Statistics in Plesk is counted by means of the /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/statistics utility, which is run by cron every day.

In Plesk 8 and previous versions
cron job for statistics is placed in the 'root' user crontab:

7 4 * * * /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/statistics >/dev/null 2>&1

Since Plesk 8.1
it is located in /etc/cron.daily/50plesk-daily:

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/statistics >/dev/null 2>&1

So, make sure that statistics cron job exists and crond is running:

# ps -ax | grep crond | grep -v grep

and check cron logs (/var/log/cron) for records about the statistics utility executions.

Also, you can try to run the utility manually and look for errors. Make sure that there are no apache logs bigger than 2 GB. It may cause webalizer to fail.

Make sure that all database directories in $MYSQL_VAR_D (usually /var/lib/mysql) have read/write permissions to 'mysql' user.
