stats generation / explanation / understanding how it works


Feb 10, 2005
Hey all.

I've got to admit I feel lost. I've been dealing with WHM/cpanel for over a year and I've always assumed that stats get generated every night but I dont think I ever pin pointed where and when they get ran from. I always assumed upcp did this nightly from cron, is this correct?

First I know that there is a script to run stats manually.

What I'm looking for is help finding where the stats get ran from every night on a standard install of WHM/ cpanel so I can set a defined time to run the stats.

any ideas / explantion of how this works on the whm would be nice. Even if its been posted before (I've looked but havent found it) a link to the thread would be nice if any happens to know of it.
