How do I configure AWStats on centos 7 apache ?
Following this guide https://devops.ionos.com/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-awstats-on-centos-7/
I'm trying to configure AWStats but get the error
client denied by server configuration: /usr/share/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/
I think I have the apache server configured correctly? Here are the entries in my config files that seem to relate below.
Is the "require ip" and the "allow from" the address of the web client I am using to connect to my linode server? I assume so…
Thanks for the help.

I'm using apache 2.4
I played around with the ip addresses to see which ip would allow access but no luck. I finally added
Require all granted to allow access. I'll probably restrict the url with an .htaccess password.
Allow from IP address of the web client I'm connecting from?
I think you're on the right track here… You probably don't run browsers on your Linode (i.e., 127.0.0.1 and/or ::1). Your browser runs on a node in someone else's network (Comcast?). That's the thing you have to Allow from…
The caveat here is that, unless you're the network operator, your IP address is assigned via DHCP so it can change periodically. You'll have to account for that too.
