awstats -config virtualhostname

[ options ]


This runs awstats in command line to update statistics (-update option) of a web site, from the log file defined in AWStats config file, or build a HTML report (-output option). First, awstats tries to read awstats.virtualhostname.conf as the config file. If not found, awstats tries to read awstats.conf, and finally the full path passed to -config option.

Config files (awstats.virtualhostname.conf or awstats.conf) must be in /etc/awstats, /usr/local/etc/awstats or /etc.


A summary of options is included below.


to update statistics (default)


to output main HTML report (no update made except with -update)


Display usage information.


AWStats checks environment variable AWSTATS_FORCE_CONFIG; if defined, AWStats will use it as the "config" value, whatever is the value on command line.
