I have been using and referring others to the great server package from DeveloperSide (DevSide) for years now, but I made a mistake and showed the AWStats package to a client who now insists on it. Can anyone give me assistance in getting it working?

For example, server pkg 1.06s running on Windows 2000 - CLI works but I need to get CGI working so the client can see stats after logging in to his/her website.

Problem? I get 'Access Denied' in the log, and the browser gives me 'Internal Server Error'. Software Versions are: Apache/2.0.47 (Win32) mod_perl/1.99_10 Perl/v5.8.1 mod_ssl/2.0.47 OpenSSL/0.9.7c PHP/4.3.3

I was just looking at AWStats today and thinking about using it to replace the Analog log-analyzer that has been standard with this Suite since the beginning. Not that one is better than the other, but rather that AWStats is simply more popular.

Is Analog something the client does not like? It should have most, if not more, of the features of AWStats?

That's an old Suite version, we are up to v1.93 now and there are major differences and improvements.

Without actually setting up AWStats myself [which I have never done], at this point all I can do is point you to... http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_setup.html

...which does not look pretty as the setup script seems to want to modify httpd.conf with paths that will not work on win32 without further setup -- nor does it take into consideration of other factors.

You would need to install this manually. Check how Analog was installed for cgi...

Yes - I admit it's an old package (1.06s) on my development machine, I need to upgrade but it's been so reliable, I've been able to spend my time elsewhere! I'm using later versions on several other machines.
I have used Analog successfully, perhaps I need to add Report Magic instead. I've been all over the web reading setups for AWStats, and most of the resources aren't for Windows.

This seems like a config issue, perhaps with Apache. I have AWStats installed at drive C:\Program Files\AWStats and the webserver at D:\www so I'm not sure what the problem might be. I'm not expert in configuring Apache but I've been OK with most other mods. Just hoping someone might be able to help.

OK, it took me my standard twice as long and heavy on the headache remedies, but I got it working. In the event someone else wants to use AWStats on a Windows box, it can be done! But you need to move things around a bit after the installation. Basically, I moved all the scripting from the installed directory to inside www/cgi-bin and modified awstats.pl for the correct perl location. Then a little cleanup in httpd.conf - success!
This location gave me the most help: http://minitutorials.com/apache/stats12.shtml
