Cameron: After using Webalizer for the past 8 or 9 years, I have also
been using AWStats, since January. There are differences, in the way
the 2 programs report, or, there are errors. For example, AWStats
shows fewer Unique Visitors than Webalizer does.

I am not sure if this is because of some difference in the way the
programs gather their data, or, if these are simply errors.

There are some things I like, very much, in AWStats, but, I'm not sure
how accurate it is.

differences. They should both be gathering their data from the same
