Got AWstats working

    Hi guys,

    I got AWstats running on a plesk 7 (i believe) server!

    Below my short manual:

    - install AWstats in a directory
    - the actual logs of vhostst are in:
    - test the first update with a Perl command on the command line (see below)
    - when you feel satisfied, add the following line to cronjobs in your server administration:
    /home/httpd/vhosts/***domainname***/httpdocs/AWstats-dir/awstats.pl -config=***domainname*** -update
    - set the cronjob to every other hour, you have stats per hour. When you set the job to 5 minutes, you'll almost have realtime statistics.
    (- notice the time the server rotates the logs itself. Run AWstats a minute before to make the loss of records from the access_log as less as possible. - the period of time between your update and the log rotation of the server is as minimalized as possible in this setting)

    Hope this one helps a lot of you guys with the seriously-not-so-pleasant-webalyzer-stats!

    Greetz from Holland!
