    Webalizer not showing Country

    I have a very peculiar problem with my Webalizer Stats.

    The COUNTRY is not displayed for almost all domains under Webalizer. It used to work initially but not from November 2003.

    I contacted the Cpanel Staff and they said, I need to "enable Hostnamelookups within the apache configuration and then it will process the countries from the time it is enabled"

    My Question is, If i enable this, what are the consequences and why was it working initially and why not now?

    Any advice ?

    Go on, have a guess
    No idea why it would have stopped working.

    If you enable hostnamelookups in Apache there is an inevitable performance hit as Apache has to do a DNS lookups for every IP address connecting to it. However, IMX, it doesn't increase the load appreciably.

    The alternative would be to enable AwStats and use those (you enable DNS lookups for that in WHM under Tweak Settings).
