When somebody has configured there MySQL server with sql_mode ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY enabled, Piwik chrashes all the time with errors that there are columns SELECTed which aren't specified in the GROUP BY.
I've created a small patch which can detect this setting on the MySQL server and configures the connection Piwik uses, to use the default sql_mode in order to make Piwik work like expected.

Attachment: This patch detects ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY and disables it.

I'd rather fix whatever SQL query is causing the error.

(In [3185]) fixes #1733 - add non-aggregated columns to GROUP BY clause


I am seeing this issue again in Piwik 1.11.1 and MariaDB 5.5.30 with ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY enabled. Removing the ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY option from sql_mode made Piwik work properly again.

Can you create a new bug for your problem and post the full error message and more information.
