'(null)' value in Stats settings.

When you try to go to the statistics section of the back office, you're given the message:



One or more of your statistics configuration settings is incorrect.
Without these being set correctly, statistics will not operate.


Server log path is not OK
Server log filename is not OK
Store ID sub-string is not OK
Last Date/Time read is not OK

Please go to the Configure Statistics area of the back office and
correct the settings

When clicking on the link to configure your statistics, the fields for path and file name of the access logs have '(null)' as the value. Changes made on this page are not kept.
Solution ID: S03112

This problem usually indicates a problem with the statistics configuration file, often a result of overwritting the file or a shortage of disk space.
Below is the format of the statconfig.aa file that should fix the problem. This needs to be placed in the stats subdirectory of the stores data directory - *not* in the data directory itself.

After placing this file in the stats directory, you should be able to go to the "Configure Stats" page and put in the correct path and filename for the access logs, and they should stay this time.
