Strato Log Download is a small Perl script intended to download logfiles from Web accounts from Strato hosted sites.
The problem is that the normal download interface is interactive, and that only about six weeks are kept on the server. So without scripting, you're likely to lose valuable log information (at least I was unable and unwilling to remember to download the logfiles once every six weeks).
This script logs in via the SSL-encrypted web-interface and downloads the files without needing a web-browser (proxies are configurable via the https_proxy environment variable).
Note: For SSL support, you might need additional Perl modules since some distros don't include crypto stuff: either use IO::Socket::SSL or Net::SSL (in Crypt::SSLeay).
If an SSL module is missing, https access will not work.
Usage is very easy:
$ get-logfiles -p mypassword www.mysite.de > logfile.gz
What's New in This Release:
· Feature: a new logfile download protocol was necessary, because the web interface changed (thanks to J. Puchalla for telling me -- it would probably have gone unnoticed otherwise).
