Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Hooking Piwik up to its own database, part of WordPress Plugins: Analytics (2014).
…This takes me to the system check page, where PIWIK will go through your current…server setup, and find out if everything is in place, so that it can work properly.…What you should be seeing here is a long…list of green check marks, meaning everything is working properly.…If you don't see green check marks.…You see red X's or other warnings.…You need to contact your hosting provider, and find out what's wrong.…Because if you are using a modern up to…date host, you should not have any problems here.…If you don't have any issues and it's all green, you can simply click next.…
And then we get to the database setup.…So, here we need to setup all the information for…the database so that Piwik can talk to the database.…And if you setup your own WordPress installation you'll notice this…is the same type of information we used when you setup WordPress.…Here, we're going to start out with a database server.…In most cases, this will be just localhost, all one word.…In some cases, your server may request you to use something else.…
