I have a problem. I have a domain I no longer control call it :
my-old-domain-now-not-mine.com and a web.log file currently residing on my workstation
from an old Apache server it spans 5 years and I need a report that spans 5 years
How can I run awstats -update to allow the whole 5 years??

I saw a parameter of $AllowFullYearView but I see no way to regenerate the html based report for the 5 year period. I toyed with the idea of setting up /etc/hosts for the
wwwmy-old-domain-now-not-mine.com as 127.0.0.1 and then running against a fake but similar domain name and change its value later in the html report generated but its not ideal.

I would appreciate any suggestions where I can quickly accomplish this one time task.

Is there another tool someone could suggest that will read my long 5 year log file and report for the whole of the period of each log file I specify.

I tried SurfStats but it failed to work properly in reporting keywords etc... from the log I know to have them so not much confidence. I though I would try to contact surf stats but I do not know how good they will be in the end. It is vital I get a decent human readable report on spiders, keywords organic searches etc... but surfstats is disappointing in its demo as most of the reports are just messed up. e.g keywords

Without hacking the code around awstat won't give you what you want, if you don't want to hack you may want to consider analog or a demo version of web log expert.
