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:[email protected]$domain:2082/".$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;
?>
