I have searched and not found this question. Please point me to it if it’s been asked.
I am stuck on the first page of the installation process.
Piwik couldn't write to some directories.
Try to Execute the following commands on your server, to allow Write access on these directories:
chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/piwik
chmod -R 0755 /var/www/html/piwik/tmp
chmod -R 0755 /var/www/html/piwik/tmp/templates_c/
chmod -R 0755 /var/www/html/piwik/tmp/cache/
chmod -R 0755 /var/www/html/piwik/tmp/assets/
chmod -R 0755 /var/www/html/piwik/tmp/tcpdf/
If this doesn't work, you can try to create the directories with your FTP software, and set the CHMOD to 0755 (or 0777 if 0755 is not enough). To do so with your FTP software, right click on the directories then click permissions.
I don’t have a www-data user, so I have tried root and my own user.
There are no files in /tmp/. I am wondering if the latest release is incomplete or something b/c there is just nothing there.
My apologies - I don’t have any experience of using forums.
Regarding your comments:
At the beginning it was exactly how you suggested with 0 results. I changed it to your recommended code - still no visitors are being registered. Can be something else wrong?
I get this error when i try to install the app.
