    I've got a problem with the awstats of my Cpanel. It starts running at 13:00, that's when it's very busy at our website so it doesn't get the job done, because of the load.

    Is it possible to change the settings when to start analyzing the logfiles and get it done in the middle of the night? I cannot seem to find the crontab file which controls this..

    Thanks!

    There is an addon installable in WHM that allows you to control what times are OK for the logs to process (and also how many times per day/week they get processed).

    Also, I forgot to add, you should check the time on your server to make sure it is correct for your preferred timezone. If your server is in Texas and set to GMT-6 and you live in China which is GMT+8 your "overnight" time will be very different than your servers. :)
