Hi

On one of my servers
the
/scripts/fixwebalizer*
is not working correctly.
Please see details below.

I only have the webalizer statistics set to run on this server.

This is a server wide issue

Server is running
CENTOS 6.4 x86_64 standard – host
WHM 11.42.1 (build 24)
Load Averages: 2.60 2.86 3.74

[email protected] [~]# /scripts/fixwebalizer*
Warning: this will destory all previous webalizer data!
Enter Username to fix webalizer for? XXXXXXX
removed `/home/ XXXXXXX/tmp/webalizer/webalizer.current'
removed `/home/ XXXXXXX/tmp/webalizer/webalizer.hist'
removed `/home/ XXXXXXX/tmp/webalizer/dns_cache.db'
Log checker loaded ok..
==> cPanel Log Daemon version 26.0
Logs are already being processed, please try again later.

web host manager says

Thanks in advance for your help

Hello :)

Could you let us know your reasoning for running the "/scripts/fixwebalizer" script? Are you having a specific issue with Webalizer?

Thank you.

Hi

Thanks for your help

Aside from the /scripts/fixwebalizer* - the webalizer works great

There a couple of reasons that I want to reset the webalizer.

1- on some sites - the webalizer hasn't worked since 2003
(these sites have been migrated from other servers)
and sometimes I want to get them working again on a particular site
for various reasons.

2- sometimes on sites with huge tmp files for the webalizer that a specific user doesn't need -
it usually works best to run /scripts/fixwebalizer* rather than deleting the tmp files manually

Thanks
Take Care
Audrey

You can check to see if there is any activity happening with cpanellogd by reviewing the stats_log:

Code:
tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/stats_log
Also, you can review the current cpanellogd action with a command such as:

Code:
ps aux|grep cpanellogd
You may want to wait for the existing activity to finish before proceeding.

Thank you.

Hi

I ran the commands to check that nothing is running.
Unless I am misreading the results-nothing appears to be running.

[email protected] [~]# tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/stats_log

[email protected] [~]#

After I ran the above commands- I tried the /scripts/fixwebalizer* script again.
Same results-
I got the
"Logs are already being processed, please try again later" message

What is strange- is that
1-one of the sites that I ran the script on-
(that hasn't worked since 2003) after I ran the /scripts/fixwebalizer* script and after I got the "Logs are already being processed, please try again later" message - the webalizer stats miraculously deleted all old webalizer files and started working again.
2- Another site that was working - after I ran the /scripts/fixwebalizer* script -it stopped working.
In both of the above cases, when I ran the /scripts/fixwebalizer* script -I got the
"Logs are already being processed, please try again later" message

Thanks again for your help.
Take Care
Audrey
