about awstats: the logfile awstats022017.domain.tld.txt is generated every day, so this one is OK but the logfile awstats022017.www.domain.tld.txt is not being updated anymore.

as a result stats are correct on domain.tld/awstats/awstats.pl but stats are not correct on www.domain.tld/awstats/awstats.pl

in the directory home/domain.tld/awstats/ the "awstats022017.www.domain.tld.txt" is not being updated anymore. Only "awstats022017.domain.tld.txt" in that directory is updated.

how can I resolve this?

Best regards Alain Cox

( I have tried to file this via my virtualmin system - but I received an error - sorry if this would mean that this support is a duplicate)


Normally when Virtualmin sets up AWstats, the www.domain file is a symbolic link to the domain file, specifically to deal with this case.

thanks, but unfortunately I am not very familiar with symbolic links... but if it means that there is only one original/physical file and that the other file is more or less a virtual target... Can you please tell me the filename which really contains the data and in what directory is it stored?

(sorry if it is a stupid approach of something I do not fully understand)

hello Jamie, Problem solved. I deleted both files for the current month and regenerated a report. Now everything shows fine (for domain.tld and www.domain.tld) best regards Alain Cox

hello Jamie, my system is running the latest Usermin (version 1.690-1)

I read on http://www.webmin.com/uwebmail.html that there is a modified package escpecially for web-based email: usermin-webmail-1.701

I have tried installing it under Webmin/Usermin Configuration/Usermin Modules/Install Module/From ftp or http URL with this url http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/usermin-webmail-1.701-1.noar...

But it fails, this is the error: Not a valid module file : tar: This does not look like a tar archive tar: Skipping to next header tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Can you tell me the correct way to install usermin-webmail-1.701 ?

Thanks in advance! Alain Cox

If you are already running Virtualmin, you shouldn't need to install that package as usermin is already setup in webmail mode by default.

hello Jamie,

Sorry to come back on it ... but my users use "Usermin version 1.690". Wouldn't it be nicer/better to install "Usermin-webmail-1.701"?

I read it on http://www.webmin.com/uwebmail.html : it says that this version is escpecially for web-based email. Or is there really no difference between those 2 versions. Why the download link on that page?

The only difference between the two is the default configuration. However, when the Virtualmin install process install usermin, it does the same webmail-mode setup.
