More about : is a community-driven Certificate Authority that issues certificates to the public at large for free.

CAcert’s goal is to promote awareness and education on computer security through the use of encryption, specifically by providing cryptographic certificates. These certificates can be used to digitally sign and encrypt email, authenticate and authorize users connecting to websites and secure data transmission over the internet. Any application that supports the Secure Socket Layer Protocol (SSL or TLS) can make use of certificates signed by CAcert, as can any application that uses X.509 certificates, e.g. for encryption or code signing and document signatures.

If you want to have free certificates issued to you, join the CAcert Community .

If you want to use certificates issued by CAcert, read the CAcert Root Distribution License .This license applies to using the CAcert root keys .

So, now you can reach out to https version… dont be scared if you get that un-verified certificate, you can import the root certificate.

Apache server stats with small and useful bash script.

Just copy this script to your web-server cgi-bin directory and enjoy.

The script with show the common errors like 404 Error, Internal Server Error and others. It will show the User agent distribution using simple commands like grep, uniq, awk and so on.

You would need to change the tfile – which is temporary file and also the access.log path in the next line.

Just re-direct the output to some file with html extenstion. You could even put this in the cron which re-directs the output to some html in server document root.

sudo grep $(date '+%d/%b/%Y') /var/log/apache2/access.log >$tfile
thits=$(grep -c . $tfile)
echo "Content-type: text/html"
echo ""
echo "Report for $(date '+%d/%b/%Y')

Report for $(hostname) on $(date ‘+%d/%b/%Y’)


echo "Total hits :: $thits"
echo ""
echo "User agent distribution :: "
#awk -F" '{print $6}' $tfile  | sort | uniq -c | sort -fr

awk -F" '{print $6}' $tfile | sed 's/(([^;]+; [^;]+)[^)]*)/(1)/' |sort |uniq -c|sort -fr

echo "
User response code: "
awk 'BEGIN{
a[206]="Partial Content";
a[301]="Moved Permanently";
a[304]="Not Modified";
a[401]="Unauthorised (password required)";
a[404]="Not Found";
a[500]="Internal Server Error";
{print $9 " => "a[$9]""}' $tfile | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr

echo "
404 Error Summary::"
awk '($9 ~ /404/)' $tfile | awk '{print $9,$7}' | sort | uniq -c|sort -nr|head -5

echo "

awk '{print $1}' $tfile | grep -o "[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}" | sort -n | uniq -c | sort -nr|while read count ip
	name=$(echo $ip|/usr/bin/logresolve)
	printf "%5st%-15st%sn" $count $ip $name

# cat $tfile |grep -o "[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}" | sort -nr | uniq -c | sort -n

echo "

cat $tfile | awk -F" '{print $6}'| sort -n | uniq -c | sort -nr |head -5 

echo "
Top urls ::"
cat $tfile  | awk -F" '{print $2}'| sort -n | uniq -c | sort -nr |head -5

echo -n "

cat $tfile | awk '{ sum += $10 } END { if ( sum > 1024*1024) {print sum/(1024*1024)"Mb"}else if ( sum > 1024) {print sum/1024"Kb";}else print sum }'

echo -n "

cat $tfile  | awk '{ sum += $13 } END { print sum }'
# sed 's/.*GET (.*) HTTP.*/1/g' $tfile|awk -F/ '{if ( NF > 3 ) print $2"/"$3"/"$4; else print $2;}'|sort|uniq -c

Faster blog with stats removed

I was thinking of removing the statpress plugin for quite some time now, but did not have a good alternative. Today finally I managed to do this as I had few hours to spare. Now that this is done, you should not be getting the database error that some of you on IE were getting and also should have a nicer experience in terms of page load time.
