Migrating Data



I currently have Piwik installed on mysubdomain.myhost.com with lots of data.

I have moved hosts now and have installed a new version on Piwik on mydomain.com/analytics

Can I move my old Piwik data to my new Piwik installation, if so - how? Is it just a matter of exporting my old Piwik DB and importing this to my new Piwik DB, overwriting old data?

see How can I move Piwik from one server to another, also migrating the data from one mysql server to another? - Analytics Platform - Matomo


Thanks, although I have installed a newer version on Piwik on my new server, if I move the previous DB will it not work?

you can only have one DB, so either use the new one, or you can “move the previous one” then go to Piwik which will upgrade that old DB to the newest schema.
