perl awstats_configure.pl
----- AWStats awstats_configure 1.0 (build 1.9) (c) Laurent Destailleur -----
This tool will help you to configure AWStats to analyze statistics for
one web server. You can try to use it to let it do all that is possible
in AWStats setup, however following the step by step manual setup
documentation (docs/index.html) is often a better idea. Above all if:
- You are not an administrator user,
- You want to analyze downloaded log files without web server,
- You want to analyze mail or ftp log files instead of web log files,
- You need to analyze load balanced servers log files,
- You want to 'understand' all possible ways to use AWStats...
Read the AWStats documentation (docs/index.html).

-----> Running OS detected: Linux, BSD or Unix

-----> Check for web server install

Enter full config file path of your Web server.
Example: /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
Example: /usr/local/etc/apache(13/22)/httpd.confExample: /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
Example: c:\Program files\apache group\apache\conf\httpd.conf
Config file path ('none' to skip web server setup):
> none

Your web server config file(s) could not be found.
You will need to setup your web server manually to declare AWStats
script as a CGI, if you want to build reports dynamically.
See AWStats setup documentation (file docs/index.html)

-----> Update model config file '/usr/local/www/awstats/cgi-bin/awstats.model.conf'
  File awstats.model.conf updated.

-----> Need to create a new config file ?
Do you want me to build a new AWStats config/profile
file (required if first install) [y/N] ? y

-----> Define config file name to create
What is the name of your web site or profile analysis ?
Example: www.mysite.com
Example: demo
Your web site, virtual server or profile name:
> logikfabrik.com

-----> Define config file path
In which directory do you plan to store your config file(s) ?
Default: /etc/awstats
Directory path to store config file(s) (Enter for default):
> /usr/local/etc/awstats

-----> Create config file '/usr/local/etc/awstats/awstats.logikfabrik.com.conf'
 Config file /usr/local/etc/awstats/awstats.logikfabrik.com.conf created.

-----> Add update process inside a scheduler
Sorry, configure.pl does not support automatic add to cron yet.
You can do it manually by adding the following command to your cron:
/usr/local/www/awstats/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -update -config=logikfabrik.com
Or if you have several config files and prefer having only one command:
/usr/local/www/awstats/tools/awstats_updateall.pl now
Press ENTER to continue... 
A SIMPLE config file has been created: /usr/local/etc/awstats/awstats.logikfabrik.com.conf
You should have a look inside to check and change manually main parameters.
You can then manually update your statistics for 'logikfabrik.com' with command:
> perl awstats.pl -update -config=logikfabrik.com
You can also build static report pages for 'logikfabrik.com' with command:
> perl awstats.pl -output=pagetype -config=logikfabrik.com
