    I've just install version 6.6 and am having a little trouble getting to show the stats. I run a cron job every so often to do this:

    /usr/local/awstats/tools/ now -configdir=/etc/awstats/ > /root/logs/awstatsop.txt

    and the output shows that it is working. For example:

    Running '"/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/" -update -config=resource -configdir="/etc/awstats/"' to update config resource
    Create/Update database for config "/etc/awstats/awstats.resource.conf" by AWStats version 6.6 (build 1.887)
    From data in log file "/etc/httpd/logs/split/resource.log"...
    Phase 1 : First bypass old records, searching new record...

    I can confirm this by looking at the /var/lib/awstats directory and seeing content in the log file. For example:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 252423 Jan 13 12:51 awstats012007.resource.txt

    But when I go to the url to view the stats, such as:


    the 'Last update date' is just shown as:

    "Never updated (See 'Build/Update' on awstats_setup.html page)"

    Am I missing a step?? I thought that the update all did the same as running -update, or am I wrong? Can anyone help out?

    Many thanks,

      OK, never mind... Turns out that it was a stupid permissions issue (the stupidity being on my side in forgetting to correct all the permissions in the first place!)
