Slutty web chat - Awstats not updating

- Review and change other parameters if appropriate. You can jump to the Process logs: Building/Updating statistics database section.

B) awstats_will then add, if not already present, the following directives to your Apache configuration file (note that the "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot" path might differ according to your distribution or OS: # # Directives to add to your Apache conf file to allow use of AWStats as a CGI.

# Note that path "/usr/local/awstats/" must reflect your AWStats Installation path.

B) Setup for Microsoft's IIS server Configure IIS to create logs in the "Extended W3C log format" (You can still use your own custom log format but setup is easier if you use the standard extended format).

To do so, start the IIS management console snap-in, select the appropriate web site and open its To be sure the log format change is effective, you must stop IIS, backup it up (if you desire) and remove all of the old log files, restart IIS and go to your homepage.

Enter an appropriate name such as that of your web server or the virtual domain to be analyzed, i.e. awstats_will create a new file called awstats.by copying the template file awstats.

The new file location is: - For Linux/BSD/Unix users: /etc/awstats.

# Alias /awstatsclasses "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/classes/" Alias /awstatscss "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/css/" Alias /awstatsicons "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/icon/" Script Alias /awstats/ "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/" # # This is to permit URL access to scripts/files in AWStats directory.

# C) if changes were made as indicated in parts A and B, awstats_restarts Apache to apply the changes.

This is an example of the type of records you should find in the new log file: Copy the contents of the AWStats provided cgi-bin folder, from where the AWStats package put it on your local hard drive, to your server's cgi-bin directory (this includes awstats.pl, awstats.model.conf, and the lang, lib and plugins sub-directories).

file to match your specific environment: - Change the Log File value to the full path of your web server log file (You can also use a relative path from your (cgi-bin) directory).

If you use a common log, awstats_will suggest changing it to the NCSA combined/XLF/ELF format (you can use your own custom log format but this predefined log format is often the best choice and makes setup easier).
