Cronjob for Webalizer

Postby DeathGoth » 06. October 2004 06:09

I am fairly new to linux, however I set up a xampp server cause I used it for a year or so on windows and figured i would move it to a linux box just cause its more stable. anyway...

I am wondering how to set up a cronjob for webalizer in xampp.. I am not sure on how to do this or even remotely able to.. so anyway help would be great.

thanx

Hi,

enter on your shell:
crontab -e

then add this to your crontab:
15,30,45,00 * * * * /opt/lampp/bin/webalizer 2&>1

Exit and restart cron.
This will update webalizer every 15 mins.

So long

Hi,

if you use SuSE try:

rccron restart

any other Linux should do by doing a:

/etc/init.d/cron restart

I did that, and it gave me this message.

[root@localhost root]# /etc/init.d/cron restart
-bash: /etc/init.d/cron: No such file or directory


SO I am wondering if I did something wrong...

Hi,

no maybe not...

Try this:

/etc/init.d/cro +press Tab

This will complete. Some Linux Distributions call it crond
Others dont eben have init.d so maybe you telling us what Distribution you use will help?

btw. I always use /et + Tab -> /etc/ini + Tab -> /etc/init.d/cr + Tab -> /etc/init.d/cron

If you press Tab twice, it will show you the possibilities...

Try

/etc/init.d/crond restart

I'm sorry, I have never had a Redhat so I can't really tell you 100% what to do.

If everything fails (I hate having to say this), you can still reboot...

I found a bunch of folders that go like this.

with a cron for webalizer in it but its diffrent..

#! /bin/bash
# update access statistics for the web site

if [ -s /var/log/httpd/access_log ] ; then
/usr/bin/webalizer
fi

exit 0


anyway this is an image of the cron set up in linux.. I am thinking it goes in here.. but I am not sure how to set it up for a cron.. cause they look like they got lil gears on it..

maybe if we edit the code above for webilizer we can change it to work with xampps version.

You will still have to restart cron, so your not one step further than now ;)
you may also edit the file you found... but then webalizer will only update your stats every hour.

If you would like to change it, it would have to look like this:
Code: Select all
#! /bin/bash
# update access statistics for the web site

if [ -s /opt/lampp/logs/access_log ] ; then
    /opt/lampp/bin/webalizer
fi

exit 0
