Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the supermarket mailing list.

chef_cookbook-awstats Build Status


This cookbook installs awstats and provides an LWRP to setup awstats for a service of your choice.


Currently only Debian 6+ (and probably Ubuntu) is supported.

Depends on * apache2 * htpasswd




Those are the attributes that can be configured with the LWRP. For more detailed explanations consult the awstats log file under templates/default or the official documentation.

<table> <thead> <tr> <th>Attribute</th> <th>Description</th> <th>Default Value</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>domain_name</td> <td> <b>Name attribute:</b>The domain name to be processed by awstats </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>log_location</td> <td> The directory containing the webserver's log files for the domain. </td> <td><code>/var/log/apache2/access.log</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>log_type</td> <td> Type of log.

recipe[awstats] makes sure to install the latest awstats package on your distribution. The LWRP can then be used to configure domain-specific statistics.

You then can enable awstats statistics and a proper htpasswd in your application-specific cookbook like this:

awstats_domain_statistics '' do
  log_location '/var/log/apache2/'

htpasswd '/etc/apache2/htpasswd_awstats' do
  user 'fooforge'
  password 'egrofoof'


Pull requests are very welcome! Make sure your patches are well tested. Ideally create a topic branch for every separate change you make.
