I have a Kohana backend application which uses Piwik API to show tracking statistics.
Calling the API with PHP creates a directory /tmp/templates_c in my application public folder. This directory should not be created in my application folder but in Piwik installation folder.
First, i have coded exactly what it is described on the wiki page : http://dev.piwik.org/trac/wiki/API/CallingTechniques
The only difference between the example and my work is that my application doesn't directly include Piwik : my application and piwik are separated apache subdomains.
One thing : in the Piwik code, folders like tmp/templates_c are relatives, not absolutes. They should be prefixed with PIWIK_INCLUDE_PATH.
This a real bug and not a code mistake as i have exactly done the same thing than in the wiki example.
(In [fixes #2001 - add comments and flesh out example; confirmed that tmp/templates_c is prefixed by PIWIK_USER_PATH and that the PIWIK_ defines are documented (wiki:API/CallingTechniques) links to [wiki:API/IncludePiwikInYourProject])
(In ) refs #2001 - nope, not this one (called at install)
