Problem installing - Required PHP configuration


(John) #1

Hi,

I am trying to install Piwik on a Linux based shared hosting platform (Fasthosts). I am getting an issue with:

always_populate_raw_post_data=-1

To prevent some critical issue, you must set the following in your php.ini file: always_populate_raw_post_data=-1
After making this change, restart your web server.

I have added this line to the php.ini file in the root directory. I also tried the user.ini file, but everything try it doesnt recognize it. I’ve spoke to the host and they suggested adding it to the htaccess file but that just returns a 500 internal server error.

Have I missed anything?

Thanks!

They probably refer to configuration changes. You can set configurations inside .htaccess file inside the web root.

To assure what’s in the 500 error code, you should check your error_log. Ask them wher’s is stored.
