webstats output in /statistics/webstat and not in /httpdocs/plesk-stat

    I am trying to make webalizer webstats visible to users with a browser. I thought that by checking both 'Web Statistics' and (accessible via password protected directory '/plesk-stat/') in the site setup area of a domain I would see output in the /plesk-stat folder off the relevant domains root. This is not the case at present with this folder remaining resolutely empty.

    There is a crontab job (one of many) at the server level which is: /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/statistics >/dev/null 2>&1
    Nothing at the domain level though

    This appears to generate output for each domain in /var/www/vhosts/sitename.com/statistics/webstat

    Nothing is being generated in
    /var/www/vhosts/sitename.com/httpdocs/plesk-stats where I would have expected it to go.

    Any help sorting this out much appreciated!

    The path to the webstats is an alias in the httpd.include when you have webstats enabled.

    To view the stats just type the domain in with the /webstat/ portion added to the url.

    So like this for the domain example.com


    Even though this directory doesn't exist in /httpdocs/ it will still show you the stats.

    I don't know why they mention the /plesk-stat/ folder in the control panel when it still uses the /webstat/ folder. I have to assume it was a change that they never got around to completing.

    Thanks notsostupidnic - obvious when you know ! I should have thought to try that. Very misleading of the control panel to say plesk-stat when setting up the site AND create such a folder which then remains empty!!
