HowTo Install AWStats With Some PlugIns On A Server With ISPConfig 

HowTo install AWStats with some plugins on a server with ISPConfig: based and abutted to the instructions for installation of AWStats-installer of jnsc I wrote this HowTo for installations with some plugins.

Let me say first: This is one way of many possible, but I try this more than one time and it works.

You will need:

  • a Strato - Dedicatet Server
  • WinSCP3 and Putty or similar software on your computer at home

Anyway I must say to you, too => If you use this HowTo you do it on your own risk ! The AWStats-installer is in Beta-state ! If you have question mail me or send me a PM.

If you want to have it in german language please mail me, too.

Wer diese Anleitung auf deutsch haben möchte, muss mir nur eine eMail oder PN schreiben.

STEP 1 - Download and install AWStats

  • login your server as root by Putty
  • change directory and download the archive by copy and paste in Putty
cd /usr/src


  • now extract the archive, change to the directory and install it

tar -xvzf ISPConfig_awstats_pkg_beta-3.tar.gz

cd ISPConfig_awstats_pkg
  • now you can run AWStats to generate the first static-statistic-sites.
/root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php

STEP 2 - Download and install a geographic localizer for IP´s

cd /root
tar xzvf GeoIP.tar.gz
cd GeoIP-1.4.0
make check
make install
tar xzvf Geo-IP-1.27.tar.gz
cd Geo-IP-1.27
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install
perl -MCPAN -e shell
install Net::XWhois
  • now you have to change some settings in the AWStats configuration-file
  • open and edit the file /etc/awstats/awstats.shared.conf
Lang="de" (line 892 - "de" is an example)
ShowScreenSizeStats=1 (line 1021)
ShowMiscStats=anjdfrqwp (line 1041)
LoadPlugin="geoip GEOIP_STANDARD /root/GeoIP-1.4.0/data/GeoIP.dat"(Zeile 1289)

If you want to use AWStats in applicable extent, you have to copy the javascript to every site on your server and include the following line into your index:

<script language="javascript" src="/js/awstats_misc_tracker.js"></script>

<noscript><img src="/js/awstats_misc_tracker.js?nojs=y" height="0" width="0" border="0"style="display: none"></img></noscript>

You can find the javascript here: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/awstats-6.5/wwwroot/js

Run the AWStats-script to create the statistic-files

/root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php
