Import PIWIK database into other PIWIK instance


#1

I’ve got a complete PIWIK database dump and need to analise it.

I think that the easiest way to achieve this goal would be to import this database into an instance of PIWIK of my own. However if I try just to install PIWIK and change the database configuration at config.ini.php to the one I’ve dumped it’s not going to work out.

I do not have access to the server that hosted the original PIWIK or its configurations.

I could live with the fact that I won’t be able to use PIWIK if I could decrypt de BLOBs otherwise. However using it and its plugins would be the better choice.

Can I achieve this goals?

Hi there,

However if I try just to install PIWIK and change the database configuration at config.ini.php to the one I’ve dumped it’s not going to work out.

It should work actually, did you try it?

Hey Matt, thanks for you answer. The dataset was incomplete and that’s why I was unable to work with that. The dump halted while exporting “piwik_log_visit” and I did not notice.

It’s now working. Now I have this doubt. Thanks for you help.
