What is dglog

Dlog its a CGI log analyzer for the web content filter DansGuardian, which is being developed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). you need to have DansGuardian installed and working. Dglog2 will read the access.log log file from /var/log/dansguardian directory. You can use dglog to to have a basic analysis of the dansguardian log. Its very simple and basic, but its a good start.

Set up dglog on Alpine Linux

This document will be a very quick c/p guide to setup dglog on Alpine linux. What we will install is the following:

  • lighttpd
  • perl

Install http server and perl


apk add lighttpd perl

Configure lighttpd

Edit lighttpd.conf

nano +44 /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf

Uncomment line:

include "mod_cgi.conf"

Save and exit (Control X)

Installing dglog

Make the necesary directory

mkdir -p /var/www/localhost/htdocs/cgi-bin/dglog

cd /var/www/localhost/htdocs/cgi-bin/dglog


wget http://dansguardian.pl/pobierz/dglog2.pl -P /var/www/localhost/htdocs/cgi-bin/dglog

Edit the dglog2.pl file

nano +104 dglog2.pl

Uncomment and change

$cgipath = 'http://your.ip/cgi-bin/dglog/dglog2.pl';


$cgipath = $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME};


Starting http server and adding to boot

/etc/init.d/lighttpd start && rc-update add lighttpd default

Done! Now you can browse to http://your.ip/cgi-bin/dglog/dglog2.pl and check the DansGuardian log file.
