Hello guys,

I'm missing 5 days stats from the days of month statistics view. I was wondering how can I recover those statistics if i was able to find the IIS log files for those days.

Keep in mind that i'm a beginner in awstats

Thank you for your help.

AWStats is not able to process day “D” if day “D+1″ is already processed.

There is no magic solution to your problem. You need to have access to all the IIS log files of the month and to re-run the update for each day. Before you do that, rename the existing AWStats database file for the month (or delete it or move it to another directory). If the month you are updating is not the present month, you need to temporary rename all other months after the month of the update period as well.

Note that you can specify the path and name of the log file in the command line like in this example : -config=servername -update -LogFile=C:/IISLogs/www/W3abc/ex080510.log

I'm running into essentially the same problem, and was glad to find your helpful answer, but had needed a bit more info. Like fady_ay, I'm running stats for IIS logs. I'm using AWStats on Win2k, so I'm not sure where AWStats stores its database for each month (and how to delete/rename it).

If there's something I missed in the documentation, I apologize.

First you need to find the AWStats config file. It is called awstats.your_domain.conf  where your_domain  is usually your domain name.

In the config file, you will find the DirData  directive: it defines the directory where AWStats stores its database files.

To rename the database files, replace their .txt  extension by .test  (for example).

Thank you. Interestingly the last data file was missing until I tried to run the older file. Once it appeared and I renamed it too, this solved my problem.
