If your logs are the same as mine then the problem is a double space
that nginx leaves in each log entry between the status code and the
bytes sent. I tried various ways of specifying the double space but
without success - it seems they collapse spaces in the logformat
settings line but not in the file itself - so I gave up and now just
perl -pi -e 's/ / /g' ./nginx.access.log
before an awstats run. With that, I can just use this configuration
LogFormat="%host %other %logname %time1 %methodurl %code %bytesd
%refererquot %uaquot %otherquot"
Which is the default with an added %otherquot for the final
http_x_forwarded_for that nginx adds by default.
I guess by specifying the log format in nginx I could eliminate the
problem, but like you I always come to it with a load of existing
logfiles to process.
