note the two files with dates in the filenames. that's where the info is stored (and there's a lot of it!) there may be some way to get AWstats to write a seperate file when it runs, but then the hits would only be updated when the cron job runs.
I think the easiest way is to just use a separate counter for public use.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
