velaluqa/piwik — version 1.0.1 Aug 25th 2014


A puppet module to easily deploy piwik. Make sure you have a correct php5 installation. This module only downloads the latest piwik archive and extracts it to a given path.

You may have to install php5-fpm (via puppet-php) and configure your web server (maybe with a puppet nginx module).

Suggested Preparation

This module is as simple as possible. You should be able to choose your own php installation. This is my own, which works quite find, as I find:

  1. First I install the nodes/php module.
puppet module install nodes/php
  1. Using this module I install the necessary php packages. For serving php I use php-fpm with nginx.
class { 'php::extension::mysql': }
class { 'php::extension::mcrypt': }
class { 'php::extension::gd': }
class { 'php::fpm::daemon':
  ensure => running
  1. Then I install piwik. See [[Usage]].

  2. At last you may set up your vhost. This is depending on the server module you are using. I use my nginx fork


  class { 'piwik':
    path => "/srv/piwik",
    user => "www-data",

Please note: After the first installation you have to initialize piwik by bootstrapping the database. For this use the setup gui in your browser according to the piwik installation manual.



LoginLdap is a plugin to enable ldap authentication.

Just make sure you have php-ldap installed. Either via a puppet module like nodes/php or via the package resource.

Then use:

  class { 'piwik::plugins::loginldap': }
