By default for logs rotation, ISPmanager 6 uses the logrotate utility.
You need to activate rotation for each web-domain in its edit form. Click "Show hidden fields" for flexible configuration of logs rotation.
logrotate starts every day in /etc/cron.daily/logrotate . The configuration file is located in
Logs rotation settings for each web-domain are located in
By default the following logs settings are active (contents of /etc/logrotate.d/web/domain.com)
#The first line is a template of log-files.
olddir /var/www/user/data/logs #Locate archived files into specified directory
copytruncate #Create a copy of the original log-file and then reset it. Thus the file won't be deleted.
compress #Archive files (gzip is used by default)
monthly #Rotate once a day/week/month
prerotate #Similar to postrotate, but the operations will be performed before archiving
/etc/webanalyzer.d/user/domain.com #Analyze logs
Start rotation manually
/usr/sbin/logrotate -d -f <path_to_config_of_required_web_domain>
-d — detailed information -f — rotate in any case (for example, even if logs were rotated today) Example: if you need to rotate logs only for domain.com , the command will look like /usr/sbin/logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.d/web/domain.com
- the log does not need rotating
Cause — logs have already been rotated. You can modify status in the file
Or delete this file, but you will have to start rotation for all logs again
/usr/sbin/logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.conf
Logs on control panels v5 are rotated by the built-in mechanism once their size reaches 100 MB
ISPmanager 6 supports:
To install a log analyzer, go to ISPmanager — Settings--- Software.
You need to activate analyzer for each web-domain in its edit form. Click "Show hidden fields" for flexible configuration of logs rotation.
Once logs analyzer for the web domain domain.com is activated, the configuration file with rules will be created. Normally it is located in
The followings are specified in the file
LogFile="/var/www/httpd-logs/dasha.com.access.log" #location of log for analysis
SiteDomain="dasha.com" #site for analysis
DirData="/var/www/user/data/www/dasha.com/webstat/" #location of statistics after analysis
You can view statistics per web-domain in ISPmanager — Web domains--- select a required domain — click "Statistics".
Execute the following command for collecting statistics manually
/usr/bin/perl /usr/lib/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -update -config=domain.com
When statistics collection starts
- If the period is set to "during rotation", the analyzer will start by logrotate.
The directive prerotate that starts the log analyzer will be added into the configuration file /etc/logrotate.d/web/<domain.name>
- If the period is set to "every hour", the statistics collection script will be added into user cron
# crontab -u username -l MAILTO=""# #ISPmanager log rotate domain.name 0 * * /etc/webanalyzer.d/username/domain.name
Possible issues with statistics collection
- Statistics show only one unique visitor.
This may happen in case Nginx + Apache are installed. Solution — install mod_rpaf for Apache.
- Statistics show zero
Make sure that the following line in the AWStats configuration file for the domain (/etc/awstats/awstats.domain.com.conf) is specified
You also make sure log format is combined in the Apache configuration file
CustomLog /var/www/httpd-logs/domain.access.log combined
- How to exclude my IP address from statistics?
Edit the configuration file /etc/awstats/awstats.domain.com.conf .
