The Webalizer

The Webalizer The Webalizer is a fast, free web server log file analysis program. It produces highly detailed, easily configurable usage reports in HTML format, for viewing with a standard web browser.

To install The Webalizer connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH, and issue the command below:
    % vinstall webalizer
    % rehash
Running The Webalizer
You may run The Webalizer by doing the following. The -o flag and trailing directory name (/www/htdocs/stats/) designate where The Webalizer output will be written.

    % virtual webalizer -o /www/htdocs/stats/ /www/logs/access_log
To run The Webalizer daily at a scheduled time, add a line like the following to your Virtual Server Crontab (all on one line)
    35 0 * * * /usr/local/bin/virtual /usr/local/bin/webalizer -o /www/htdocs/stats/ /www/logs/access_log
This particular line will run The Webalizer each night at 12:35am and write the output in your ~/www/htdocs/stats/ directory.

The following will run The Webalizer for your subhosts. The entire section should appear on one line in your cronjobs file.
    35 0 * * * /usr/local/bin/virtual /usr/local/bin/webalizer-n SUBHOST-DOMAIN.NAME -o /www/vhosts/SUBHOST-DIR/htdocs/stats/ /www/vhosts/SUBHOST-DIR/logs/access_log
After you add an entry to your cronjobs file, rebuild the crontable:
    % crontab cronjobs

Manual pages are installed on your Virtual Server when you install The Webalizer. Use the man command to access them.
    % man webalizer
