    I made a little installer for AWStats, It's a first draft so do not use on a production server. I would like to have some feedback, so don't hesitate to post your questions.

    crontab problem

    I am having problems making it work.
    I have installed the package and it generats the /awstats folder and etc/awstats conf files, also the .passwd files...but no stats.
    I have installed awstats (apt-get install awstats) but i do not know what to add in crontab for awstat to generate the reports.
    Can you please help me?

    You do not need to install awstats by apt-get, because the installer copy the needed files to /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools

    Normally the script adds the cron automaticly, chek that you have
    0 4 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php &> /dev/null
    in your crontab (crontab -e)

    If you run /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php manually (which can be long) do you have an error message?

    I have runde manualy /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php and I do not get error..
    bot no stats also..
    in /awstats a index.php file gets generated
    mainframe:/var/www/ cat ./index.php
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    $dir = ".";

    if( $dh = opendir($dir)) {
    while (($file = readdir($dh)) !== false) {
    $pattern = 'awstats\..*\.[0-9]{4}-[0-9]{2}\.html';
    if (ereg($pattern, $file)) {
    echo "<a href=\"$file\">$file</a><br />";
    but when i try to see it in a browser is empty (the awstats folder does not contain file matching awstats\..*\.[0-9]{4}-[0-9]{2}\.html)
    the only files there are index.php and .htaccess
    I did not figure out from your scripts where is awstats called to generate the reports from the config files?

    I figured out the problem, it was my fault, I commented out one line in order to make a test and I forgot to remove the comment.

    Just edit line 172 of /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php and remove the leading // of this line (it begins with $message .= exec )

    vi +172 /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php
    I'm really sorry, I will release a new version wich removes this Bug.

    It works great - there are no bugs.... (until now :p )
    How can I change the language of awstats ?

    I think that it is interesting how to change the language:
    [B]Open File[/B]
    [B]Edit line 891[/B]
    put in here your country-code (listed in the lines above)
    a.e.: [I]Lang="de"[/I]
    [B]Save file and quit editor[/B]
    [B]restart the awstats-script with the command:[/B]
    /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php

    Nice to know that it works nice until now :)

    I was thinking about to set the language on a per user basis, maybe by looking what language is set in the ISPConfig DB.

    I understand this idea, but at my server this didn´t work right (language).

    ´cause of this I changed this one entry ;)

    It didn't work because I didn't implement it yet :)
    But maybe if I have a little bit more time, I will implement it.

    AWStats Installer on Mandriva

    I installed your package on Mandriva 2006, and had to adapt the scripts for the proper Apache configuration path, which is /etc/httpd/conf. I can send you the diffs if you want.

    The scripts run fine, .htaccess, .htpasswd and stat pages get created. I have just one remaining issue, which is an 403 Forbidden error on the resulting directory/pages. Any idea why this error would show up?

    Works fine now... forgot to edit out some cgi-bin directives from the Mandriva AWStats package...

    **update 2**
    One little problem to report: the color bars in the reports are nor colored...

    Thank you for the package! :)
