This might be useful when serving file downloads or uploads using PHP.
If you’ll ever have problem with opening (fopen) and reading (fread) files larger than 2 GB in your PHP script. Check your version of scripting engine. In my case switching to 64 bit solved the problem. Please mind that this error is very hard to debug because PHP does not log anything (same as MS IIS) in such case. It simply resets client connection…

In case you ever wondered why your task returns 0x1 in Last Run Result instead of 0x0. Check if your task is trying to create any files, if it does, you must tick “Run with highest privileges” in General tab of your task properties. I’ve spent some precious time to uncover that because I’m not a native Winblows administrator 🙂

Sometimes it happens that your scheduled task on Windows missed some logs. I’ve recently had a such problem because I’ve deleted a Windows user that created AWstats task. What did I do to repair this awkward situation?
Firstly you cannot simply regenerate daily log from the past. In this case AWstats will simply skip old records. Follow this steps:
- Go to AWstats data directory (AWstats\cgi-bin\data).
- Use Windows search ability to show only problematic files (if file name is awstats102013.yoursite.txt simply type yoursite in a searchbox).
- Mark all found files and move them to the temporary location.
- Now run Windows cmd.
- Go to AWstats tools dir. In my case:
- Now create a merged log for a problematic website:
:: where xx is unique IIS webiste id logresolvemerge.pl L:\LOG_DIR\W3SVCxx\* > L:\LOG_DIR\W3SVCxx\merged.log
- Go to awstats.pl location:
w: cd w:\wwwroot\AWstats\cgi-bin\
- Parse merged file:
awstats.pl -config=yoursite -LogFile=L:\LOG_DIR\W3SVCxx\merged.log -update
- Place files from steps 2-3 back to their location. Don’t overwrite new files! Simply skip old ones.
- You should be able to see complete stats for your website.
TIP: How to dermine your webiste unique id? Simply go to IIS manager and click advanced settings in a right pane after selecting website.
