How to Reset Webalizer

Posted by Paul Farrow - Under: Software

Looking at my hosting site I noticed there is quite a lot of traffic looking for how to reset the open source project webalizer so here is what I do to reset it.

Basically under Fedora the webalizer package is installed in /var/lib/webalizer, and in there (if you have run it already) will be two files webalizer.current and webalizer.hist you will need to delete both of them for it to reset itself. 

The webalizer.current documents the last known position so it doesnt go back over the same stats when it runs and the webalizer.hist file actually holds the statistics.
