I just began working at this new job and I have to config a new host for stats with awstats. I once used awstats on my own server, no biggie.

Now, I'm on a multi-sites server with the acces_log files nicely splitted. I copied a awstats.conf file from one of the sites that already has (working) stats. I changed the LogFile and SiteDomain values as mentioned from http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_setup.html#BUILD_UPDATE, saved the conf and ran the commands

perl awstats.pl -config=mysite -update
perl awstats.pl -config=mysite -output -staticlinks > awstats.mysite.html

(yes I changed it with my infos...)

PROBLEM IS : whenever I try to access the html file or the dynamic page (with the config option on awstats.pl like my working site does), I get the stats of the MAIN site from access.log itself (and not access_log-mysite) from what it says at the top of the page and from the hostname on the left tab (stats for mysite.com)...

what did I do wrong? There's no errors from what I see...

Thanks a lot for any help


Update for config "/etc/awstats/awstats.conf" With data in log file "/var/log/httpd/access_log"... Phase 1 : First bypass old records, searching new record... Direct access after last parsed record (after line 966) Jumped lines in file: 966 Found 966 already parsed records. Parsed lines in file: 225 Found 0 dropped records, Found 0 corrupted records, Found 0 old records, Found 225 new qualified records.

/facepalm WHY DIDN'T i SEE THAT BEFORE...:/

renamed my awstats.www.mysite.ca with a .conf at the end...

WHY? Because the conf parameter is whats between "awstats." and ".conf" in the filename... and mine didn't have the .conf!
