AWStats 4.0 final has been released

AWStats 4.0 is ready

It's a pleasure to announce that AWStats 4.0 has been released.

Version 4.0 is a major version.

WARNING: 4.0 is not compatible with OLD history data files. If you use 4.0
to read statistics for old month, report for "visitors" will be wrong as all
old unresolved ip processed with AWStats 3.2 will not be counted when
viewed with 4.0.

So, if you don't want to "rebuild" old statistics and want to have your
customers to keep a view on stats of OLD month (analyzed with AWStats 3.2),
you must keep 2 versions of AWStats: 4.0 to manage and view new month and
3.2 to allow users to "see" statistics for OLD month. Sorry for this, but this
change was absolutely necessary to make AWStats better and easier to use in

You can download 4.0 from AWStats official web site:

  • New tool: awstats_buildstaticpages.pl

  • The new feature you can get with new the parameter
    "ShowWhoIsLinks" is not working correctly (bad link
    on a lot of domain names). Because this is a minor bug
    and the way to solve this requires a lot of work, I
    decided to solve it in a next version only. You can
    just not use this feature (by default) if you don't
    want to have invalid "WhoIs" links in your reported
  • RPM may not works correctly for some OS. Just use
    tgz of zip distribution instead if you experience
