Web server install- New Piwik install

Hi everyone

I haven’t installed Piwik as yet, but we are going to be installing it on a seperate VM.

Our websites are hosted by various hosting companies - Piwik will be on a separate VM from any of them.

Do I still need to install a web server software (nginx in this case) on the VM? Does it need a web server to run or do I just point it to the servers/sites being hosted?


Piwik needs a webserver
