awstats error "DirData" not found or not writable

    Installed rpm awstats-6.4-1.noarch.rpm
    on plesk 7.54 FedoraCore2

    Used the installation guide from a thread here on forum.
    All went Ok ..except on attempt to do first Update.

    Get error message :
    AWStats database directory define in config file by 'DIRData' parameter (/var/lib/awstats) does not exist or is not writable.

    The error is correct, that file doesn't exist.

    Checked the II. Process logs: Building/updating statistics database

    Seems to indicate that it should be automatically created when the update command is executed....but doesn't happen.

    Should I/ Can I - manually create the database file?

    Any advice appreciated.
