[TYPO3-english] ics_awstats not logging properly

Hi Gert,

Thanks for the fast reply. Sorry for the incompleteness. As requested:

TYPO3 4.5.15
ics_awstats 0.5.3
ics_web_awstats 0.4.0

OS: CentOS with Apache and cPanel

There is a server log created by apache and saved to the default location (/var/log I believe ... can't be sure because I'm on a shared server, but I don't use it anyway). There is also a log created by ics_awstats and saved to /public_html/typo/log. The former is working fine but the latter is the one that gets used by my client inside TYPO3 and is causing the issue.

without issue ... or so I thought! A few days ago, a client tells me they wanted to see

traffic to a specific page but when they went to the "Pages-URL" section of AWStats,

there was nothing there. My kneejerk reaction was, "there's nothing there because

nobody has visited", however when I look at raw server logs (separate from the

log file created by ics_awstats) and go to the page with my IP, I can clearly

see there is traffic to the page. Moreover, when I look at the log file created

by ics_awstats, my IP will sometimes show up and sometimes not. For example,

I just went to the site and clicked on 3 links ... but looking at the ics_awstats

log there's nothing there.

Hi Scott, there is too little information about your server.

I am using opensuse with apache2 and there is a totally (typo3-)independant
logfile - created from apache in /var/log/apache

This file is never lieing, it has nothing to do with TYPO3.
So what are yo doing on what platform with what server ??

best regards
