Updating the website statistics by using Awstats is done with an UPDATE link found in the top center portion of the AWSTATS page. Here's a screenshot of the location:
However, you may see the following error message:
Unable to update the log. This message shows
Error: Log is currently being processed in the background. Cannot update.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that you are experiencing should you continually see this error message. Our Systems team is currently working on a resolution to stop this particular error from recurring.
What is the Source of the Error Message?
Typically, the Web Hosting Hub servers update website statistics during off-peak hours in the evening. Due to the amount of resources consumed in this process, the update for particular sites may be delayed until all of the statistics updates are completed. Additionally, if the server load/traffic is high, then statistics updates may be delayed until a later date. Usually, the update runs, but there are times when manual intervention is required.
Is there anything that I can do?
You can always request the update of your website statistics through live technical support. You will need to provide verification for your account when making the request. Please remember that even if you request a manual update, it still may require several hours to run the update for your website statistics.
