Urchin 5 to Piwik


We are decommissioning a Windows 2003 Server which ran Urchin 5 for only two websites. I’d like to backup the IISLogs and import the data into Piwik.

So far, on a LinuxMint Virtual Machine, I’ve successfully installed LAMP, Python 2.6, and the latest release of Piwik (as of 03/23/2014). I’ve successfully configured website1.com in Piwik, though no data is obviously appearing in the portal yet. On my Linux machine, I’ve relocated the www directory to the following:


I access the Piwik portal from the webaddress:


I’ve successfully run the following command:

python /home/username/www/piwik/misc/log-analytics/import_logs.py

Now I am just confused as what is the next command line I should run to import the IIS logs into Piwik. And, do I first need to copy the IIS logs to a specific directory? (If so, where?)

FYI, I have a ton of IIS logs dating back from 2006, and would like to get them all into Piwik if its possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
