Can I change the port ?
The dafault port on which HLstats is listening on is 27500. This port can be changed if your webhost or some other settings doesn't allow this port.
To change this port edit hlstats.conf and change there the PORT setting ther to your desired port.
You have also to change this port at the log command in the server.cfg oder autoexec.cfg at your game server. Otherwise the log data will not go to the right port.
