I have been without Piwik for 2 weeks now. Ever since I tried to upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. I’ve also tried to upgrade to 1.5.1 but I keep getting the same error as posted in another thread. I’m not having any luck getting help via email so I’m trying to force a new installation of Piwik as per the instructions on Installation - Analytics Platform - Matomo
It says there:
“If you install Piwik specifying an existing database containing Piwik data, the installation process will automatically detect that the Piwik tables already exist. You will be able to choose to either keep your existing data, or delete the tables and start from a clean database.”
However, I’m am not being given the choice to keep my existing data. Instead I get this:
Some tables in your database have the same names as the tables Piwik is trying to create
« Go back and define a Prefix for the Piwik Tables
Delete the detected tables »
Please advise what I need to do so I don’t lose my data.
