I just installed piwik 0.5.5 on a local development server to try it out.
XAMPP on a windows XP machine
Apache/2.2.11 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8i
No issues during installation (I selected mysqli instead of PDO; otherwise standard install). There is basically no traffic data for the site since it’s a development server (< 10 hits from me clicking around to test it).
But the app takes forever to do anything! Clicking dashboard and the widgets or pages load over the course of minutes. I mean, I clicked it before writing this forum post and it still hasn’t loaded. It eventually does load, but what do I have setup incorrectly here? The same system/db, etc. handles tables with hundreds of thousands of rows no problem. The demo on piwik.org works fine for me.
I tried truncating the archive tables, but it did not improve things. This occurs in firefox / IE / chrome. I have one website set up on it (http : // localhost/mydevdir). I put the standard JS tracking into two php files.
I don’t think the archiving / cron route is a reasonable thing to consider speeding things up since it crawls when there is no data to load! Any help would be greatly appreciated - I would really like to get this working and get away from GA.
Thanks a bunch in advance.
