I am trying to use AWStats on Windows 2000 that uses IIs 5.0. I have set everything up like it
says, but obviously I am overlooking something. I get the following error when I try to "awstats.pl
Error: Couldn't open server log file C:/WINNT/system32/LogFiles/W3SVC1/exyymmdd.log: No such
file or directory. Setup (awstats, web server or logfile permissions) may be wrong. See
README.TXT for informations on how to install awstats.
The path is correct. I set the log files with the following fields (from the readme.txt) date time
c-ip c-username cs-method cs-uri-sterm cs-status cs-bytes cs-version cs(User-Agent)
It was set to something else, but not anymore. Maybe it's doing this because it don't have a
logfile in the new format yet? If so, how can I produce a logfile manually at any time? I have it
set up now to generate log files daily.
Thanks in advance!!!

The problem you have is AWStats can't find your logfile and
it seems to be a bad configuration.
I see in error message that you had set:
(No need of yymmd.log because awstats will add it himself
when working with IIS5.0 depending on year, month and day).
That still don't work. I must be doing something wrong. Here's the error message now...
Error: Couldn't open server log file C:/WINNT/system32/LogFiles/W3SVC1/ex: No such file or directory.
Setup (awstats, web server or logfile permissions) may be wrong.
What else can I check or can I change something to get it to work?
Update... Now giving a different error - "Couldn't open file
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cory\awstats122000.tmp.296: Permission denied." The number in there is different
some times - 720, 472, 1144, 992, etc...
OK. This is better. Now AWStats can find your log file but
it can't work because AWStats needs to have write
permissions in your C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cory directory to
create the working file (file with a number at the end,
different each time you launch AWStats).
Permissions can be wrong at several places:
- First check your web server configuration (you
need "write" access in the IIS properties of you cory
- Then if your C drive is a NTFS partition, you might have
bad NTFS permissions in his directory.
If you can't find how to check/modify your permission, then
you can do the following this:
- Change, in config file, the DirData parameter
into "C:/temp" (or other) to ask AWStats to use this
directory as the working directory where to write data
Got it!!! Had to give write access to the cory folder. Then give "everyone" write access in the NTFS
