since I cannot update my v1.x Piwik to the V2.x branch (update always ends in errors) I thinking about solutions
I can find as beginner.
1st one was to export V1 DB and migrate it into my local Xampp (I created a new db, imported via mysql the backup db and fitted the config.ini but that did not work…).
2nd thought was since I can still use and access the live Piwik though the update did not work (I had to re-upload a backup of the piwik folder but DB seem to be still ticking though I did not use any backups here) I thought about renaming the working piwik folder to piwikV1 and to vreate a new one calles piwik or piwikV2.
You get the idea.
Into the new folder I would copy a fresh Piwik 2.03 or whatever new version I can grab with a new and fresh DB!
So, in theory I could access at least the new Piwik that starts a new DB with new tracking infos…and perhaps I could access the old one too for information gathering purposes
But since I am a newbee to all of this I do not know if there are some or crucial issues with the tracking code or how Piwik works or what ever
Could some one please explain things to me?
