AWStats isn't really a web-application. It's a collection of
Perl scripts supposed to be run from command line (usually it
run periodically by a cron daemon). AWStats generates static
html files that can be served by a web server, like nginx.
The Unit Perl module is used to run web applications that
supports generic PSGI specification. Bugzilla is a famous
example of such application.
The "script" option specifies a path to Perl script with PSGI
compatible interface. This interface specifies how a Perl
application should receive a request and how it should return
a response. AWStats doesn't need that.
