Hello all.  First, if you haven't looked at Awstats, go take a look.  NICE 


Now to the problem......
I have installed and configured awstats for my server. Everything is 
running fine with the exception that I cannot get awstats to update via 
cron.  This is what I have in my crontab - /home/httpd/cgi-bin/awstats.pl 
-config=myconfig -update

This is the error that I get - Error: Couldn't open config file 
"awstats." nor "awstats.conf" : No such file or directory

Awstats will update if I run the update command from the cgi-bin directory 
via telnet.

I searched the awstats forums and tried the 2 suggestions that I found. One 
was to use the full path for DirData and the other was to make the datadir 
writable. Neither fix the problem.

Can anyone offer any advice?



Try awstats.  You won't be sorry.  Very easy setup.
