I have migrated from a CentOS 5 VPS with HostGator (running cPanel), to running CentOS 7.2 with Plesk on Azure. The latter is working great, far faster than my old setup.

I have successfully run all website migrations using the Plesk Migrator Extension. However, the one thing I have not got back is the awstats. On close insepction, the place that the HostGator CentOS / cPanel install and the place that the new Azure CentOS / Plesk install store the files is different. There seems to be a shift in how the folders are structured too, and the labelling format of the files.

I have appropriately renamed the awstats txt files and dumped them in what would seem the correct location on the new setup. I have run the rebuild command listed here: https://kb.plesk.com/en/115476, but it only rebuilds for the months since the migration took place (Aug & Sep 2016).

My approach I can only assume is wrong. This is how I have always done it in the past (I've migrated providers a few times), but it doesn't seem to work - or maybe i just need to wait until awstats auto-runs some kind of reacknowledgement task every 24 hours and imports to it's db?

I did read somewhere there is a perl script that can be run - but I can't find this, and don't currently have perl installed on the server.

Cheers in advance for any helpful thoughts!
