#4375 Webmin not detecting Webalizer version correctly


Webmin not allowind to enable webalizer, even latest webalizer is installed at debian 7 (newest).

Error shown: Failed to save enabled features : Webalizer does not appear to be installed on your system, or has not yet been set up properly in Webmin's Webalizer Logfile Analysis module. If your system does not use Webalizer, it should be disabled in Virtualmin's module configuration page.

Webmin's Webalizer Logfile Analysis module says: The Webalizer command /usr/bin/webalizer on your system is version ersion:, but this module only supports versions 2.0 and above.

Somereason it doesn't detect versionnumber of webalizer.

Operating system Debian Linux 7
Webmin version 1.675

    What do the following commands output on your system :

    webalizer -v
    webalizer -V

    webalizer -V

    Webalizer V2.23-05 (Linux 2.6.32-042stab083.2 x86_64) locale

    webalizer -v: generates summary reports, so maybe webmin goes crazy because of that and doesn't even try -V?

    Yes, I think webmin's use of -v is the problem. Since only really old webalizer versions used this flag, I will switch to only using -V in the next release.
