To use AWStats CGI script, you need the following requirements:
* Your server must log web access in a log file you can read.
* To run awstats, from command line, your operating system must be able
  to run perl scripts (.pl files).
* Perl module "Encode" must be available.
To run awstats as a CGI (for real-time
  statistics), your web server must also be able to run such scripts.
  If not, you can solve this by downloading last Perl version at: (Windows) (All OS)
