    I am tracking the downloads of a PDF we have linked to, and AWStats shows me the total for each month, but I need to see daily reports to know when it peeked i.e. what did we do on that day to give the download a boost.

    How do I get a daily look at the past downloads?

     
  • Did you try AWStats-Option -databasebreak=day ?

    My URL is:

    /awstats.pl?dataday=01&year=2013&output=downloads&config=MYURKGOESHERE&lang=en&framename=index

    ...and this is how I view the downloads, but I want to see it one day at a time, not monthly.

    Your help would be very much appreciated. I believe the above URL can be altered to show the results I need using the excerpt you have mentioned, but I do not know where I place this in the URL to do this.

    Jean-Luc explains this topic in more detail there. I never called awstats using an URL, so I don't know how to use this feature this way. -databasebreak=day is a command line option and I assume you can use this in an URL in the form &databasebreak=day.
