I just installed Piwik using Dreamhost’s One-Click Installer.
When I was able to access the app, I logged in using the credentials mailed to me by the Dreamhost system.
The first thing I wanted to do was update the administrator password, so I clicked on the “Settings” link.
That loaded a page with the single line:
User ‘anonymous’ doesn’t exist.
I tried inserting a new user record into the database directly, but that user’s credentials didn’t work when I tried to log in, and admittedly, I’m not MySQL wiz.
Any idea why the Settings page would fail right out of the gates like that?
