A lot of configuration options stopped working, even the key ones (like
HostAliases) because of some dire consequences of perl 5.14 changes.
More info here, along with more info to the found problems and a possible
temporary fix: http://sourceforge.net/support/tracker.php?aid=3311848 (
I want to add that this is not only for AWstats 7, but ANY version of awstats
has this bug. I tested several 6.x version and latest 7.x and they all share
the same optimizeArray which stopped working in perl 5.14.
I added a better fix to this problem to http://sourceforge.net/support/tracke
This fix also re-instates robot/search engine/OS detection and so on.
Faced the same problem. Have you found out wich perl version to use with
I've also just been trying to work out why I was not getting stats for OS
detection, search engine detection, search keywords and key phrases detection
and I think I have just found the answer here.
For the record I installed the latest ActivePerl 126.96.36.1992 which was giving
me problems with AWStats 7.0
I am about to downgrade to only free lower version of Active Perl which is
188.8.131.525 and I will see if that resolves the issue.
Assuming that this resolves the issue can someone please put a warning on the
main download page?
I mean next to Last Stable
Last stable version is 7.0 - 2010-12-05 23:54
Your Perl version must be at least 5.00503 (or higher) to use AWStats 6.x or
NOTE: If you use a perl version higher than 5.12.4 you currently will lose statistics for OS and search engine detection
Yes it worked. Do NOT use a perl version higher than 5.12.4 until this is
resolved unless you are happy for OS detection, Search engine detection,
keywords and key phrases detection to not work.
A note on the AWStats download page would be a very good idea.
