    As of version 7, the option ShowDownloadsStats was added. I'm a little unclear regarding what awstats considers a download.

    As far as I understand, hits are all files accessed. Page views, in the default configuration, are all files accessed that aren't file types defined in the NotPageList directive. So what defines a download? I've been though the documentation, and I can't seem to find an answer.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    -James

    Ok, I figured it out. Types of files counted as "downloads" are defined in the mime.pm perl modue included with awstats. Just wanted to update rather than leave a dangling question. I believe this behavior was implemented in awstats 7.0.

    Cheers,
