Topic: download stats - .dat file extension

Looking at:


you provide a very nice Top Ten Downloads report.

It shows download stats for the .zip and .7z files in the repository, but not the .dat files.

These .dat files are binary files used by my application to update itself (via HTTP GET).

The .dat files do show in the File Type and Pages-URL sections however.

Is there a way to get the .dat files included in the top ten section?

I could change the extension to something other than .dat if needed.

I'm not sure if the awstats.conf file applies here. Perhaps SkipFiles or NotPageList is involved?


Edit: Looks like modifying awstats.conf is the solution. I'll give it a try.

Edit: Changed the NotPageList to:
  NotPageList="css js class gif jpg jpeg png bmp ico swf dat"

but get:
  553 Can't open that file: Permission denied

when uploading. Changed permisions with ftp, but no go. Any suggestions?

Yep, I agree, the downloads stats sucks, awstats is not really designed to do that, there is not much you can do about that. The awstats config file is generated from a template, any modification will be overwritten anyway.
