Did the automatic update very early this morning. Seemed to go fine other than some housekeeping (looks like someone has added a check for files in document root which are not in the approved list). So I deleted those as instructed and it seemed happy.
But looking this evening I discover that we’ve only had 58 visitors all day which is … unlikely. I tried:
- Accessing the site over mobile data (as we don’t log hits from our own IP address). Made no difference.
- Updated the code fragment on each page (the version we had was quite old I think). Again made no difference.
Looking at the hit logs I can see that users are accessing piwik.js or piwip.php as they use the site but something’s no right. Any suggestions as to where I should start looking for clues? TIA
ETA: it’s OK, I’ve tracked it down - it was a problem with the hourly cron job
