Where do Web Traffic Stats come from?

    We currently are getting zero figures showing for our Web Traffic Stats.

    Just wondering if anyone knows where these come from, does ISP Config use the apache log files or do you have to have Webalizer/Awstats installed?

    The come from apache (vlogger).

    Which ispconfig version do you have installed?

    Thanks Till!,

    We're running with the caveat being that we are using Litespeed instead of Apache.

    I appreciate you don't support Litespeed but I'd like to see if we can get this aspect working. From what I understand it can log to the usual Apache log files.

    Perhaps you could guide me where to look on the filesystem in the first instance to find out whether the correct log files are being created?

    The traffic logging is not based on files. vlogger is a perl script and apache pipes the log output to vlogger and vlogger writes the traffic data directly to the mysql database.

    So what you have to do is to check if you configured vlogger properly in litespeed so that all log data is piped in the correct format to this script.

    Thanks again Till,

    I've found the option to pipe access logs in the Litespeed Web Admin, do you know the path I should be piping them to?

    Please see the ispconfig.conf file in the apache sites-available folder for the correct log and vlogger configuration.

    Thanks Till, it looks like Litespeed is automatically picking this up from the ispconfig.conf file. However, in the stderr.log I can see the following:

    2010-12-15 15:05:28.935 [STDERR] readline() on closed filehandle CONF at /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/vlogger line 232.
    2010-12-15 15:05:28.935 [STDERR] Use of uninitialized value $DBI_DUMP in alarm at /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/vlogger line 538 during global destruction.

    Any clues as to what might be the cause here?

    Hi All,

    This bug has been fixed in LiteSpeed's latest release, v4.0.18 (not yet available by automatic upgrade).

    So that's ISPConfig running Litespeed on Debian Lenny with full traffic stats :-D

    Thanks for your help.
