I set up awstats a few days ago and it was successfully doing it's thing, however wasn't working via crontab due to a typo.
When I try to run it now via ssh, this is reported back
Build main page: "/home/mydir/awstats/cgi-bin/awstats.pl" -config=mysite.com -staticlinks -output
I ran it with perl awstats.pl -config=mysite.com -update
it gets to here:
Phase 2 : Now process new records (Flush history on disk after 20000 hosts)...
I have no idea why this process is getting killed, or erroring. Google hasn't proven much help.
