I'm tryiing to solve some missing icons and styles in my AWstats static pages.

I'm running an Ubuntu 12.04 server with several virtual hosts. Below is the default apache2 config (/ect/apache2/sites-available/default) and in the default awstats.conf I have set the icons dir to "/awstatsicons".

Despite all this, when I try to open any of them straight in the browser (by following a link, for instance - http://www.example.com/awstatsicons/other/awstat_icon6.png) I get an error 404.

Could you help me, please?

    Alias /awstatsclasses/ /usr/share/awstats/lib/
    Alias /awstatsicons/  /usr/share/awstats/icon/
    Alias /awstatscss/ /usr/share/awstats/css/
    ScriptAlias /awstats/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
    Options ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    <Directory "/usr/share/awstats">
            Options +Indexes +MultiViews
            AllowOverride None
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all

I have set the owner of /usr/share/awstats to www-data:www-data and the permissions to 775.

Please post the entries of error.log and access.log of your unning apache while accessing the URL. –  chaos Dec 11 '13 at 6:37
Hi, chaos, I tailed both logs and then tried opening one of the "missing" icons in a separate browser tab, but there appeared no new entries in either error.log or access.log. –  zkvvoob Dec 12 '13 at 16:10
