How do I display Awstats publicly in Linux Shared Hosting?

There is no direct way of displaying statistics of your domain on your website, you can use the below script to accomplish this:

<?php
$user = 'username'; //your cpanel username
$pass = 'password'; //your cpanel password
$domain = 'website.com'; //do not include 'http://' or 'www.'

/* NO NEED TO TOUCH ANYTHING BELOW HERE */

//retrieves the file, either .pl or .png
function getFile($fileQuery){
global $user, $pass, $domain;
return file_get_contents("http://$user:$pass@$domain:2082/".$fileQuery,'r');
}

//it's a .png file...
if(strpos($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'],'.png')!==false) {
$fileQuery = $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
}

//probably first time to access page...
elseif(empty($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])){
$fileQuery = "awstats.pl?config=$domain";
}

//otherwise, all other accesses
else {
$fileQuery = 'awstats.pl?'.$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
}

//now get the file
$file = getFile($fileQuery);

//check again to see if it was a .png file
//if it's not, replace the links
if(strpos($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'],'.png')===false) {
$file = str_replace('awstats.pl', basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), $file);
$file = str_replace('="/images','="'.basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']).'?images',$file);
}

//if it is a png, output appropriate header
else {
header("Content-type: image/png");
}

//output the file
echo $file;
?>

Note: This article is for the cPanel users only. This script requires that you save your cpanel username and password in the php file, which is a security risk. Thus, users are requested to use this script at their own risk. AccuWebHosting.com has not written this script, thus it will not provide any support for any issues arising out of the usage of this script.
