I'd like to use this to get awstats data from our linux/apache server. I understand that to do that, I would need to download the files to my own pc, which i can do.

I just wanted to put in a plug , though, for maybe having the program connect to a remote pc with the correct path. This would save a lot of time!Laugh

All in all though, great program!

Hi lisaH,

Try using a batch file. Here is an example. It can definitely be improved and you will have to replace the names in uppercase letters by the values required by your system:

@echo off

echo open FTP-SERVER>ftp.commands
echo USER-NAME>>ftp.commands
echo PASSWORD>>ftp.commands
echo get /PATH-DATA-DIR/awstats%1.CONFIG.txt>>ftp.commands
echo quit>>ftp.commands
ftp -v -i -s:ftp.commands
echo . | del ftp.commands

echo awstats%1.CONFIG.txt>aws2xls.commands
echo yes>>aws2xls.commands
aws2xls < aws2xls.commands
echo . | del aws2xls.commands


  • FTP-SERVER is the host name of your FTP server
  • USER-NAME is the username to connect to the FTP server
  • PASSWORD is the password
  • PATH-DATA-DIR is the path to the directory containing the AWStats data files after you have logged in your FTP server
  • CONFIG is the config name of your AWStats data files

If the batch file is called plug.bat , you must call it like this:

plug.bat 052010

to download and convert the AWStats data file of May 2010.
