Alright, this is all very new to me and so yeah, I’m having some difficulties.
Right now I’m following the instructions at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/AWStats_Installation attempting to install awstats. I’m currently stuck at the heading where it says “Setting up the Domain Name”.
I made a shell account so that I could use Putty to do these things. I have Enable ssh/telnet? clicked and Type is set to /bin/bash. I tried to create a directory using my shell under my domain name but the shell account does not have access to that and I’m not sure why. Do I have the wrong combination of settings? I can access it with my normal FTP login though of course.
I also noticed that while I’m on my initial FTP login account, I’m unable to see the awstats folder I created while under my shell account.
I realize that this is probably something silly that I overlooked because I’m a total newb but regardless, I’m totally stumped.
If anyone can offer some help, thank you very much. Also, while I’m at it, is there anything else I should know for when following the dreamhost wiki instructions for setting up awstats?
