If you haven’t already:
# apt install goaccess
/etc/cron.daily/apache_report with the following contents
#!/bin/bash goaccess /var/log/apache2/other_vhosts_access.log --log-format=VCOMBINED -o report.html gzip report.html echo "Report" | mail -s "Apache Report" -A report.html.gz firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember to change the email address to your email address
Instead of waiting a day to find out if the script is working correctly, you can copy
/etc/cron.hourly and then
cd into it and run:
# run-parts .
If all went well, you should have a new email with a nicely formatted html report.
Remember to delete the script from
/etc/cron.hourly or you’ll have a full inbox!
Also, I’m assuming that you’re using virtual hosts in Apache. If not, you can reference
access.log instead of
