Question about awstats

I installed howstats to one of my sites. I followed the instructions from the wiki:

There is something i didnt understad. Do i need to install the cronscript or not?
If i dont how does awstats pages get updated?

Its my understanding that you have to install the cron script. If you followed the static installation you can’t update awstats from the browser.


Use promo code US97OFF to get maximum discounts!
Use o código de promoção US97OFF para descontos de até US97!

yep. i tested it, i could give the command periodicaly to the shell ( boring )
I will set upa cron script, of course

thank you all for the quick help.
