Can anyone tell me how to exclude specific file tupes from the "File Type" section of the AWStats report?

I've tried "NotPageList" but it had no effect on the report.

You can exclude a file type from all reports with the SkipFiles directive. That's easy.

I do not know any conifguration option to exclude a specific file type only from the "File Type" section.

I believe that you can get what you want, if you are ready to slightly change the  script. Look immediately after 

  # Define page and extensionIt is line 6634 in my AWStats 6.9-beta. I would change the test in order to execute $extension='Unknown'; for all extensions I want to exclude.

Thanks for the reply.

I have the following SkipFiles statement in my config file.

SkipFiles="css js class gif jpg jpeg png bmp ico swf vbs inc htc xml mde bat lnk pl axd"

But they are still listed on the report.

If you have any other suggestions I would appreciate them.

You need to use regular expressions in SkipFiles, like here :


Data which is already in AWStats database will not be modified. The new SkipFiles  will only apply to log file records that have not yet been read by AWStats.
