conf" by AWStats version 7.0 (build dfsg-5) From data in log file ...(etc etc etc) What I see instead: Error: Log File parameter is not defined in config/domain file Setup ('equius.mozai.com' file, web server or permissions) may be wrong.Auto Configuration From the tutorials that I found elsewhere in my searching there is a awstats_file that will try to configure it for you.
I had previously been using statcounter, a free stat service, but I had noticed that it was one of the causes of slowdown on my page loads.
I also run the server so I have full access to the server logs, why not just use those directly. It appears to be running properly and pulling in a lot more data than statcounter ever did.
However, please move it to the answer section below, and then accept it when you can with the tick (I think you have to wait 24 hours).
It's totally okay to answer your own questions! Solution Here is the problem : There is a awstats jobs setup on /etc/cron.d which is run with www-data.
