    I am trying to make webalizer run once every hour by placing an entry in my
    crontab. I edit my crontab by typing

    crontab -e

    then add the following line

    0 * * * * root /usr/local/bin/webalizer

    but Webalizer does not update the stats, so I tried

    0 * * * * root /usr/local/bin/webalizer | mail allan

    to ensure that it was attempting and every hour. I get a blank mail, but
    webalizer still doesnt update the stats.
    Does anybody know what I`m doing wrong?

    This line is illegally formatted. The "root" is incorrect.
    Not surprising.
    Yes. You do.
