Description of problem:
webalizer should not run by default
the admin should trigger something to enable it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install webalizer
Actual Results: webalizer is run
Expected Results: should run only once configured
# mkdir /var/www/html/usage to enable
if [ -s /var/log/httpd/access_log -a -d /var/www/html/usage] ; then
in webalizer.conf, make dir /var/www/usage and note that 'alias /usage
/var/www/usage' must be added to httpd.conf
I myself normally wouldn't normally install webalizer, but I have a 'build
machine' where everything is installed. This is how I noticed it.
Many people might be doing a full install or other option that installs this,
not realizing they are revealing to the whole world their stats.
marking as 'security', but 'enhancement' might be better.
i added a function in /etc/cron.daily/00webalizer to check RUN enviroment.
It's enable as default for compatibility. In your case you should add RUN=no
into /etc/sysconfig/webalizer/ to disable it.
