Hello everyone,

Lets assume my domain is that i'am redirecting to

Under IIS manager i have added the old website (no www) with a redirection to www.domainname.comlSQ

i made a newwebsite with the nessary webfolders and files.

I need this because of seo issues, google sees and as different sites.

Awstats isn't updating the files no more but ftp stats work fine.

Do i have to rename the config file or something ?

Thanks for any suggestions. Laugh

In typical IIS systems, AWStats is controlled by the Task Scheduler that runs it once a day. I would check that the AWStats update command is still present in the Task Scheduler. Also check that the update command is using the right AWStats config file. By the way, the config file must be called …something.conf  and not …something.config . The LogFile directive in the AWStats config file must point to the directory that contains the web server log files. It is possible that this directory was changed when you made the changes for the redirection.

I hope this helps.
