What is Webalizer?

The Webalizer is a web server log file analysis program which produces usage statistics in HTML format for viewing with a browser. The results are presented in both columnar and graphical format, which facilitates interpretation. Yearly, monthly, daily and hourly usage statistics are presented, along with the ability to display usage by site, URL, referrer, user agent (browser) and country.

Can I have my Webalizer output generated for me automatically?

Panix will add corp-web users to our monthly Webalizer cron run on request.
Individual users must set up their own cron jobs (cron access is available on request).

How do I use Webalizer?
Cheap-web users and those with pages in the www.panix.com domain should do the following:
  1. From your shell account, go to your webalizer space:
    cd ~/public_html/webalizer
    If the webalizer directory does not exist, you can create it:
    mkdir webalizer
    chmod 755 webalizer
  2. Generate the raw logs:
    getclogs > logfile
    or for last month's logs:
    getclogs -o > logfile
    This produces the data that Webalizer will use to generate tables and graphs.
  3. For a fairly generic Webalizer page:
    webalizer -n www.yourdomain.com logfile
    If you don't use a domain of your own, use www.panix.com/~.

You'll then be able to view your Webalizer stats at either http(s)://www.yourdomain.com/webalizer or (if you don't have a domain) https://www.panix.com/~YourUserName/webalizer.

You may want to restrict who can view your stats. An easy way to do this is to password-protect it via an .htaccess file. We explain how to do so at /help/security.html#htaccess.

For detailed information on Webalizer's options, run man webalizer from a Unix prompt.
