## httpd.conf -- Apache HTTP server configuration file

# Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
# This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://www.apache.org/docs/> for detailed information about
# the directives.
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
# After this file is processed, the server will look for and process
# /usr/local/apache/conf/srm.conf and then /usr/local/apache/conf/access.conf
# unless you have overridden these with ResourceConfig and/or
# AccessConfig directives here.
# The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
# 1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
# whole (the 'global environment').
# 2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
# which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
# These directives also provide default values for the settings
# of all virtual hosts.
# 3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
# different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
# same Apache server process.
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/local/apache/logs/foo.log".

### Section 1: Global Environment
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
# can find its configuration files.

I can't see any record anyhow related with a webalizer Smilie

by the way
I can generate the report by usung:
webalizer -c webalizer.conf -N 10 -D dns_cache.db /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log

webalizer -o /usr/home/sitename/public_html/statistic -D dns_cache.db /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log
but after that everything is going as it used to be (same ROOT messages)

Thank you

Apache itself has nothing to do with webalizer per se.

I was pointing this out because I thought you also wanted
to know how to configure apache Smilie

Anyway, the first thing you should do is find webalizer...

find / -name webalizer -print

...next, check root's cron file; as root do...

crontab -l

...this will list out the cron job file for root which is where the
emails (about webalizer errors) are comming from.
Post that output as well so we can go over the specific
entry. I'm assuming that webalizer may be complaining that
it cannot find the apache access log at: /var/log/httpd-access.log
You should also do...

fins / -name httpd-access.log -print

...to find exactly where that file is. You can then edit the cron
job file by, as root do...

crontab -e

...and change the /var/log/httpd-access.log in the webalizer line
to the correct location.

Don't worry, we'll get there Smilie

webalizer is located in (/usr/local/bin/webalizer)

virt1-180# crontab -l
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
# (/tmp/crontab.UmVd7L2XUU installed on Fri Aug 31 14:17:22 2001)
# (Cron version -- $FreeBSD: src/usr.sbin/cron/crontab/crontab.c,v 2000/12/11 01:03:31 obrien Exp $)
1 * * * * webalizer -pQ -o /usr/local/share/doc/apache/webalizer /var/log/httpd-access.log
virt1-180# find / -name httpd-access.log -print
virt1-180# crontab -e

1 * * * * webalizer -pQ -o /usr/local/share/doc/apache/webalizer /var/log/httpd-access.log
Sorry for the dumb question.
But I have problems to eddit this line Smilie
Do I have to run some special command ?

Sorry about that...

I should have been more concise about the "crontab -e" stuff.
This command will bring up the crontab file in vi for editing.
If you are not familiar with vi then I would suggest another
method (a later post). However, for now just get out of that
by doing...


Essentially, you only do that to actually edit the crontab file.
Before we do that, I wanted to "see" what was in it and
also find out the exact location of the log file.

It appears that /var/log/httpd-access.log is actually there
as verified by...

virt1-180# find / -name httpd-access.log -print

...since I'm not a "webalizer" guru, I'm going to have to read
through (the very sparse) documentation but I suspect that
there is somthing wrong with the first parameter...

-o /usr/local/share/doc/apache/webalizer

...I will get back with more info.

Thank youSmilie

by the way
Are you a sendmail guru ?
If yes, than I have a few more questions Smilie

Old 11-17-2001
According the the webalizer docs I have found
at: http://tvcnet.com/services/webalizer/readme.txt
the "-o" option specifies an output directory...

-o dir This options specifies the output directory for the reports.
If not specified here or in a configuration file, the current
default directory will be used for output.
Config file keyword: OutputDir

...so you need to verify if the directory
exists. You can do this by...

cd /usr/local/share/doc/apache/webalizer


cd /usr/local/share/doc/apache
ls -l

...and you should see a webalizer directory...

drwxr-xr-x 2 root 1024 Oct 10 2001 webalizer

...or somthing like that. Can you verify this?

On the question of sendmail, if you search this
forum for "sendmail", you will find several
threads which may have answers for you. Otherwise,
you should start a new thread. I personally only
"hack" around with sendmail. There are others
with considerably more knowledge on that. Smilie
