AWSTATS problems


Hi all, i download awstats

it install ok ,

some how i cant seem to pull up the page

here is what i've done, can some one explain what i'm doing wrong

Code:
[root@rockinghamgateway downloads]# ls
awstats-6.1-1.noarch.rpm
[root@rockinghamgateway downloads]# rpm -ivh awstats-6.1-1.noarch.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:awstats                ########################################### [100%]

----- AWStats 6.1 - Laurent Destailleur -----
AWStats files have been installed in /usr/local/awstats

If first install, follow instructions in documentation
(/usr/local/awstats/docs/index.html) to setup AWStats in 3 steps:
Step 1 : Install and Setup manually or with configure.pl
Step 2 : Build/Update Statistics with awstats.pl
Step 3 : Read Statistics

[root@rockinghamgateway downloads]# cd /usr/local/awstats
[root@rockinghamgateway awstats]# ls
docs  README.TXT  tools  wwwroot
[root@rockinghamgateway awstats]# cd tools/
[root@rockinghamgateway tools]# ls
awstats_buildstaticpages.pl  configure.pl        maillogconvert.pl   xslt
awstats_exportlib.pl         httpd_conf          urlaliasbuilder.pl
awstats_updateall.pl         logresolvemerge.pl  webmin
[root@rockinghamgateway tools]# configure.pl
-bash: configure.pl: command not found
[root@rockinghamgateway tools]# ./configure.pl

----- AWStats configure 1.0 (build 1.32) (c) Laurent Destailleur -----
This tool will help you to configure AWStats to analyze statistics for
one web server. You can try to use it to let it do all that is possible
in AWStats setup, however following the step by step manual setup
documentation (docs/index.html) is often a better idea. Above all if:
- You are not an administrator user,
- You want to analyze downloaded log files without web server,
- You want to analyze mail or ftp log files instead of web log files,
- You need to analyze load balanced servers log files,
- You want to 'understand' all possible ways to use AWStats...
Read the AWStats documentation (docs/index.html).

-----> Running OS detected: Linux, BSD or Unix

-----> Check for web server install

Enter full config file path of your Web server.
Example: /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
Example: /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
Example: c:\Program files\apache group\apache\conf\httpd.conf
Config file path ('none' to skip web server setup):
> /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

-----> Check and complete web server config file '/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf'
  Add 'Alias /awstatsclasses "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/classes/"'
  Add 'Alias /awstatscss "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/css/"'
  Add 'Alias /awstatsicons "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/icon/"'
  Add 'ScriptAlias /awstats/ "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/"'
  Add '<Directory>' directive
  AWStats directives added to Apache config file.

-----> Update model config file '/etc/awstats/awstats.model.conf'
  File awstats.model.conf updated.

-----> Need to create a new config file ?
Do you want me to build a new AWStats config/profile
file (required if first install) [y/N] ? y

-----> Define config file name to create
What is the name of your web site or profile analysis ?
Example: www.mysite.com
Example: demo
Your web site, virtual server or profile name:
> www.rockinghamgateway.com

-----> Create config file '/etc/awstats/awstats.www.rockinghamgateway.com.conf'
 Config file /etc/awstats/awstats.www.rockinghamgateway.com.conf created.

-----> Restart Web server with '/sbin/service httpd restart'
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting httpd:                                            [  OK  ]

-----> Add update process inside a scheduler
Sorry, configure.pl does not support automatic add to cron yet.
You can do it manually by adding the following command to your cron:
/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -update -config=www.rockinghamgate
Or if you have several config files and prefer having only one command:
/usr/local/awstats/tools/awstats_updateall.pl now
Press ENTER to continue...


A SIMPLE config file has been created: /etc/awstats/awstats.www.rockinghamgatewa
You should have a look inside to check and change manually main parameters.
You can then manually update your statistics for 'www.rockinghamgateway.com' wit
> perl awstats.pl -update -config=www.rockinghamgateway.com
You can also read your statistics for 'www.rockinghamgateway.com' with URL:
> http://localhost/awstats/awstats.pl?...hamgateway.com

Press ENTER to finish...

[root@rockinghamgateway tools]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
here is the error i get

Error: AWStats database directory defined in config file by 'DirData' parameter (/var/lib/awstats) does not exist or is not writable.

Setup ('/etc/awstats/awstats.www.rockinghamgateway.com.conf' file, web server or permissions) may be wrong.
Check config file, permissions and AWStats documentation (in 'docs' directory).

as to my other problems ( quota ) i got that going.

TT

1. Did you check that it exists?
2. If (1) is true, then check the permissions of it. A security-wise lax solution is changing it to allow everyone to write to that directory: chmod a+w /var/lib/awstats. Another solution would be changing owner and group of that directory to the one the web server runs as - chown apache:apache /var/lib/awstats (assuming apache is the name for both the user and the group Apache runs as). This will only help if you do the updating through Apache though.
