    In my awstats config I have the following SkipFiles line:
    SkipFiles="/blog/xmlrpc.php REGEX[^\/blog\/wp-admin] REGEX[^\/blog\/wp-cron.php] REGEX[^\/blog\/wp-login.php] /blog/wp-login.php"

    However, /blog/wp-login.php is showing up in the Pages-URL full list in awstats. The other urls aren't included there, so SkipFiles appears to be working in some aspect, but I'm not sure why it isn't skipping /blog/wp-login.php ?

    This is with Awstats 7.3 (build 20140126) w/ geoip plugin. The stats I'm looking at were generated after the skipfiles line was added, I realise that skipfiles isn't applied retroactively.

     
  • Are you sure line that appears are not result of an update done before setip the Skipfiles ?

    Yes, it's definitely since the SkipFiles line was updated. Comparing how often requests for /blog/wp-login.php appear in the logs, awstats appears to be counting all GET but no POST requests for it.
