Webalizer help - analysis stopped 2 months ago


I've turned up nothing in the webalizer docs and in a Google search.

I just checked my Webalizer analysis of my Apache2 logs last night. The logs went up to August 31st (now October 11th) and stopped there. I checked over the webalizer config, apache logs, etc. and everything seems right. When I try running webalizer from the command line, it runs, but ends with something saying that all records were ignored, i.e. 7068 records (7068 ignored). I also tried running with the -i option, but got the same thing.

As far as I can tell, my apache logs are in standard combined format, and I haven't changed the format in many months.

I'm running webalizer 2.01 installed from RPM on an openSuSE 10.2 box. Apache is 2.2.3 with all logs going to /var/log/apache2/access_log which is automatically rotated to tar/gzip archives.

My webalizer.conf (minus comments and whitespace) is:

LogFile /var/log/apache2/access_log
OutputDir /srv/www/htdocs/admin/webalizer
PageType htm*
PageType cgi
PageType php
DNSCache dns_cache.db
DNSChildren 10

AllUsers yes

(plus a whole bunch of Ignore directives).

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Is there a log file you can look at manually?

I've found this to be quite strange, but as far as I can tell, there is no log file generated by webalizer.

The Apache log files are there, and quite full.

If I run webalizer from the command line with flags i (ignore history) and d (debug output) on /var/log/apache2/access_log, I get a whole bunch of DNS query stuff and some messages. Removing the DNS query info leaves:

Webalizer V2.01-10 (Linux English
Using logfile /var/log/apache2/access_log (clf)

51 addresses in 553.00 seconds
Using DNS cache file dns_cache.db
Creating output in /srv/www/htdocs/admin/webalizer
Hostname for reports is 'WEB1'
Ignoring previous history...
9454 records (9454 ignored) in 134.50 seconds, 70/sec
