thanks for your answer, so if I get it right, I need to go to my domain name provider, buy a domain name such as www.mypiwiktest.com and modify the DNS in order for it to point to 127.0.0.1, am I right?
As I said, just for testing you can create your own domain and put it into your computers hosts file. Your computer will look at that first before it goes out to a DNS server to look it up. Take a look at http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/27350/beginner-geek-how-to-edit-your-hosts-file/ for details. This is for Windows but can be used for any other computer as well (The location of the hosts file will be different).
first of all, thanks I succeeded in creating www.mypiwiktesting.com (I did not know we could do that locally
I tried again to track one of my page with the following code (but nothing is happening, any ideas?) :
// -- Piwik Tracking API init --
PiwikTracker::$URL = 'http://www.mypiwiktesting.com/piwik/';
echo '<img src="'. str_replace("&","&", Piwik_getUrlTrackPageView( $idSite = 1, $customTitle = 'This title will appear in the report Actions > Page titles')) . '" alt="" />'
Thanks Valdhor once more for your help. Well I am currently writing a book about Piwik and I would like to test all his functionalities by providing tutorials to the users. I am testing all functionalitites before showing them to the readers. That’s why I wanted to test it by myself first.
I am going to insert the code on a real server in order to see if it works or not.
