Q: Is the state file produced by Stone Steps Webalizer backward-compatible?

A:No. The webalizer.current file produced by Stone Steps Webalizer contains some additional information, such as user agent visitor counts, and is not compatible with the state file produced by the original version of the Webalizer (2.01-10). The first line of the state file may be used to determine the version of the Webalizer that was used to generate the file. For example:

# Stone Steps Webalizer v2.1.10.6 Incremental Data - 12/24/2003 20:57:05

If you already have another version of the Webalizer installed, you need to back up and delete the existing webalizer.current file and reprocess last month's log files using Stone Steps Webalizer.
