Piwik Development Environment

This configuration makes it very easy to start with Piwik development or to give Piwik a try in your local environment. It'll setup a virtual machine including everything you need to run Piwik. The Piwik project itself will be cloned into a shared/synced folder www/piwik which makes it easy to change files within your host IDE. You even do not need to run the VM to change something.

  2. Clone this repository including all submodules (git clone --recursive

  4. Execute the command vagrant up within a vagrant/$box folder

  6. Don't forget to update your local hosts file. You have to add "apache.piwik" as well as "nginx.piwik".


Open "http://apache.piwik" or "http://nginx.piwik:8080" after installation. You'll see the Piwik installation screen. XHProf is available under "http://xhprof.piwik".
