Recently I have been getting fed up with Google Analytics, as it is missing a lot of information, whether it not being there to begin with, or getting anonymous data (such as browser used).
I have AWStats on my personal website, which is hosted through a different company to the one where I work use, and it isn't installed natively. So I tried to install AWStats, however, I have no idea what I'm doing, and the documentation isn't very clear: http://www.awstats.org/docs/awstats_setup.html
I extracted the AWStats zip file, and put in onto my server, via ftp, in a folder called "awstats". I then logged into the server through PuTTY, through the root, and ran the command
As is stated on the site linked, and it says
Can't open perl script "awstats_configure.pl": No such file or directory
So I tried doing:
But that still didn't work.
Any idea where I am going wrong? As ugly as AWStats interface is, from my experience it is a lot more reliable that Google Analytics, although I wouldn't remove that (the more data the better), so I would like to get it working.
