/etc/cron.daily/webalizer: webalizer daily maintenance script

Written by Remco van de Meent remco@debian.org

WEBALIZER_BIN=/usr/bin/webalizer WEBALIZER_CONF=/etc/webalizer.conf WEBALIZER_DNS=/var/lib/dns_cache.db

See if the webalizer binary and config file exists

if not, exit without warning to prevent daily mails

[ -f ${WEBALIZER_BIN} ] || exit 0 [ -f ${WEBALIZER_CONF} ] || exit 0

Figure out non-rotated logfile

nonrotatedlog=egrep '^LogFile' $WEBALIZER_CONF | \ sed -e 's/[[:space:]]\+/ /' | \ cut -d ' ' -f2 | \ sed -e 's/\.[[:digit:]][\.gz]*$//'

Can we read it?

[ -r “${nonrotatedlog}” ] || exit 0

Check for empty logfile

logsz=echo ${nonrotatedlog} | \ sed -e 's/[[:space:]]\+/ /' | \ cut -d ' ' -f2 | \ xargs ls -l | \ sed -e 's/[[:space:]]\+/ /g' | \ cut -d ' ' -f5 [ $logsz -gt 0 ] || exit 0

Run webalizer quietly


Exit with webalizer’s exit code

exit $? </code>
