Short Description
piwik with php and apache
Full Description


Piwik is the leading open-source analytics platform that gives you more than just powerful analytics:

  • Free open-source software
  • 100% data ownership
  • User privacy protection
  • User-centric insights
  • Customisable and extensible


In keeping with a 'pure' micro-services approach, this image runs a Piwik service only (in the form of FastCGI). Because of that it must be used with companion containers which provide a database for data storage and HTTP to FastCGI proxy/translation services for the user interface.


You can run the Piwik container and service like so:

docker run -d --link some-mysql:db piwik

This assumes you've already launched a suitable MySQL or MariaDB database container.

You'll now need to use a suitable reverse proxy to access the user interface; which is available on TCP port 9000. Nginx provides the necessary functions for translation between HTTP and FastCGI and you can find a suitable configuration file here.

To save time putting together all these parts, you might find it easier if you use the docker-compose setup detailed at IndieHosters/piwik.

Piwik Installation

Once you're up and running, you'll arrive at the configuration wizard page. If you're using the compose file, at the Database Setup step, please enter the following:

  • Database Server: db
  • Login: root
  • Database Name: piwik (or you can choose)

And leave the rest as default.

Then you can continue the installation with the super user.
