After some consideration I decided not the use the awstats addon provided in LiteSpeed. Instead I choose to handle awstats by just using awstats to do the job.
Even though it's a good idea to include awstats in LiteSpeed I have to question why? The web server should handle what it needs to do best which is serve up pages. It doesn't need to handle the job of processing stats, awstats perl scripts handle this fine.
