LinuxNovice.org: Web Server Statistics with Webalizer

Jul 29, 2000, 14:33 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Chris Moewes for this link. ]

"Webalizer is a free web server log analyzer. It provides very detailed traffic report that can help webmasters understand where their traffic is coming from and where it is going. Webalizer generates reports in both table format and graphical, making it a tool useful for system admins as well as business managers."

"As with most programs for Linux, you have several options for installing Webalizer. From the Webalizer's download page you can get the source code in tar/gz format, as well as precompiled binaries for different unixes and even DOS/Windows. Your other alternative, and possibly your easiest, is to download the RPM package (if you system supports RPM)."

"Webalizer is designed to be used with most any log file, but works out of the box with apache/ncsa style web log files... The primary configuration file for webalizer is located at /etc/webalizer-conf, however you can place this file anywhere you want and specify via the command line which file to use. I personally reccomend placing the webalizer configuration file in the same location as your apache config files for consistency."
