WHM News in CPanel says....

Awstats now ready for use. Awstats must be turned on in /var/cpanel/cpanel.config before it will appear in your users cPanel. This makes use of the new &cpanelif& tag. (4.7.0 build 25 or later only)

I have 4.7.0 build 30. How exactly do I turn this on in cpanel.config? Right now, it shows the following...

#config ---------------------------------------
product=Cpanel
myname=cpaneld
adminuser=cpanel
basename=cpanel
version=4.7
root=/usr/local/cpanel
engineroot=/usr/local/cpanel
engine=cpanel
enginepl=cpanel.pl
cycle=1
docroot=/usr/local/cpanel/base
access_log=/usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log
stats_log=/usr/local/cpanel/logs/stats_log
port=2082
RS=default
VALIASDIR=/etc/valiases
VFILTERDIR=/etc/vfilters
#config ---------------------------------------
extracpus=0
skipawstats=1

I see where it says &skipawstats=1&. What should I do here?

Yes changing it to 0 will turn it on. However I think you need to run upcp for it to create the config files.

I changed to skipawstats=0 and ran /scripts/upcp but it does not work correctly.

I see the link now to it in the iconic theme but the page is not found error comes up when it tries to go to /stats/awstats.html becuase it does not exist there.

It does however appear to be in the Bluelagoon theme. Which I have tagged in WHM to keep up to date. I don't think there was an option in there for iconic, since it was already installed.


UPDATE:

After changing to bluelagoon theme and clicking on the awstats.html I get this error.

Error: Couldn't open config file &awstats.mydomain.com.conf& nor &awstats.conf& : No such file or directory

Setup (Config file, web server or permissions) may be wrong.
See AWStats documentation in 'docs' directory for informations on how to setup awstats.


It's not creating the domain.conf file.

Yes that doesn't fix it. I just ran ./runweblogs and put in one of my domains and they were generated.

Yes, that seemed to work for the Bluelagoon template but the iconic files were not generated, maybe because the user was not using it and was using Bluelagoon instead.

running the logs makes it work.

However, the html page isn't found in the iconic theme...only in the bluelagoon one. This would seem to be an omission in the theme updating, yes?

Yes, they have used symlink to default theme in Bluelagoon for the page. I just copied it over to my custom theme and it works fine now.

The Awstats is nice, I wish it was realtime though, some of the options like last visit does not show correctly because of this.

I'm not sure if it would be wise to make it realtime due to server load but then how many people are viewing stats at one time anyways, not a big problem usually. Might be slow loading on big logs, need to look into this one further because it would be nice to have some realtime stats.

Realtime

I know awstats is a realtime log analyser but it has to bo configured.

It only has to access the logs from /apache/domlogs directly and then it can be used in realtime. ;)

In our tests it ate up way to much cpu unless you ran your logs ~4 times a day

The solution is easy...

When I looked at the symlinks referred to earlier they just pointed to the awstats.html page in the default theme. When you look at the html code for that file it shows this:

&html&
&head&
&META HTTP-EQUIV=&Refresh& CONTENT=&0;URL=&cpanel Stats=&awstats($CPDATA{'DNS'})&&&&
&title&&/title&
&/head&
&body bgcolor=&#FFFFFF&&
&/body&
&/html&


Just put that code in a blank page and save it as awstats.html, then upload it to the /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/iconic/stats/ directory, or your custom theme directory.
