gpl, config issue with virtualmin and webalizer

Hello! I am using Fedora Core 4 x86_64, fully updated. I upgraded webmin to the most recent version, installed the most recent version of virtualmin from the webmin modules box, and get the following error upon testing the virtualmin install:

>The status of your system is being checked to ensure that >all enabled features are available, that the mail server is >properly configurated, and that quotas are active .. > > Mail server Sendmail is installed and configured. > > Apache is installed. > > In Webalizer's global configuration, the Webalizer >incremental file is set to an absolute path. Use the]Webalizer module to change it to a relative path, like just >webalizer.current. > >.. your system is not ready for use by Virtualmin.

sooooo, in Webalizer, I clicked on "Edit Global Options" and found the line for Webalizer Incremental File and it's already set to:


which seems to be what the config checker wanted. Any ideas on what I've done wrong?

Hi David

Virtualmin requires the paths in webalizer config to be relative, not absolute as you currently have it set. This is so each virtual domain can have its own webalizer.current and webalizer.hist file

So in webalizer global options set the following

Webalizer history file: webalizer.hist
Webalizer incremental file: webalizer.current
Webalizer DNS cache file: /var/lib/webalizer/dns_cache.db

The dns cache file can be shared between all domains so that gets an absolute path

Thank you! I didn't know the difference between a relative vs. absolute path... now I do. I removed the path from in front of the file name and that solved it.
