Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
I created a cronjob in de cron.d directory as explained on the How to Set up Auto-Archiving of Your Reports - Analytics Platform - Matomo page.
su www-data -c "/usr/bin/php5 /path/to/piwik/console core:archive --url=http://example.org/piwik/"
Testing the cronjob with su www-data user. It asks for a password of www-data and as far as i know it is not safe to give www-data user a real password. It is meant not to have a password to keep apache boxed in on the system.
No emails and recent data
I setup the cronjob yesterday and did not receive any emails (and i have not set an error.log in the cronjob) so it should email me on errors.I also don’t see a archive.log file where i said to create one (/var/log/ directory). Also my data is not up to date at all that possibly shows that the cronjob isn’t doing anything actually. When i set archiving to browser it shows me the current data i need to see but not with the cronjob option with the 3600 seconds set.
Do i miss explainations or mods or settings for all these things??
Can’t find a proper answer anywhere and also for the 2.10.0 version of piwik.
Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
Fixed the email problem. Using sendmail on the ubuntu install. Only problem is when i send a pdf report manually i receive it but in the manager i receive a message that it failed to open the stream and sent email was not successfull.
I keep working on it but tips and tricks are welcome.
