    Hi Everyone,

    Today a client reported that he got this error when trying to update Awstats from cPanel. I found an old thread regarding this error at :

    So thought of posting a simple work around for the issue. If someone gets this error, check cpanellogd process and see if it is currently processing stats for the user that you want to update Awstats. If not just rename the .bkup (/usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.tld.bkup)file to something else and then update Awstats. Awstats will get updated without any issues.

    # ps aux | grep cpanellogd
    # mv /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.tld.bkup /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.tld_bak

    Once Awstats is updated, just rename the file back to .bkup. Hope it helps someone :)

    Hello :)

    Please keep in mind the bkup logs are created for a reason. It's better to simply let the cpanellogd process complete. This is explained on the following post:

    Thank you.
