HowTo delete visits out of MySQL db


(Frank) #1

Hi!
2 weeks ago I tried it in the german forum, but there was no response :frowning:

So I grab together my bad english and try it here :wink:

Is it possible to delete the first 270 or so visits on one site out of the MySQL db which have been automatically generated by the traffic generator plugin? I want to get totally rid of them, but I don’t want to mess around in the db tables without exactly knowing what to do. That will mess up everything for sure…

regards

Yes you can run and delete these visits manually if you wish. See also: How to - Analytics Platform - Matomo

Thank you, Matt! Deleting all piwik_archive_* tables wiped out the ‘visitor plugin’ data.

After using piwik for 4 weeks now I can say that this is a great tool. No more use of google anal…ytics :wink:

best regards
