The user config file cannot only define a variable, it has to define the whole "category" of variables #5446

In the config.ini.php, it is not possible to set a configuration settings in a config file without setting the whole category in this config file.

We should have some sort of merging that would make possible to set only a sub configuration variable from the global.ini.php into the config.ini.php. This way, during an upgrade, we could keep only the config/config.ini.php and overwrite the other config files with the updated piwik version and we would keep the user changes.


In global.ini.php [Test]

value1=test1 value2=test2

In config.ini.php it is NOT YET possible to change only value1 doing something like [Test]


Currently the user has to paste the whole category to change only this variable [Test]

value1=test1edited value2=test2

Solution: we should merge the config file before reading them using parse_ini_file?


fixed and added test in 930
