Awstats - how to install it on Ubuntu 14.04

Good day,

Awstats uninstalled by mistake, I would like to know how to install it back on Ubuntu 14.04 :(

The e-mail that I am getting from the server is:

Failed to run /usr/share/webmin/virtualmin-awstats/ : No such file or directory at /etc/webmin/virtualmin-awstats/ line 12.

Thanks, Mihail

Try running apt-get install webmin-virtualmin-awstats as root

It didn't work and I try to clean the log files from /etc/awstats folder and I messed up even more the awstats setup. Now is returning "Failed to save enabled features : The plugin AWstats reporting cannot be used : The template AWstats configuration file /etc/awstats/awstats.model.conf does not exist. "which means I deleted by mistake the awstats template files from virtualmin setup. There is a way to get them back from one of you guys ?


You may also want to ensure you have the awstats package installed.

This fellow here describes how he resolved the issue you're seeing:

However, it looks like you're using Virtualmin GPL there... if you're using Virtualmin GPL, and you had any additional questions, we'd encourage you to use the Forums for support.

We monitor the Forums, along with lots of wonderful folks in the community. Thanks!

Hi support,

I just moved the server to a new one and I just noticed that the awstats issue still persists.

Can I have a file called "awstats.model.conf" that I can modify for my needs ? Because what is happening all the *.conf files have been deleted by mistake and now the awstats plugin is not working anymore

Thanks Mihail
