WP SlimStat
[resolved] Installation (17 posts)

    I've installed this at a fresh new blog as per the Installation section, and tested from a few machines. Yet looking at the stats page, it's not tracking anything.

    My new blog is at http://www.shiroikuma.co.uk (can you tell from the html if its working or not?)

    On the maintenance page I keep seeing "It looks like you need to update the structure of one of the tables used by this plugin. Please click the button here above to reset your table (all the data will be lost, sorry), then deactivate/reactivate WP SlimStat to complete the installation process." next to the Reset Stats button, so I've tried that too... but nothing.

    And I don't get any errors on any page (no php errors, no javascript errors).

    I hope you can help, thanks.

    It looks like Wp Slimstat is not being able to create one of the tables needed to store all the information about pageviews etc. What tables that start with "wp_slim_" do you see in your database? Could you also list what fields each table contains? Do you have access to your mysql logfiles to get some more information from there?

    Thanks

    That could definitely be a problem. Only the 11 base tables from WP are there, with my correct prefix. There are no wp_slim_ or any _slim_ tables whatsoever.

    Also, forgot to say I don't know where the log files are for mysql. I am trying to find them though.

    Are you trying to install Wp Slimstat in a "network" (WordPress MU) environment with more than 50 blogs in it?

    It's actually a dedicated vhost running arch linux, suhosin php, apache and mysql. WordPress was put directly into the root / folder too.

    I'm actually referring to this setup

    Sorry for the misunderstanding

    Ahh, nope. Not an MU as that's the first I've heard about it. Standard, default 3.3.1 install.

    I see. Well, your MySQL logfile could tell us what's going on. Do you have access to that information?

    All I can see is updates to wp_options. Would you like the raw binary.000007 file?

    Could you try to create those tables via phpmyadmin? you can find the SQL in wp-slimstat.php

    Thanks

    I've created the tables manually now. I noticed when doing that, that you have a mix of {$wpdb->prefix} and {$wpdb->base_prefix}.

    But it appears to be working now. Thanks for that. Still confusing as to why it didn't attempt to create the tables.

    I feel like I'm being fussy, but it's listing the screen resolutions wrong.

    It's listing the only viewer, as 1680x925. But it should be 1680x1050.

    However I'm fully aware that this could be Chrome (17.0.963.83 m) reporting that wrongly to the javascript.

    No, that is the expected behavior. People want to know how big the viewport was when the user was visiting that page. I can have 3 screens one next to the other for a total width of 3072 pixels, but with the browser open inside the first screen. It is more useful to know what the browser window's size was, not the user's screen resolution ;) Also, don't forget that the width of the scrollbar is not included.

    Ps: a vote for my plugin would be a nice way to say thank you.

    Okay, cool. To me as developer I think of viewport and screen resolution as very different things. But I understand that design decision.

    Thanks for the help in getting it working, and I already have ^^ Thanks again

    Yeah, I see your point, but most people understand what a "screen resolution" is, viewport would be a cryptic term for them...

    Hello Camu,

    Same problem here as Naijeru, all the fields inside admin panel are empty (for the slimstat plugin).

    I am using:
    Wordpress 3.3.2
    WP SLimStat 2.8

    All the fields are showing up as i should expect but it is not collecting any data (no data available)

    I can't figure out how Naijeru solved this problem. Can you please give me a direction what to do?

    Thanks,

    DJJackass

    Would you mind starting a new topic to discuss your problem? In the meanwhile, check if WP SlimStat's tables have been created...
