Your problem description :
Hello, your software looks great! (Though I have yet to see it functional on my site).
First a little background to my problem; my host will not allow me to place
the .conf file in /etc, however by placing the file in the same directory as
awstats.pl I am able to successfully run awstats.pl -config=site update from the
command line. The problem comes when I attempt to run awstats.pl from a
browser; the program dies with the following message:
Error: Couldn't open config file "awstats.digitalsnafu.com.conf"
nor "awstats.conf" : No such file or directory
Setup (Config file, web server or permissions) may be wrong.
See README.TXT for informations on how to setup awstats.
Is it possible to modify the source code so that the .conf file is in the proper
location? Or am I missing the problem completely, I have tried changing the
permissions for the .conf file from one end of the spectrum to the other without
any luck. I dont have a much experience (perhaps any is a better term) with perl
but the only reference I can find to the .conf file location is in awstats.pl line 415,
and my playing achieved only more of the same error codes.
I hope I make sense, and I really hope you can help, thank you ever so kindly in
