my AWStats for some reason will occasionally show low stats for a day so I have realized that when properly used the -databasebreak=day -day=x -month=x -year=xxxx works and it gives me a separate file for every day of the week.

However, here is my question.  When viewing the output through the graphics cgi output in a browser AWStats will not show anything from these separate files UNLESS there is also a main file for that month.  So basically there is 1 main file that could be several megs big then up to 30 or 31 daily files that are 100 to 300 kb each. So, I am confused on exactly HOW the graphical part of AWStats is reading those files?  Does it actually read those files instead of the main 30 day full txt file or is it reading both.

The reason that I am asking is that I had added some of the add-on scripts from this website so to get those to show in past months I slowly, very slowly, reran all my months.  However, I have a month or two that the first day of that month is missing in the graphical view output screen and when opening that main 30 day file that day has no data for it BUT there IS a single day output created with the -databasebreak compiling.  In the main AWStats data folder I can see the 30 day txt file for that month and right below it the single day txt file.

When I first started using this I thought AWStats was actually reading the 30 day files but now what I realize is that I first have to run a full 30 day file then directly after that run the -databasebreak to get the 30 individual daily files.  But now even those dont appear to show in the graphical ouput.

I need clarification on exactly how these -databasebreak file are used and read.

AWStats uses the monthly files to generate reports for a month. It uses the daily files only to generate reports for a single day. To view a report for a single day, you need to call AWStats as explained under How to view the report for a given day  in our page Stats by Day.

Our AWStats Day by Day Add-on allows to move more easily from the monthly report to a daily report and back.
