Matomo is updating the tracking-data only after one day


I’m setting up Matomo for our universities website. The tracking works fine per se , but the tracking-data is only shown in Matomo after one day. I did a lot of research but I didn’t find anything that could help me to fix that. Our testers want the data updatet all 5 minutes. Is there some configuration that I’ve missed, where I could set the update time to 5 minutes?

Best Regards,

Every 5 minutes can be specified with */5 * * * * as you can see e.g. on
