Microsoft has pulled Piwik from the Web App Gallery. The Web Matrix deployment script uses a regex to get the database password. However, it's unable to parse the right "password" field in config.ini.php because the "[superuser]" section appears first. As a result, they can't deploy Piwik automatically.


  • quick fix: change the order of sections, moving the superuser section after database
  • longer term fix? remove the superuser section (i.e., move it into the users table)

quick fix sounds really good & OK!

when did they pull piwik out? let's fix it asap as this was bringing nice and different stream of users :)


I made a bunch of changes in r6106 at their request. But they pulled Piwik on 6/1 thereabouts, even though 1.7.1 was in their review queue. Anyways, I submitted 1.8.2, and after a couple of weeks, they identified the actual problem.


(In [6573]) fixes #3277 - move superuser section after database

@robocoder robocoder added this to the 1.8.3 - Piwik 1.8.3 milestone Jul 8, 2014
