Newbie AWStats Question

apps

#1

I have a Dreamhost Dedicated Server with multiple (five) domains. I would like to install AWStats to run statistics for each of the domains, but being a newbie I have a couple of questions.

  1. Would I need to install AWStats separately for each domain?
  2. Several people have said that the install was really easy, but is this something I should try? I’ve installed software on my previous server, and I’d like to have the control, but I don’t want to screw it up.
  3. If I get DreamHost or someone else to do the install how much time (cost) are we looking at to install it.
  4. Anything else you can think of that I may have overlooked?
    Thanks in advance for your responses,
    Antoni Deighton

I’ll answer the best I can:

  1. No. Just different config files per domain
  2. It’s hard to screw up anything. Just follow the instructions in the manual, and you’ll probably be fine.
  3. As for cost, I have no idea, but time… well… I’ve setup AWStats a few times now (at different servers), and it takes perhaps 30 minutes to set it up and configure it.
  4. Don’t think so :slight_smile:

Hope this helps,

Thanks — I guess that’s all I need to know! I’ll work on installing it this week.
Thanks,
