The language of the generated Webalizer statistics is statically compiled into the Webalizer binary. To change the language, Webalizer has to be recompiled. In the following example, I will recompile Webalizer to change the language to german.
Uninstall Webalizer and install the GD library:
apt-get remove webalizer apt-get install libgd2-xpm-dev
Download the latest Webalizer sources and uncompress the tar archive:
cd /tmp wget ftp://ftp.mrunix.net/pub/webalizer/webalizer-2.23-08-src.tgz tar xzf webalizer-2.23-08-src.tgz cd webalizer-2.23-08
Reconfigure and compile Webalizer:
./configure --with-language=german make make install
Create a symlink so that other applications find the Webalizer binary in the common place:
ln -s /usr/local/bin/webalizer /usr/bin/webalizer
rm -f /tmp/webalizer-2.23-08-src.tgz rm -rf /tmp/webalizer-2.23-08
