I tried using databasebreak but it seems we have an older version of Awstats installed and that I would need to update it to the latest version.

I wanted to know if the update process would cause me to recreate the conf files, the txt files and the webstats already generated. OR will that all stay the same ? Should I create backups of these before proceeding ?

If any1 can provide some instructions for updating AWstats from version 6.1 to the latest stable version i ll appreciate

Thanks for the advice

It is always a good idea to make a backup when you update a software. In this case, you should backup the AWStats database files (.txt  files).

Updating AWStats is done by replacing the old and the lib , lang  and plugins  directories by their new versions.

I believe that a few directives have been added or modified in the .conf file since 6.1, but a comparison of your existing config file with the new awstats.model.conf  should show you what has been changed.
