Archiving Command Stopped Working

This was working fine and now it does not. Not sure how to troubleshoot this issue.

This is the archiving command:

D:\PHP\php.exe “D:\piwik\console” core:archive --accept-invalid-ssl-cer
tificate --url= --force-all-websites --force-all-peri
ods=315576000 --force-date-last-n=1000 1>e:\PiwikArchiveTask.txt

This is the Issue.

Well, doesn’t seem to exist. If it is an intranet page, make sure that the URL resolves to the Matomo server as it only seems to point to a 404 page.

➜  ~ curl -v

curl: (6) Could not resolve host:

Thank you for looking at this. I have validate that is a valid URL. The Matomo login page is displayed.


Then please check that

is a valid URL when accessing from the Matomo server. As this is the request that returns 404 during archiving.

Thank you for the help. Looks like I had a DNS issue.
