This is a small Ansible playbook to deploy the GoAccess log analyzer on Debianbased systems. Next to Piwik, I use goaccess myself to get better insights inwho and what visits my servers. This role is ment to be included in yourwebserver playbooks.
The role can be found here in my github account:https://github.com/RaymiiOrg/ansible/tree/master/goaccess.
It requires little change. It adds the goaccess apt-key. (Not with the apt-keymodule because that failed for unknown reasons). It installs goaccess and
zcat), deploys a config file and adds a hourly cronjob to parsethe latest log file. You might need to change the logfile path. There is also anightly cronjob which uses
zcat to parse all (rotated) logs into a big report.
