You can use -staticlinks with 4.0

There is a log parsing only during "update" process.
Even when clicking cgi links there is no read of log file (only awstats database is read).
Above all with 4.0 there is a new option -staticlinks

This is normal way of working of 4.0

Config directory is at choice
/etc/opt/awstats /etc/awstats /etc or current dir

LOVE IT, but...
This program produces a GREAT report and I like the ability to customize it via the config file.
Just a couple of thoughts:
- An option to disable all hyperlinks on the report would be good - just produce a pretty report for users to look at - not click on - I doubt most webmasters want a report on-line that lets users initiate log parsing routines at will.
- Show IP addresses on report rather than just saying unresolved ip - especially if I turn off DNS lookups I want to see the IP addresses, not just a totals line representing all unresolved addresses.
- default config file location might be better placed in a subdirectory under the current directory rather than /etc especially when you get lots of domains - it's easy to change though.
- I get a headache reading the code but that's just me - need to "use strict;"

some thoughts
* As awstats is in perl, I succeed in customize it for my needs. I particularly appreciate the LogFormat option.

* Awstats doesn't seem to generate the whole report (just the main page). Too bad, I'm not fond of the realtime 'cgi' feature

* use strict; It's an euphimism to say that the code isn't very clean and clear

Great Software
Couldn't get Webalizer running properly on a Cobalt RaQ4 so I decided to give AWStats a try. Wow. AWStats is easy to setup and generates beautiful, easy-to-read reports. Highly recommended.

AWSTATS Rocks
Awstats rocks. Yet, a minor bug when resolving country names based on the host name.
If a name has more than one "dot" then AWSTATE is unable do resolve the originating country. However, this is the best tool I'have tried so far.

this is very good and very easy to setup
I have now set this up on 9 sites it works very well, is very easy to use, and does exactly that it claims

2.23 has solved all major problems
What Patrick Baer says is no more true.
Now AWStats doesn't purge your log file by default.
All known bugs of first version are also solved in 2.23.
