I am trying to merge monthly generated txt log files generated by awstats running on a cpanel hosting solution into yearly results for 32 sub-domains.  I can download the txt logs and view the data in a text editor.  However when I try to combine the logs using I am only getting a blank output file.  What am I doing wrong?  I have awstats installed on a windows 7 system as well as activeperl.  Thanks!

There is a misunderstanding here: AWStats does not generate log files.

AWStats reads the web server log files and generates database files named awstatsMMYYYY.DOMAIN.txt (where MM is the month, YYYY is the year and DOMAIN is the domain name). These AWStats data files are then used to generate the reports.  is a utility that is used to merge web server log files. It cannot merge AWstats data files.

The AllowFullYearView  directive in the AWStats config file can be used to generate reports for a full year from the monthly database files.

Thanks for clearing up my confusion on the logs.  It appears that I will not be able to use the utility for this particular problem.

Is there a way that I can merge the txt files from multiple domains into a single txt file I can use to temporarily replace one of the month txt files so I can graphically view and collect the year end stats for all domains collectively?  Or is there a way to do this with a conversion from txt to excell?  I am just looking for a workflow to merge and process a full year for 32 domains into one awstats or excell overview.

I would prefer if I could get all the information merged, but I could settle for the information included in the "monthly history" as well as the "countries" sections of the data files.

Thanks so much for your help.  We have to do this once a year and so far we have literally had to add up each month's tallies for all 32 domains by hand.  This takes a massive amount of time and it's very easy to make a mistake in the calcuations.  We are looking for a quick easy way to generate this information in a few minutes at year end.

There is no standard solution for merging these data files, but we can do it for you for a small fee. Send an email to if you are interested.
