Problem processing log files

I can't get AWStats to process my log files after the initial setup.  After I installed and configured everything, deleted the log files and so forth, it worked once.  Subsequently, I don't get anything except what looks like a readme file.  I do have another instance of AWstats working fine on a different server – everything is identical except for the domain and the program is working fine there but not on the newer installation.


When I run 'perl -con<my-domain> -update, I'm getting :


"—–awstats 7.0 (build 1.971) (c) 2000-2010 Laurent Destailleur —–

 AWstats is a free web server logfile analyzer to show you advanced web statistics…"

and it goes on from there to give options and features, etc.


Any help would be most appreciated.  Thanks in advance

I think I solved my own problem – permissions on my account.  Even though I'm an admin on the box, I'm not 'the' administrator' and there seems to be some subtle differences (on this box at least) in what the two accounts can do.  Run the script as myself and I get the 'readme' file.  Run is as 'administrator' and it works.
