Enable Authenticated users list at AWStats

AWStats is a free powerful and featureful tool that generates advanced web, streaming, ftp or mail server statistics, graphically. I have using it lately to track web usage by loading data from the web log files. However, it does not show authenticated users which I wanted. I searched at AWStats website and found out that Authenticated users list is part of the features. And the demo have Authenticated users list too. Hmm… What should I do to turn Authenticated users list on?

Authenticated users list at AWStats

After searched here and there… I found it finally. All you need to do is changing the configuration of AWStats config file. Find below codes. And change the setting from ShowAuthenticatedUsers=0 to ShowAuthenticatedUsers=PHBL. This will enable Authenticated users list at AWStats.

# Show authenticated users chart
# Context: Web, Streaming, Ftp
# Default: 0, Possible column codes: PHBL


  1. @Denis: Hmm… I am not sure about that feature. You can refer to AWStats website for it. Or if you are using Windows server, enable security checking at IIS using Active Directory.
