It uses a partial information file to be able to process large log files often and quickly.It supports most web server log file formats including Apache, IIS and many other web server log formats. I also followed this link I dont really know where to distribute the files on the system. Distributor ID: Debian Description: Debian GNU/Linux 7.5 (wheezy) Release: 7.5 Codename: wheezy Thank you so much! I just removed the old version, and I installed the new version manually to /usr/local/awstats.
AWStats is a very useful tool that can give you an overview of what is happening on your website and assist with site analysis. Feel free to comment below if you have any questions.
I installed and configured awstats as per Webfaction documentation, and the awstats page loads but it continued to say "Never updated (See 'Build/Update' on awstats_page)" after two days of patiently waiting.
This will allow you to view your site and make updates without affecting the daily statistics.
Sometimes AWStats will miss some days in calculating stats for your site, and that leaves a big hole in your records. I reinstalled some software on our AWStats machine, and forgot to reinstall cron.
This article will help you to install and configure AWStats on Ubuntu.
The output will look something like this: Next, you need to configure Apache2 to show these stats.
If you have a lot of websites in a single c Panel, we recommend using Google Analytics or another third-party statistics solution as an alternative.
You can specify an IP address which you do not want logged in AWStats to keep your own page visits from being counted.
Cron is the absolutely necessary tool for getting the server to run things on a timed schedule.
