AWSTATS: Detailed Statistics for previous months? Please Help

    I am wondering if it was possible to get detailed statistics with AWSTATS for previous months, I mean id like to be able to switch to a previous month and examine the compelte AWSTATS info for the month.

    its only diplaying the detailed info for the current month at the moment, the only historic info available is the Montly History that only displays visits, hits, etc.

    check it out:


    any ideas?

    I'm also looking for an answer to the above question. When I used AWStats on a RAQ550 there was an option to list the full history not just that of the current month.

    Same problem here...

    I have the same problem...

    Could go back to webalizer, but would rather not.

    Does nobody from the plesk support team monitor this forum... is it a way of getting everybody to buy the email support. Please we dont expect answers right away, but it would be nice if they a least once a week looked in the Forum or included the answer in the manual... Instead of having to answer the same question for many different mails sent to the support team.

    Please If somebody know how to see stats from past month, let us know...

    Kind regards

    Plesk integration with AWstats is pointless.

    There are some benefits. The Plesk installer installs AWstats for you. It schedules log processing.
    It allows you to switch it on & off from the control panel.

    But integration actually STOPS you from doing the admin tasks you need to do.

    You cannot run dynamic AWstats necessary to view multiple months (See http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_setup.html)
    e.g. http://www.myserver.mydomain/awstats/awstats.pl?config=myvirtualhostname

    You cannot reprocess old logs (See http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_faq.html#OLDLOG)

    It may be possible get the URL query is included in stats, so that content.asp?page=page1 is different to content.asp?page=page2 (See http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_config.html#URLWithQueryWithOnlyFollowingParameters) – I haven’t worked out how yet - but Plesk makes it more difficult.

    There is an AWstats config file full of useful options but Plesk does not give you a Control Panel page to edit them e.g. See http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_config.html#SkipFiles and exclude webstats pages from the webstats with the setting:
    SkipFiles="REGEX[^\/webstat] "

    The only way to password protect stats is by setting folder properties, so users have yet another login to add to the Plesk login, FTP, mail login.

    And then you find that the Plesk 6.5=>7 upgrade has deleted your webstats history without warning, and left stats processing switched off on all domains. Yet again, Plesk promises much but gives you trouble.

    I'm hoping someone will tell me I'm wrong about all this. Meanwhile I have given up on Plesk/AWstats integration. I'm going to install it separately when I have time.

    When I upgraded to Plesk 7.6.1 it made the stats dynamic, and all the historical data was just there, going back years. However, it fails with an inadequate error message on domains that have PHP switched off, and the upgrade doesn't warn you that you now need PHP for AWstats.

    It appears from the article linked above that later 8.* version break it. What a surprise.
