Some distributions like Arch have /usr/bin/python point to python3, not Python 2.x. Even more popular distributions are transitioning to do the same thing. Currently, the import-logs.py script does not work under Python 3. As such, either it should be updated to support Python 3, either its shebang line should be changed to #!/usr/bin/python2 instead of assuming that /usr/bin/python is Python 2.x.

sounds like a very good idea to make it python 3 compatible. Please send pull request if you manage this (btw is it possible to keep compatibility with Python 2.6?)

This issue blocks the use of the log-analytics script over HTTPS on Gandi, whose SNI config requires python 3.2+.

Since I don't want to expose my logs over a cleartext connection, that means I can't use the log-analytics script. :(

Here is what Gandi support told me:

But here is the problem. When executing the script import_log.py with python 3.2 a syntax error is returned as you can see it below:

$ ./import_logs.py --url=https://piwik.rimk.me/ ~/var/log/apache/access.log --debug

File "import_logs.py", line 562
except Piwik.Error, e:
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Hi @JMPorup AFAIK it's not possible for script to support both Python 2 and python 3 unfortunately, and we must support Python 2.x still

@toholdaquill

@mattab how much work is it to update the script to python 3? Perhaps fork the log-analytics script into log-analytics-python2 and log-analytics-python3 ?

@JMPorup no idea...

@toholdaquill

@mattab Would you please consider looking into it? This is a major showstopping bug for me, and no doubt for many others as well. As it is, Gandi no longer recommends Piwik to their users because of this bug!
