Installation not in docroot


(heinetz) #1

Hello Forum,

i want to install pikik for my website:

www.example.org

The DocumentRoot of this website is:

/srv/www/example_01/

For the first try i copied piwik-directory to:

/srv/www/example_01/_piwik/

…, pasted the generated code into my website and could see tracking works
under:

www.example.org/_piwik

That seemes to be the default-way for a pikik-installation. But to realize
handling different Versions there are allways different Versions of my
Website in different DocRoot-Folders:

/srv/www/example_01/ <- www.example.org
/srv/www/example_02/
/srv/www/example_03/ <- preview.example.org

… and every time a programmed an update for www.example.org i first
let the domain preview.example.org point to the updated version (in
the example to folder:

/srv/www/example_03/

… and after testing the new version i let the domain www.example.org
pont to this folder.

Because i don’t want to update the running piwik-folder also I would like
to install piwik not into DocumentRoot-Folder but in another Folder an
the Server under:

/srv/www/_config/piwik/

… reachable under config.example.org/piwik and later also under
piwik.example.org. The Folder:

/srv/www/_config/

is protected by .htaccess into it.

(How) is that possible ?

best,
heinetz

You can install Piwik in a subfolder.

thank you for your tipp. i’de found tha t yet and insallend the plugin HttpAuthLogin.
First a had the problem, that my login didn’t work anymore, but after creating
.htaccess and .htpasswd based on the example and then reloading the server
displayed it’s login-dialoge and I could login and the piwik-startpage was loaded.

great success!

… but now i cannot logout anymore ;(

but do need the plugin for what I want to do, anyhow?

seems as not:

i disabled the plugin. after that the login/logout worked like before
activating. the tracking into htassess-proteced piwik-directory seems
to work. though i didn’t login to the piwik-directory the request seems
to be tracked!

hi,

the installation to the .htaccess protected folder under config.example.org
works. i just adepted the .htaccess-file to allow request for piwik.

my new problem ist, that a part of my website are https-requests. the generated
piwik-tag trys to call config.example.org per https and that doesn’t work, because
there config.example.org is not ssl-certified.

i tried following:

i created a symbolic link www.example.org/_piwik that shows to config.example.org/piwik, modidied the used piwik-tag but tracking doesn’t work.

is it possible to intall piwik ‘into’ a symbolic link ?

best,
heinetz
