccessDialog=True
LogAccess=True <a-> <a+> <a;>

The added text in the setting is causing PWB to set it to false. Change it to the following.

[Security]
WriteHistoryFile==True
TrackURL=True
LogAccess=True

You have the history file in the same folder as the PWB executable file.

[Files]
HistoryFile=history.txt

This is normally fine as long as the folder is writable by the user logged onto the computer using PWB. This can cause the history file not to be written if you are running PWB from a network location that is not writable or PWB is located in the "Program Files *" folder, as this folder is not writable. In either of these case you should locate the history file to a folder that is writable such as a new folder off the root such as "C:\PWB\history.txt".

[Files]
HistoryFile=C:\PWB\history.txt

Sorry for the slow response. Called away on family emergency, first day back.
Thanks for the help. Even though I set
HistoryFile=C:\PWB\history.txt

it is saving the history to C:\PWB\history%COMPUTERNAME%.txt — but it looks like it will give me what I need, so I'm just shrugging this off and going with the flow!

You have the following set in your INI file.

[Security]
StationEnvironmentVariable=COMPUTERNAME
UseUniqueHistoryFiles=True

Which is appending the computer name to the history file name, hence the "C:\PWB\history%COMPUTERNAME%.txt"

This allows for writing the history file to a shared location.

Setting "UseUniqueHistoryFiles=False" will remove the computer name from the file name.

Hi Scott, do you recommend everyone do this just to avoid potential issues?

It really depends on your needs.
