Step 1. Download awstats from http://awstats.sourceforge.net
Step 2. Uncompress awstats-5.6.tgz
Step 3. Copy the contents of the uncompressed cgi-bin folder from your hard drive to the user cgi-bin directory (this includes awstats.pl, awstats.model.conf, and the lang, lib and plugins sub-directories).
Step 4. If necessary (should not be needed with most setups), edit the first (top-most) line of awstats.pl file that is #!/usr/bin/perl to reflect the path were your Perl interpreter is installed. Default value works for most of Unix OS, but it also might be #!/usr/local/bin/perl
Step 5. Move AWStats icon sub-directories and its content into a directory readable by your web server, for example /home/users/public_html/icons
Step 6. Copy awstats.model.conf file into a new file named awstats.myvirtualhostname.conf. This new file must be stored in /home/user/public_html/cgi-bin.
Step 7. Edit this new config file with your own setup: – Change LogFile value with full path of your web server log file (The path is: LogFile=”/usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.com”). – Check if LogFormat has the value “1″ (it means “NCSA apache combined/ELF/XLF log format”). – Change DirIcons parameter to reflect relative path of icon directory. (DirIcons=”/icons”) – Edit SiteDomain parameter with the main domain name or the intranet web server name used to reach the web site to analyze (Example: www.mydomain.com). IMPORTANT! – Change DirData to use the same Statics file than Cpanel Awstats and do not loose any entry. (DirData=”/home/user/tmp/awstats/”)
Step 8. Access AwStats by the URL: http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin/awstat…fig=domain.com
AwStats will refresh the Statics every 24 Hours.
