To install first copy the files in the appropiate directory. It should look somewhat like this:
Then after activating the plugin in the wordpress administration panel, point your browser to
and follow the instructions to create or update the stattraq-tables. To view your statistics go to the admin panel and select “Stat Traq”.
- Q. Where’s my data?
A. Until someone who is not signed into the administrative panel (wp-admin) hits
your WordPress installation StatTraq cannot help you see statistics.
- Q. My ISP says my database is getting HUGE. What can I do?
A. (WARNING!!! THIS IS PERMANENT!!! use SQL commands at your own risk!!!!)
Open up a session with your MySQL server [we recommend phpMyAdmin] and type
in a query such as
DELETE FROM %wp-prefix%_stattraq WHERE access_time < ‘2009-01-01 00:00:00’;
- Q. Will you be giving me a way in the options section of the interface to delete older records?
A. Probably. We’ll also be giving you a high five if we meet you at a WordCamp.
