first of all I would like to say that I have read the FAQ and some previous posts concerning the speed of Piwik.However, I still need to understand why it is so slow.
The website I installed piwik on is a dedicated web server. Piwik is managed by an Apache virtual server on the same machine. For the sake of clarity:
It is terribly slow:
- the dashboad requires around 30 seconds to load, but this would not be a problem.
- when I download a page from www.domain.it, everything downloads fine, the page is displayed, but the connection to piwik takes over 30 seconds to complete.
- when I connect to piwik.domain.it, the page is displayed after longer than 30 seconds too.
I have already set the session management to be carried out on the db instead of the local filesystem.
Is there some configuration file I need to inspect in order to improve the piwik speed. As it is now it is unusable.
Furthermore, every once in a while, the Map widget says:
The Piwik configuration file couldn’t be found and you are trying to access a Piwik page.
» You can install Piwik now
If you installed Piwik before and have some tables in your DB, don’t worry, you can reuse the same tables and keep your existing data!
