I think I will need Awstats for super dummies.  I am sooo thankfull you made this list because at least it makes much more sense than the installation Instructions from Awstats.

Still, I have a few questions.

On point 3 you say: Change the permissions of to 755.  I opened that file with a text editor but don't know what I need to change to 755?

On point 5 you say "Create your own config file" but where should i save this file? which folder?

Thank you sooo much!

  1. must not be edited. In FileZilla, right-click on  on the server. Select File permission  in the popup menu. Change the numeric value of the file attributes to 755 (is usually 644 before you change it).
  2. your config file must be saved in the cgi-bin  directory. This is the folder that contains .

Thank you for your questions. We will change our AWStats Installation for Dummies to make these points more clear.
