Flexible configuration option


(mvolpe) #1

Is there any way to install Piwik on 2 servers, with split functionality, in such a way one server is only devoted to collecting hits from tagged pages, while the other is only devoted to access the DB, manage user access profiles, widgets and so on ?

This option would greatly improve piwik, both in terms of security and flexibility
Thanks

do you mean having 2 database servers, or 1 DB server used to write from one server, and to read + manager users/sites from another server?

I mean having the following configuration:

  • 1 server hosting the DB and an install of piwik only to read / show data and manage the configurations
  • one or more servers for collecting hits from pages and writing on the DB.

What do you think about it ? I guess it only needs a special configuration of the application with the different roles
