Problem whit Awstats (/usr/bin/perl)

  • Posted February 17, 2015


When i visit my awstats pages i get only file information like this:

# Free realtime web server logfile analyzer to show advanced web statistics.
# Works from command line or as a CGI. You must use this script as often as
# necessary from your scheduler to update your statistics and from command
# line or a browser to read report results.

$VERSION  = "7.3 (build $REVISION)";

Any suggestions on what is wrong? 

I have setup my apache server whit help off and i am not sure that it is configured to handle that. When i ask them about it they gave me this info: We only support PHP apps. We don’t support CGI. It’s possible to customize your server to support CGI, but we can’t provide help with that.

Have you configured apache to handle CGI scripts? You will need to ensure that the directory where your scripts are located is set to +ExecCGI in your apache configuration file.
