This subject will teach you how to access Awstats without cPanel in a simple to understand manner.

This post is definitely for people who want to access and view Awstats without having to sign in to cPanel.

This is how we get AWStats without logging into cPanel:

1. To begin, go to http://awstats.sourceforge.net and download Awstats onto your computer.

2. Make a folder and move the contents into it.

3. Upload the contents of the /cgi-bin and /icon folders into the domain’s root using File Manager (in cPanel) or FTP. The two files can be found in the “wwwroot” folder.

4. Change the permissions of the awredir.pl and awstats.pl files in the /cgi-bin folder to 755. We strongly advise that the /cgi-bin folder be password protected to ensure that only authorised users have access to it.

5. Now, either edit the cPanel-created file /tmp/awstats/awstats.mydomain.com.conf. or download it to your PC and edit it (mydomain.com should be your domain)

6. Change the ‘DirIcons’ line to DirIcons=”/icon/” and upload it back to the /cgi-bin folder using your preferred text editor.

7. That’s all there is to it! You can now view your website/domain statistics by going to http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=mydomain.com (mydomain.com will be your domain name)

Furthermore, a subdomain such as statis.mydomain.com can be used to view the Awstats. Simply create a subdomain and forward the URL http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?config=mydomain.com to it.

We sincerely hope that you must now have a clear idea of accessing the Awstats without cPanel. However, if you are still facing any difficulty in the procedure mentioned above, feel free to reach out to the Webhosting UK Team for proactive support 24×7
