Cpanel Webalizer statistics without cpanel login


CPanel offers you the ability to check your website statistics with a program called webalizer. The problem with this system is that you are required to login via cpanel, and click through 2 diferent subsections in order to access them. This tutorial will guide you on the steps needed to make your webalizer statistics available via http://www.yoursite.com/stats/ .

Login to your hosting account via ssh. If you do not have ssh, ask your host to enable it. if they won’t enable it, ask them to read this tutorial, and run through these directions yourself.

Navigate to your public_html directory by running the following command

cd public_html

Once there, type the following:

vi .htaccess

once that loads, hit your i key, and type the following:

Options +FollowSymLinks

Once that is done, hit your Esc (escape) key, and type the following:

:wq

This will write to the .htaccess file, and quit.

Next, run the following command

ln -s ~/tmp/webalizer stats

you can replace the “stats” part of that command with name you want to use in order to access your website statistics.

After that, run the following commands

chmod 755 ~/tmp
chmod 755 ~/tmp/webalizer

now you can access http://www.yoursite.com/stats/ to access your webalizer statistics.

Enjoy
