This is a simple guide on how to install Webalizer on a Debian system equipped with Apache. This should work for every version of every three elements (Debian, Apache and Webalizer) all together. Webalizer is a statistics application which analyses the Apache logs (in /var/log/apache) and makes a graphical output in web format, using the libgd libraries. Please note that we, at BeezNest, tend now to prefer AWStats to Webalizer because we feel it is better in every aspect. To install Webalizer:
# apt-get install webalizerThe version tested asks for libgd2 to be installed. The configuration of Webalizer is pretty easy for a totally clean system. You are just asked two questions:
- where will Webalizer keep its data? (default: /var/www/webalizer)
- what title will the output page display? (defaults to something common)
- No valid records found!
