Slot: 1

Advanced Settings

You can include additional JavaScript snippets in the advanced
textarea. These can be found on various blog posts, or on the
official Matomo pages. Support is not provided for any customisations
you include.

To speed up page loading you may also cache the matomo.js
file locally. You need to make sure the site file system is in public
download mode.

Known issues

Drupal requirements ( tell you to configure
PHP with "session.save_handler = user", but your Matomo installation may
not work with this configuration and gives you a server error 500.

  1. You are able to workaround with the PHP default in your php.ini:

    session.save_handler = files
  2. With Apache you may overwrite the PHP setting for the Matomo directory only.
    If Matomo is installed in /matomo you are able to create a .htaccess file in
    this directory with the below code:

    PHP 4, Apache 1.

    <IfModule mod_php4.c>
    php_value session.save_handler files

    PHP 4, Apache 2.

    <IfModule sapi_apache2.c>
      php_value session.save_handler files

    PHP 5, Apache 1 and 2.

    <IfModule mod_php5.c>
      php_value session.save_handler files
