I'm pretty new to dealing with server logs, and I've probably made a mistake. I just installed awstats, and one aspect doesn't look right.

When I look at the "Hosts" area, I expect to see 10 IP's, and a link to a list of 100's or 1000's of IP's. Instead, I see two items:

  • www.mydomainname.com
  • myservername.myhostname.com
    These aren't IP addresses, and they're not visitors - they're my server!

    Any ideas where I may have gone wrong?

    Right, they are your host(s). You just need to learn the terminology, it may not be what you expect.

    I'm not familiar with awstats but try looking for domains or visitors.

    That's the confusing part. I have awstats installed in another server, and the "Hosts" area details all the IP's that hit my site, showing the Top 10 and a link to a list of all IP's for the given time period.

    But on this site, I just installed it and ran it on the live log, and I see the above ...

    Now it gets even weirder. I emptied the history data, and ran awstats on some archived log files instead of the live log ... and now, it shows IP's like I'd expected it to.

    I completely give up. I don't know what's going on. It is really strange as you say.
