I’ve just installed Matomo for the first time. To say the least the “5 minute” installation promoted has not materialized. I am now into this for about 12 hours of troubleshooting and becoming very frustrated.
After reviewing all relevant log files I couldn’t find an error explaining what was / wasn’t happening.
Then I enabled all query logging as described here. I’ve quickly found a problem.
Numerous “SELECT” queries are successful in what I perceive to be in preparation for recording hits to my web site and also in the dashboard for viewing the data (although I receive the prompt ’ No data has been recorded yet’).
What is conspicuously missing are the extreme lack of “INSERT INTO” queries that would begin to compile the usage of the web site.
I see in the access log where this should be triggered matching the logging of various SELECT queries in preparation for recording the hit. Is there a simple explanation & fix to actually start recording data?
The demo makes this look like an amazing statistical system. It is why I’ve stuck with it trying to find the problem. I am lost. I don’t know what else to do in order to start recording the hits.
