Is there a way to automate AWstats reports?
I have a small web design business and I would like to create automated stats reports to go to my clients by email every week. Does anyone know if there is a way to do that with AWstats?
Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to help you today. This is not functionality included in cPanel by default. I've looked around on the Internet for a solution and I found a script that will email the reports on the 2nd of every month but nothing to send them weekly. Depending on how the script is written you may be able to configure a cron job to run every week to produce the desired results.
Here's a link to the page with the script on it:
Generating a AWSTATS report to be emailed monthly
Please keep in mind, we have not reviewed the scripts in the above link so I cannot say with certainty that what you are trying to do is an option.
Also, you may want to recommend that your clients set up Google Analytics. You could even set up the account, and give them access to the reports. That way, anytime they wanted to see the stats on their domain they could simply look into Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is easy to set up and gives a lot more details about your visitors statistics than AWSTATS. Here's a link to Google Analytics:

I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
