Ubuntu and Webalizer

This is why I continue to add to this blog (my work journal.) A month or more ago I installed Webalizer on my development machine because random IP addresses from Romania, France, Poland, Russia, China and every country in between were hitting my machine. I went through the normal process (i.e., google, google, google) and, in no time, I had installed software that analyzes the server logs - Webalizer. I went back to my development machine today and decided to rerun a few of the reports and forget how. In fact, for a time I even forget which program I installed. Was it Webalizer or LogWatch?

It was Webalizer. And here are the commands I need to remember:

The most basic report:
$ sudo webalizer -o stats /var/log/apache2/access.log

This breaks:
$ sudo webalizer -o stats /var/log/apache2/error.log

$ sudo webalizer -F CLF -o stats /var/log/apache2/error.log

$ sudo webalizer -F IIS -o stats /var/log/apache2/error.log

FAQs

Tutorial

Actions:

Comparing the March to April reports, I have gone from 16 to 5 IPs hitting my dev site. Of the five, I know 3 of the IPs. I'm blocking the other two via the firewall:

$ sudo ufw deny from [ip-address]

This may be an amateurish way of securing a server but it seems to work as anomalies in my log files have dropped considerably. Bam.
