I followed the wonderful instructions by Skybly for AWStats installation for DH and everything went smoothly.
I setup the crontab correctly per Skybly's instructions and then changed it to make it hourly with this-
1 * * * * perl /home/etc...
I get hourly e-mails from crontab stating the following:
----- awstats_buildstaticpages 1.2 (build 1.31) (c) Laurent Destailleur -----
awstats_buildstaticpages allows you to launch AWStats with -staticlinks option to build all possible pages allowed by AWStats -output option.
awstats_buildstaticpages.pl (awstats_options) [awstatsbuildstaticpages_options]
where awstats_options are any option known by AWStats
-config=configvalue is value for -config parameter (REQUIRED)
-update option used to update statistics before to generate pages
-lang=LL to output a HTML report in language LL (en,de,es,fr,...)
-month=MM to output a HTML report for an old month=MM
-year=YYYY to output a HTML report for an old year=YYYY
and awstatsbuildstaticpages_options can be
-awstatsprog=pathtoawstatspl AWStats software (awstats.pl) path
-dir=outputdir Output directory for generated pages
-diricons=icondir Relative path to use as icon dir in links
-builddate=%YY%MMÝ Used to add build date in built pages filenames
-staticlinksext=xxx Build pages with .xxx extension (default .html)
-buildpdf[=pathtohtmldoc] Build a PDF file after building HTML pages.
Output directory must contains icon directory when this option is used (need 'htmldoc')
Odd thing is, my awstats page has not updated since the initial install yet the e-mails continue to come hourly. I know that there is a way to enable AWStats to update manually via a link on the page but I can't quite figure out how to do it.
I've since changed my crontab settings back to 0 3 * * * etc. since hourly emails without updates does me no good.
