awstats ?

#1
Hello,

Does awstats come with WHM/cPanel VPS ? When I check "Stats Log Configuration" it mentions awstats long with webalizer and and analog but they all have a red cross. When I check in "Web/FTP Stats" webalizer is there bit no awstats.

Also, I have a couple of hosting customers asking me how can they tell what real hits they have had on their sites. Is there an easy way to view this figure as I am assuming that the large number of hits includes bots and crawlers ?

Thanks

Dave,

AWstats is installed but disabled by default. You can enable AWstats on the WHM >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings screen and then set defaults/configuration permissions on the WHM >> Server Configuration >> Statistics Software Configuration screen.

Regards,
Paul

Paul,

Is there a reason it is disabled by default? Any downside to enabling it?

Also, for Webalizer/Analog, is there some special URL that is public, and not password protected?

Hey Kaitlyn,

By default, no, you can't view the stats publically.

Here is how you can view the webalizer stats publically, straight from the cPanel site:

cd /home/username/www
ln -s ../tmp/webalizer stats
chown username.username stats
cd ../tmp
chmod 755 ./
chmod 755 ./webalizer
----------------
will allow domain.com/stats/ for viewing stats without logging in to cpanel
