View Full Version : Installer needed on NIX box for SPAMASSASIN, stats program
11-08-2004, 10:36 PM
I am running my sites of a UNIX box with root level access, although a shared machine. I need an experienced freelancer to install SpamAssasin and some type of Statistics/traffic analizer (preferably freeware). Please post:
1. your estimate for the job and wether you work by the hour or flat rate.
2. Your software solution for the second part.
And any other pertinant info you think I should know.
Please post your responses and I'll e-mail you when I have made a decision.

BTW: the server is an Interland VPS Root package. Right now there are 8-10 domains on ther and I would like the Spam and Traffic software to span the multiple domains. So that will probaby affect what you need to do.

For statistics I dont think there are many better freeware solutions than awstats, you can see it in use showing the stats from the projects sourceforge page here -> http://awstats.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/awstats.pl
Do you have any sort of hosting control panel on the server, cpanel, directadmin etc? What os is the box running, redhat9, RHEL, centos etc?
If you have a cpanel then awstats should be installed, if you have directadmin then there is an awstats plugin that can be installed and each user can install it on their domain with a single click. Spamassassin can be installed from both panels.
If you dont have a control panel then you will have to install it as root and configure it seperately for each domain and everytime you add a domain thereafter.
Let me know what your setup is and I'll let you know what has to be done and how long it would take.

"any sort of hosting control panel on the server,"
There are some web based controls, a virtual admin page that allows me to install packages and stuff. I also have full access through TELNET - if you give me the command that would output the environment variables that you're looking for I'll post them here. But I don't remember what the command is...
I didn't see AWSTATs in the 'available packages' there so I guess that would need to be added by hand. That looks exactly like what I need.
"if you have directadmin then there is" - Is that something you can install to give me a better web control panel. and then I can handle spam assasin and awstats from there? Either way I figure I can learn to configure it, but I hate installing stuff.
