Webalizer: Unable to restore run data (10)

Dear all,

I'm using Webmin, and Webalizer plugin. Days ago, webalizer works fine. But starting from yesterday, Webalizer no longer generate reports. And when I try to generate report manually using webmin, I get this message:

Running Webalizer to generate report from /etc/httpd/logs/ ..

.. Webalizer failed! See the output above for details.
Because I didn't get any details on that message, I run webalizer manually using command:

# webalizer -n
And as result, I got this message:
# webalizer -n
Error: Unable to restore run data (10)
I have few domains in this machine, and for all domains I got the same result.

Anyone has any idea(s) about what happened and how to cure it?

Few days ago I think I tried to install Perl-Small-XML using CPAN and failed.
And I installed awstats too.
Don't know whether it's related or not.

Any help appreciated.

In case anyone looking for the answer:

If you plan to use the module to analyze multiple log files, it is important to make sure that the global Webalizer configuration is set up correctly to support this. The version that comes with some Linux distributions (like Redhat) incorrectly uses absolute paths for the history and cache files that store information about previous processing runs. To fix this, follow these steps before setting the options for any log files :

1. On the module's main page, click on the Edit Global Options button at the bottom. This will take you to a form for editing options that apply to all log files.
2. In the Webalizer history file field, make sure that the second radio button is selected and webalizer.hist appears in the text box. If some absolute path like /var/stats/webalizer.hist is displayed, change it.
3. Similar, make sure that the Webalizer incremental file field is set to webalizer.current and not some full path.
4. The Webalizer DNS cache file can be left set to an absolute path if you like, so that DNS information is shared between different reports.
5. Click the Save button at the bottom of the page to record the new settings.

for detail, read
