I’ve been using Piwik for a few months and works great.
I have Piwik installed on a vps, and I have other server logs imported into the vps, and processed on the vps.
Here is my import command
python /home/######/public_html/misc/log-analytics/import_logs.py --url=http://piwik-url-com/ /usr/logs/access.log --idsite=#### --enable-http-redirects --exclude-path="/wp-login.php" --recorder-max-payload-size=2000
As long as I don’t use “-enable-bots” then the logs should ignore bot visits, correct?
I’m also comparing the numbers and it has become quite a task. Comparing Piwik, to WordPress stats, to Google Analyatics…most of the numbers are close, but I want to put more faith Piwiks numbers than anything esle.
Also…if someone is using CloudFlare…how does it effect those numbers since essentially all the visitors would be coming from the same IP’s?
Thanks to everyone that can answer my questions.
