Web stats not updating in cPanel

First check permission of /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/awstats.pl, it should be 755.

Then to update awstats and webalizer run the script :

# /scripts/runweblogs user_nameIf that didn't work try fixwebalizer script :

# /scripts/fixwebalizer

If that doesn’t update stats, then check domlogs of the domain and see if it is up to date. You can use the following script to run statistics :

# /scripts/runstatsonce

If none of the above fixes the issue and the awstats page for the domain is still showing the old date for last update, run the following command :

# /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/awstats.pl -config=/home/user_name/tmp/awstats/awstats.domain.com.conf -LogFile=/usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.com -update
