Need Help installing Webalizer :)

#1

Hello,

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,

Obebogie.

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


NAME
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.
