Update AWStats


How can I update AWStats to the newest version? I’m using Ubuntu Hardy, there is only version 6.7 in the repositories… So it looks like I have to do it manually… Any inputs?


Well, the awstats package comes from the Ubuntu repository.

So your options are:

  1. Wait for Ubuntu to release a newer one

  2. See if it’s available in the Ubuntu backports repository: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=awstats&searchon=names&suite=hardy-updates&section=all

  3. Install it manually (perhaps by creating a .deb for it)

Those are in order of preference I think… since it’s available in the backports, that might do the trick.

I don’t see it in the backports repo. The link you provided is the updates repo with a security fix to awstats.
So I will have a look at manually updating it…

Oops, sorry about that, I knew I was clicking too fast :slight_smile:

But yeah, if you want a more recent version and it’s not available in the main or backports repo, a manual install is probably a good direction.
