#966 Invalid log file : ...


I must admit I do not really know how to use webalizer.
However, I just took the default configuration of
webmin to manage webalizer. Just verified that webmin
found the correct paths. I have apache and squid on the
machine and so, there are three logs being monitored.

I just changed one parameter for squid.log :
"Write report to directory".

For this Parameter, I put the value
"/var/www/html/stats/". This directory exists and
should be writable by root (under which webalizer runs
by default).

Then I clicked "Generate report" and it seemed to work
(except a lot of truncated lines, but I think it is
normal). Then I tried to view the report and I get the
error "Invalid log file : var".

The URL that gave me this is :


Apparently webmin does not interpret correctly the %2F.

Replacing the parameter explained above with /etc/...
gave me the error "Invalid log file : etc".

    What is the URL of the page that the error actually occurs on?
    Also, which browser are you using?
    I haven't been able to re-produce this bug myself yet ..

    I forgot to mention that I'm using webalizer through a "webmin
    proxied" connection : I use the "webmin servers". The
    complete URL is :


    (X.X.X.X is a valid IP adress)

    It is not a browser problem as I got this error using IE5.0 or
    Netscape 7.0.

    The Webmin Servers module is the true cause of the problem
    .. it will be fixed in the next (1.070) release to solve it.
    Thanks for the bug report!
