Please help me... config.ini.php

Hi all,

is the “salt” in the config.ini.php in use? I cant find any informations about this. Im using 2.16.0

Many thanks for your help.

Yes, e.g. to make sure that the browser fingerprint is different across different Piwik instances (privacy protection). See also Search · salt · GitHub

Hi @quba,

thanks for your answer. It sounds like i can change the salt everytime i want? Or should it be never changed?

Background: We re using multiple Piwik-Instances and wanna make a copy of the config-file for a “new instance”.

Many thanks for your help… :slight_smile:

It shouldn’t break anything. It’s even recommended to have different salt in different instances (if you don’t want to somehow detect same visitors across all instances).
