Help, I touch nothing and Piwik is down!


I got something stange!!
2 hour ago, piwik is worked well (I think)
I just check my website and I notice a red cross like a miising picture. The link was Piwik.
I’ve try to acces to piwik, but in place of login access part I got this following message:

The PDO extension is required for this adapter but not loaded


#0 /home/mtgt69/public_html/stats/libs/Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php(228): Zend_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Abstract->_connect()
#1 /home/mtgt69/public_html/stats/core/Piwik.php(1006): Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->getConnection()
#2 /home/mtgt69/public_html/stats/core/FrontController.php(233): Piwik::createDatabaseObject()
#3 /home/mtgt69/public_html/stats/index.php(51): Piwik_FrontController->init()
#4 {main}

I haven’t visit piwik long time ago but I’m sure there was nothing on my website before!!!
Any help will be really helpful!!

Thanks in advance,


Sounds like your system environment changed. Have you contacted your sysadmin?


My Piwik is back, style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif
I don’t understand, this problem was probably from my hosting company!

Thanks anyway for you quick answer!


this is the problem of the pdo extension.

check your php.ini


you will need this extension.
