Problem generating old files

This is using AWStats 6.3 on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0

My log files will not be processed for 2010. The stats are all fine up to 31/12/2009.

The last file in my DirData folder is 'awstats122009.[config].txt' – there is no 'awstats012010.[config].txt' or later.

If I change my LogFile entry in the conf file to LogFile="C:/Inetpub/vhosts/[domain]/statistics/logs/W3SVC[nnnnn]/ex100101.log" and run "perl -config=[domain] -update", the expected awstats012010.[config].txt is not generated and I get:

Update for config "./awstats.[domain].conf"
With data in log file "C:/Inetpub/vhosts/[domain]/statistics/logs/W3SVC[nnnnn]
Phase 1 : First bypass old records, searching new record…
Direct access to last remembered record has fallen on another record.
So searching new records from beginning of log file…
Jumped lines in file: 0
Parsed lines in file: 35616
 Found 6 dropped records,
 Found 18 corrupted records,
 Found 35592 old records,
 Found 0 new qualified records.

Attempts at subsequent log files result in the same problem; AWStats thinks these are all old records even though the file for that month does not exist. Any pointers to how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Temporarily move all files contained in DirData to another directory and try again. This will allow you to generate the AWStats data files for January 2010. When this is done, move the 2009 data files back to DirData.
