I would like webalizer for each of my domains (each of which uses a different Static/CGI application).

Do I need to create a different webalizer application for each domain or can I reuse the same webalizer application in different website records?

Whatever the answer, it would be good to update the WebFaction dox at:

https://docs.webfaction.com/software/webstats.html

answers that question for AWStats but not for Webalizer.

I've never tested this myself, so I've set it up and report back to you in 24-48hrs with the results.

Here's a datapoint: I have had a webalizer application pointed to about 20 websites for 3 days now and the HTML there still says "Webstats coming soon." I'm not sure if that's because I used multiple domains or because of some other problem.

Okay then, can you please open a ticket so we can look further into this?

Will do. Thanks.

Just following up after my support ticket, to help other users.

It appears that YES you must have a different Webalizer application for each domain (even though Webalizer applications don't require you to type in the domain to be monitored).

At least, when I tried having multiple domains on one Webalizer app and waiting 2-3 days, no reports were generated, but when I split into different apps, reports were generated after 24 hours (still could have been something else causing the problem at first but this seems like a plausible explanation).

We should definitely update the dox at:

https://docs.webfaction.com/software/webstats.html

and I will submit a ticket to update the dox.
