I found a little shortcut to view past month’s detailed stats view within awstats.

Simply append the following url paramiters into your awstats url ‘?year=2006&month=09’.

Example
http://stats.example.com/
http://stats.example.com/?year=2006&month=09

I’m supprized another user of awstats has not promoted these keywords yet in google! I’m even further suprized there is not already an addon component or patch which adds a javascript forward / back navigation links to use these urls hooks to provide clickable functionality (which could only assume the stats would exist) as a hack but a functional hack.

Right back to why has awstats reporting views have stagnated while other non-free packages sway users with higher quality / relavance in report views …

Awstats url sucess!
