Perhaps wiser eyes than my n00bie goggles can clarify this for me.

I'm trying to make logfile reading just a bit easier, so in reading I found the plugin urlalias. My goal was to make (as an example) IP read (in the logs and/or in AWStats): "John's office" or somesuch.

Am I understanding the functionality of this plugin to be more-or-less as decribed above?

Also, apart from uncommenting the LoadPlugin directive I have to create a file in DirData directory which contains the IP a tab, then the desired text. Must the text be escaped? in quotes? Is there any reasonable limit as to how many entries there can be in this file? (we think maybe 150 hosts, unlikely to be more)

Thank you most kindly for any suggestions and guidance you have time to provide.


Warm regards to all,

Hello Colin,

There is a misunderstanding. urlalias is for URL's (i.e. pages of your web site), not for IP addresses of visitors.

To achieve what you want, use


in your AWStats config file and create the file /path/to/dnscache.txt. This file must contain one address per row in this format (example) : John Rachida

Not sure that you can have spaces and special characters within the person's name, but you can try it.
