Hi, guys,
   Installed Awstats (Version: 5.6-1), works fine. However, I just
noticed that it only generates monthly report. So when a new month
starts, all the past statistics are gone, and everything starts from 0
(e.g. number of visits, domains/countries, etc).

starts, but what I want is to see all the historical data from a single

Not sure if I understand your question so take this advice
with a grain of salt.

I run a cron job every morning at 8am:

0 8 * * *    /usr/lib/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -config=yourdomain.com -update

I don't think this is what they OP wanted. I think his problem is that
all previous stats are overwritten upon a new run. What I do is use the
-dir and -date options provided by awstats_buildstaticpages.pl.

Do a lynx /usr/share/doc/awstats/html/awstats_tools.html to read more.

I don't see how the original stats could be overwritten though. I've never had the problem being discussed and until the latest version (5.9) never even told it to explicitly keep a history.

I do have previous examples but I would have to search back up cd's for them.
