For Unix platforms: Edit the cron table so that mailnotify is called in an interval of your choice. Please consult man crontab of how to modify the table that schedules program execution at certain intervals. Example:
% crontab -e
Changed:

15,45 * * * * (cd ~twiki/public_html/bin; ./mailnotify -q)
>
>
0 2 * * * (cd /path/to/twiki/bin; ./mailnotify -q)

Changed:
<
<
The above line will call mailnotify at 15 minutes and 45 minutes past every hour. The -q switch suppresses all normal output.
>
>
The above line will run mailnotify nightly at 02:00. The -q switch suppresses all normal output.

For ISP installations: Many ISPs don't allow hosted accounts direct cron access, as it's often used for things that can heavily load the server. Workaround scripts are available.

On Windows NT/2000: You can use a scheduled task if you have administrative privileges. Note: AT on an NT machine is pretty limited. Microsoft lists several third-party

WebStatistics Site Usage Log

Line: 65 to 64

Configuring for Automatic Operation

  • You can automatically generate usage statistics for all webs. To enable this:
Changed:
<
<
    • Make sure variable $doLogTopicView, $doLogTopicSave and $doLogTopicUpload in TWiki.cfg are set. This will generate log entries in file twiki/data/log<date>.txt .
>
>
    • Make sure variable $doLogTopicView, $doLogTopicSave and $doLogTopicUpload in TWiki.cfg are set. This will generate log file entries (see below).

    • The WebStatistics topic must be present in all webs where you want to have statistics. You can use the topic in the Main web as a template.
    • Call the twiki/bin/statistics script from a cron job, once a day is recommended. This will update the WebStatistics topics in all webs.
Changed:

    • Attention: The script must run as the same user as the CGI scripts are running, which is user nobody on most systems. Example crontab entry:
      0 0 * * * (cd /path/to/TWiki/bin; ./statistics >/dev/null 2>&1)

      0 0 * * * (cd /path/to/TWiki/bin; ./statistics >/dev/null 2>&1)

    • There is a workaround in case you can't run the script as user nobody : Run the utility twiki/bin/geturl in your cron job and specify the URL of the twiki/bin/statistics script as a parameter. Example:
      0 0 * * * (cd /path/to/TWiki/bin; ./geturl mydomain.com /urlpath/to/TWiki/bin/statistics >/dev/null 2>&1)
