I’m in the process of setting up awstats on a Ruby on Rails site. From what I can tell, awstats is working just fine. The problem comes up when I try to navigate to the awstats URL (mydomain.com/statistics/). When I try to do that, the Rails URL rewriting kicks in and tries to find an action to correspond to a nonexistent controller called “statistics”.
I know I have to alter .htaccess in the /public folder to change the URL rewriting behavior. What I don’t know is what to modify it to.
Does anyone have any experience with hacking .htaccess to get awstats to work with Rails?
