Two excellent resources for Urchin technical questions are the official Urchin FAQ and the Urchin help wiki.
Q: Can I import my Google AdWords cost data into Urchin?

Q: I have years of server logs sitting around. Will they be of any use to me if I use Urchin?
Q: Can I access Urchin remotely through my web browser without using something like Remote Desktop to have a virtual connection to the computer Urchin is installed on?
A: Urchin comes with a built-in version of Apache and you can also configure it to use IIS. So yes, you can configure Urchin and your web host to allow both http and https access to Urchin.
Q: Can I track Web 2.0 technologies like Flash and Ajax with Urchin?
A: Yes you can. It takes some additional work but you can follow the steps in the Downloads and Events portion of the Urchin help wiki. You can also make use of the newly introduced Event Tracking features.
Q: Why doesn’t the data in Urchin match what some of my other tools report?
A: Every tool has its own tracking policies and attribution system. 2 clicks in one system might only be one visit in another. A conversion attributed to source A in system 1 might be attributed to source B in system 2. The best way to deal with this is to have an in-depth understanding of how each tool works and how it goes about its data collection. Also keep in mind that you are looking for trends and actionable data, not doing verification of someone else’s data collection algorithms!
