    Where can i change the Time when Webalizer and Analog Stats running. Currently they are running at the middle of the Day which is a pain.

    They run "randomly" at some point during the day. I am fairly certain there is no way of changing this.

    If anyone from CPanel would like to tell me anything different, I would love to hear about it.

    Stats run roughly 24 hours from the last time they ran.

    if you look at /home/<name>/tmp you will see two files lastrun and lastrun.bw. They are empty, the time/date is what is important. These files are put there every time cpanel runs stats on that site.

    cpanellogd runs all the time in the background (`ps ax | grep cpanellogd` to see it). Every onece in a while (I'm guessing 5 - 10 min) it checks the date/time of these lastrun files and if the current time is 24 hours past the lastrun time, it runs stats again.

    So here's how you fix your problem. At the time you want your stats to run, log in to your box as root and do this:

    # for f in /home/*/tmp/lastrun* ; do rm -f $f; done

    within 10 min or so cpanellogd will see that they are gone and will run stats for your domains. After that, the lastrun date/time will be set to the time you want your stats to run.

    Thank you dev.null for posting this solution -- this really needs to be in some kind of FAQ, it took me many days to finally find this thread and this solution ;)
