Topic: Awstats is not updating statistics.

I'm running iRedMail on an Ubuntu server and everything works perfectly except awstats is not being updated.  The cron jobs exist and I keep getting this at the top of the awstats page:

Never updated (See 'Build/Update' on awstats_setup.html page)

Is there some configuration file or something that I need to run to kick off the update?

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

Check cron logs first...

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

Where would I find the cron logs?  I looked under /var/log/ but didn't find a log for cron.

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

Is cron daemon running on your system? Does the command in crontab work as expected while running it manually?

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

Yes I verified the cron service is running, and I ran the perl scripts that were in cron manually:

perl /usr/lib/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -config=mail3.beltrailway.com > /dev/null
perl /usr/lib/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -config=mail > /dev/null

This still did not update the site.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

What's the output message while you ran it manually?

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

Nothing, it just goes back to the command line.

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

I don't know if this will help you, but my cron entry is quite different... Maybe Linux flavor difference?

exec /usr/share/awstats/tools/awstats_updateall.pl now -configdir="/etc/awstats" -awstatsprog="/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/awstats.pl"

LE:
And, do you have proper conf files in /etc/awstats or whatever?

And when I run it, I get:

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

I am also experiencing this same problem with 'Advanced Web Statistics 6.9 (build 1.925)'

Looking at the cron file '/etc/cron.hourly/00awstats'
it refers to /var/log/httpd/access_log, which only seems to be logging events involving my ubuntu machine, and not any others on the network.  (a mix between XP and ubuntu).

Also, being March 18th today... newest log with data in it ../access_log.1 is dated for Feb 23. 

The latest .../access_log is empty. 

My users are only using HTTPS, don't know if it makes a difference.  But we've had internal and external access of webmail and no report of it.

Hope this helps.

Re: Awstats is not updating statistics.

Yes, I forgot to mention that too, I am only access through SSL.  Could Awstat be looking at the wrong log files?
