Installing on Dreamhost

(Leander) #1

Hi, sorry for this lay question, but I am trying to set Piwik up on a shared Dreamhost server and get the following error:

Required PHP configuration (php.ini)
(OK) session.auto_start=0
(Error) always_populate_raw_post_data=-1
(Hint) To prevent some critical issue, you must set the following in your php.ini file: always_populate_raw_post_data=-1
After making this change, restart your web server.

However, I cannot access the php.ini file to change it.

Please help. Thank you so much, Leander

Hi there,

please contact Dreamhost to ask them about this. it’s important for Piwik to work that always_populate_raw_post_data=-1 is set. this is also important for some other apps which may break without it. Ideally dreamhost would change their default php config on PHP 5.6 to have this setting.
