ok, im terrible in waiting
did some more digging and found the cronjob being executed so i just executed the command at the commandline
/usr/bin/php -q /usr/local/ispconfig/server/cron_daily.php
now for the first time i saw content inside /web/stats folder and was able to see the site specific stats! yee
For one of the sites there was an error. This is the only website i configured with the isp3 panel to use awstats. any suggestions on that error? or should i just be happy and use the webaliser stats?
