Need Help installing Webalizer :)




I’ve read in the Dreamhost Wiki how to install Webalizer but I don’t get it.

Whats this mean? tar -xvzf the Webalizer binary.

The rest of the instructions after this line I don’t really understand. Can someone who knows what they’re doing please, please post up some easy to read instructions for beginners :).

Or better still if the Dreamhost people are listening having Webalizer as a one click install would be nice :slight_smile: but its been given a difficulty rating of 5 in the suggestions section so I guess its not going to happen anytime soon.

Someone please help me install Webalizer, Analog is pap.

Many Thanks,



Please, someone help me. I’m desperate to install webalizer as soon as I can. :slight_smile:

Reference: “man tar” entered at command line prompt in shell:

tar - The GNU version of the tar archiving utility

tar -xvzf foo.tar.gz
extract gzipped foo.tar.gz

-x, --extract, --get
extract files from an archive

-v, --verbose
verbosely list files processed

-z, --gzip, --gunzip, --ungzip
filter the archive through gzip

the Webalizer binary = compressed tar file with executable version of Webalizer program

something like: webalizer.versionN.tar.gz

which you downloaded in previous step.
