Heatingmap plugin and Adapter

I have tried to install Heatingmap plugin and PIWIK installation.

Which Adapter should be used as there are both two options available and decision should be long term.


  1. PDO/MySQL
  2. MSQLi

Currently it is PHP56 and it will be PHP7.

Also quoted parameter (error message) has been removed from PHP 7. always_populate_raw_post_data = -1


I’d recommend you to use PDO as it is the more modern way of accessing the database.

Starting with PHP7 you won’t need to set always_populate_raw_post_data = -1 as the setting was removed and PHP behaves as expected by default.

Thank you for all support.
