I installed AWstats on my static site last night (1-22-11). My site has been up and running for about two weeks, but AWstats is only showing activity from 1-21-11 forward. Is there any way to get the site stats for the two previous weeks? Is AWstats "retroactive" at all in pulling stats, or does it just show stats from the time it was installed?

Yes. The basics are outlined in the official docs,
On our platform we take care of log management, logs are located in ~/logs/. Awstats is designed to fetch the data from the logs in ~/logs and build its own log file in ./data/log. This is accomplished by a script 'update_awstats.sh'. To do what you would want you should make a copy of this script, modify the paths to include the other logs, and than run it once.
