Also, please check that you uploaded the awstats.pl script as an ascii file, and if you are on linux server, that you properly changed the permissions to make the script executable (probably something like 755) via the chmod command.

If you have "Order allow,deny" I don't think you need the "deny from all" line. From the Apache manual:

"Allow,Deny
    The Allow directives are evaluated before the Deny directives. Access is denied by default. Any client which does not match an Allow directive or does match a Deny directive will be denied access to the server."

This suggests that your config will allow your IP, but then check the deny line and deny everything, including your IP. Seeing as allow,deny causes access to be denied by default, try taking away the "deny from all" line in your config.
