I keep on seeing this error:


Your log file /var/log/nginx/access_20110725.log must have a bad format or LogFormat parameter setup does not match this format.

Your AWStats LogFormat parameter is: %host %other %other %time1 %methodurl %code %bytesd %refererquot %uaquot %otherquot

This means each line in your web server log file need to have the following personalized log format:

%host %other %other %time1 %methodurl %code %bytesd %refererquot %uaquot %otherquot

And this is an example of records AWStats found in your log file (the record number 50 in your log): – – [25/Jul/2011:01:06:58 +0530] GET /view?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=lg+optimus+p500&search_type=mobiles&last_search_type=books HTTP/1.1 304 0 "" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0)" "-"


Not sure where the format is mismatching

I would replace your %methodurl  by %method %url %other .

Try this:

LogFormat="%host %other %other %time1 %method %url %other %code %bytesd %refererquot %uaquot %otherquot"
