+AWStats is a free, powerful and featureful tool that generates advanced web
+streaming, ftp or mail server statistics, graphically. AWStats works as a
+CGI or from command line and shows you all possible information your log
+contains, in few graphical web pages. It can analyze log files from all
+major server tools like Apache log files and a lot of other web, proxy,
+wap, streaming servers, mail servers and some ftp servers.
+There's an automated script ( to prepare the httpd
+config file located in DOCROOT/awstats/tools/ - however, you should not
+need/want to run it; instead, everything should work well if you make the
+changes listed below.
+Edit /etc/httpd/httpd.conf (this is a required change to use AWStats):
+Comment this out: CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/access_log" common
+Uncomment this: CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/access_log" combined
+Short How-to for using AWStats as CGI:
+Add the following include line /etc/httpd/httpd.conf:
+Include /etc/httpd/extra/httpd-awstats.conf
+Then restart httpd: "/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd restart"
+A sample config file will be placed in /etc/awstats; please read it and
+make the necessary changes for your system. To run awstats, please refer
+to the documentation in the package.
