Re: [webalizer] Problems with Truncating oversized referrer

have 'Webmin' installed and able to access the server
via local area network.
I'm not sure if it's able to complete the full

it fits your needs. It's a great way to control the

As far as the binary compiling of Webalizer, you can
directly edit the 'webalizer.conf', and keep a backup
copy of it so all you have to do is make the necessary
changes, then upload it to the directory you have
listed for the conf file.
I have backup copies of all necessary conf files on my
regular computer that I use in case I happen to do
something and screwup the regular conf file.
You may even be able to adjust the Webalizer Module on
Webmin to assist you in making changes to the
'webalizer.conf'. It may take some manual configuring
of the CGI to handle the updated version of the
Anyway... Just some thoughts...

builds everything by source. So if I needed upgrade webalizer I just
emerge -u webalizer
Now I will have to interrupt that process or tweak and package sources
