Awstats is not updating

It may take a while to update. In our case a txt file in the statdata directory is updated or created. Make sure there is a trailing empty line at the end of your crontab file after your last command-line. If this is slow, or putting too much load on your server, consider generating static reports instead.

Create a configuration file

If you want to see which lines are corrupted, you can add the -showcorrupted option on the command line. Create a configuration file by copying awstats. This new file must be saved in the same directory as awstats.

If you want

If you want to see which lines were dropped, you can add the -showdropped option on the command line. Using the on-line update does not prevent you from running the update process automatically on a scheduled basis the command is same as that of the first update process above. One of the options is -update which will update the database before creating the reports. Installation and configuration is finished.

Old records are simply records that were already processed by a previous update session. Set the reported period to the month and year.
