Plesk 8.1 - No Stats Archives With AwStats And Weablizer
Mar 11, 2007
I do have a managed VPS at SolarVPS, it's set up with CentOS 4.2 p6, Plesk 8.1 and AwStats 6.6 and Webalizer.
Webalizer and AwStats are working, but there's a problem with accessing the monthly archives. When looking at AwStats or Webalizer I can only access the current month, NO previous months, NO archives, which makes statistics pretty useless.
I've already asked support at SolarVPS, but they said it's 3rd party software and they don't support it
I guess I'm not the only one having problems to access the web stats. Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
I look after a number of sites and monitor their stats. We use both webalizer and AWSTATS so we can have a comparison. Up until recently the stats for both of them where relatively the same, webalizer usually showing higher numbers as it doesn't filter bots but the progression of increase and decrease in stats was proportional. However, over the last few months a curious trend is appearing, the stats in AWSTATS are decreasing every month whereas the stats in Webalizer are increasing, the gap between them now is huge.
I don't like having to come here for help, but I'm stumped on this one and my server tech isn't really helping - perhaps I'm overlooking the obvious. I have an addon domain on which stats are not updating. As of the 11th of this month, the site had over 1.2k uniques and right around that time we did a server move (on the 10th so it may have started then).
It is only for this one addon domain that things aren't working. It registers 0 new anything since then with the exception of yesterday when my tech says he repeatedly refreshed the page and it registered a grand total of 2 uniques. Back to 0 again so far today. I know the site is getting traffic.
Secondly, Webalizer shows very minor traffic in its categories with numbers that remain in the low single digits.
I'm running Plesk 9.2.2 & using the supplied AWStats install. Where will I find the configuration that dictates when AWStats will be updated? It's currently updating at 3.36am daily, & I'd like to set it to hourly. Can't find anything in the root or psaadm crontabs & not sure where else to look.
how to enable AWStats for the domains on my server. In our old Panel (v9.5), I could go Domains > DOMAIN.TLD > Web Hosting Settings, and on that page there was an option to choose between Webalizer/AWStats/None. In version 11.5, I don't see that option.
When I look on the actual Windows server, I do see an AWStats directory along with a Webalizer directory in "C:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskAdditional", so I think it's installed...? AWStats comes along as part of the Plesk Panel license, right?
I can see the Webalizer stats when I browse to [URL] ...., but I'd much rather see AWStats.
Using Plesk 12 on a VPS with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. In the Web Server Settings, if I select "Process PHP by nginx", then the URL "<domain>/plesk-stat/webstat/" is answered by Nginx with "404 Not Found". Having sniffed around, it seems:
/var/www/vhosts/system/VHOST/statistics/webstat is getting statistics gathered.I can't say if they are complete, or even sensible, but things are happening there.The various Alias and other statements required for access to AWStats via Apache are contained in the Apache config file /var/www /vhosts/system/VHOST/conf/last_httpd.conf..But no equivalent statements are generated in /var/www/vhosts/system/VHOST/conf/last_nginx.conf.
I accidently added a new domain to another domains webspace instead of a separate one. I removed the domain and readded it correctly.Ever since then the nightly web_statistics_executor.exe gives me the error
The system cannot find the path specified. (Error code 3) at Open file 'D:Inetpubvhostsdomain.co.uk. pleskstatisticsdomain2.co. ukwebstatCopy AWStats.lock'....
I have an issue with Plesk and Awstats not building the html pages for website statistics. Problem is server-wide i.e. it effects all domains.
I've tried to manually run the /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/statistics with every possible options but all that happens is that awstats calculates new stats to the vhosts /var/www/vhosts/system/domain.tld/statistics/webstat/awstatsMMYYYY.domain.tld-http.txt file.
Nothing is put into the /var/www/vhosts/system/domain.tld/statistics/webstat/YYYY-MM folder which should contain the static html pages.
Code: # ll /var/www/vhosts/system/<domain.tld>/statistics/webstat total 80 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Nov 5 10:58 ./ dr-xr-x--- 6 root psaserv 4096 Oct 23 12:36 ../ drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Oct 23 13:12 2014-10/
I was able to create the static pages by running Awstats directly:
So things I have already checked: - Awstat paths in /etc/psa/psa.conf are correct - Domain configs are ok as awstat can create the stats data and awstats_buildstaticpages.pl can can create the pages just fine - File permissions are ok
I just cannot figure what the problem is. /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/statistics doesn't give any errors but on the other hand it doesn't have a debug option either which might be useful.
I followed the following KB to allow country to be identified via GeoIP in AWStats: [URL] .... It works well on one of my domain, but I had to disable first the stats through PLESK Admin, then to reactivate it, so it would regenerate the conf file in /usr/local/psa/etc/awstats/* for a particulair domain. I then followed this KB to re-calculate all stats with country identification: [URL] .... It works as well.
But now: How can I regenerate all the conf file in /usr/local/psa/etc/awstats/* ? Is there any magic command?
I have noticed that resellers traffic stats (looks like email) are not being updated and just show 0.
On the server that is for resellers I see there is a file in /usr/local/psa/var/log containing a file mail_traffic_pendings.dat with sender and recipient domain traffic. I presume this has to be processed to go into the database, but obviously it is not. How to debug this issue so that email stats get updated for clients.
I had an hosting account with a copany, recently I migrated to VPS managed by plesk 11.5..I was able to get the awstats database file from the old host, and i have copied them in the /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/statistics/webstats/ folder, together with the other database files genereted by the new VPS hosting
Only problem is that plesk only rebuilds everyday the static page for the current month, and I see no way to ask him to build the pages for this past months. Also would be good if he would rebuild the header to have updated the dropdown menu from which to choose the month to dispay..Is it possible to rebuild manually these static pages?
Below are some results from various stats programs from one day's activity on our site. webaliser and awstats give sort of similar results (although still 6400 pageloads difference), but these results differ so much from what google (analytics) says.
can anyone think of an explanation for this? does google have a different definition of a visit compared to webaliser and awstats? for these latter two is visits = hits?
ive just setup and installed Awstats on my server, its working great but i have one question id like to find a solution to.
i run a 'mobile' community site thats accessible on mobile phones, but for some reason awstats seems to think the browser called UP.browser (which alot of phones use) is a bot and therefore is not displaying it in the main results. does anyone know how to change this.
does anybody know if there is a possibility to circumvent godaddy´s pathetic stats they offer on shared accounts?
-I am not quite sure what tells you the unique visitors (always a good one to know )
-It doesn´t tell you what robots crawl your site. It just says: robots 28 (great!)
-The graphs are all reversed. Meaning that the now date is always on the very left hand corner of the x-axis towards the 0 intersection. This is pretty pathetic as it goes against anything human brains are accustomed to.
I´ve got to stop venting now. I would appreciate if somebody knows where I can find the unique visitors (hosts served maybe?) and how I can install a better stats program on Linux shared hosting at go daddy.
When I go through my AWStats under "Links from an external page (other web sites except search engines)" I see several domains that have linked to me. When I visit these sites they are generally porn and drug sites that do not contain a link. Some of the sites redirect you to other sites. When you look up these domain names they are all from Russia.
These sites account for mulitple hits as high as +14.5%. These sites do not represent the content on my sites.
My questions are.
How do I stop this? I have found banning IP addresses does nothing.

Stats are not updating for this account. I ran this twice, keeps getting stuck at this line forever..
I have tried to manually setup awstats on a website in Windows 2008 with IIS 7. The problem here is that I have to create two conf files for each website, one named awstats.sitename.conf and the other awstats.www.sitename.conf. If I don't do so, then awstats does not work on either www.sitename.com or sitename.com. I cannot update the stats or view it from the browser. I have a few Hosting controller servers in which awstats is used and I compared the conf file with them and there is no difference. I wonder what could be the issue.
