Customer has an associate which needs to access the AwStats data, but should not have other privileges on the cPanel account.

Could an external access method be allowed for the allowed associate to log in and view the stats information?

This topic has come up in the past, here's one such thread.
View AWStats without logging into cPanel

With those details in mind, if this user needs access for a one time sort of thing, it is possible to open Awstats main page, and then save that page as awstats.html (complete) to your desktop. Then just send him that file as an alternative.


HTH!

This method works fine:

Access Awstats without logging into cPanel

Problem

Allowing access to Awstats without requiring a cPanel login

Solution

Download Awstats: AWStats - Free log file analyzer for advanced statistics (GNU GPL).
Extract the contents of the file to your computer.

Use an FTP client to upload the contents of the /cgi-bin and /icon folders into the root of your domain (both are located in the "wwwroot" folder).

Change the permissions of the awredir.pl and awstats.pl files to 755 (in the /cgi-bin directory).

Download the Awstats configuration file created by cPanel: /tmp/awstats/awstats.yourdomain.com.conf.

Open this file with a text editor, search for the "DirIcons" line, and change it to show: DirIcons="/icon/".

Upload the modified file to the /cgi-bin folder.

You may now access your statistics at http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=yourdomain.com

Note: Please password protect the /cgi-bin folder so that only authorized users can access it (found under cPanel -> Security -> Password Protect Directories).

Bluehost Suggests creating a subdomain such as stats.yourdomain.com and redirecting it to the above URL to make it easy to access, its also possible to alter the directory name where the icons are loaded, but make sure the folder path is defined properly in the .conf file or the icons will not work properly.
