I’m trying to move my Piwik installation to a new server, moving my database too. I’m following the procedure of the documentation. I arrived at this stage:
during the installation process, you will be asked to provide the mysql server, login, password and table prefix. It is very important that you specify the same table prefix (by default, “piwik_”). Piwik will detect that the tables are present in the database and all your existing websites and reports will be automatically detected.
Piwik detects the tables, but the only solutions proposed are then:
- go back to the previous page and define a new prefix for the tables
- erase detected tables.
I don’t have the option to keep the tables.
What can I do? Erase the tables, complete the installation and then upload my old database again?
