Quick reference

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

Build Status Matomo (formerly 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 Matomo 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 Matomo container and service like so:

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

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.

Matomo 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.

Docker-compose examples and log import instructions

A minimal set-up using docker-compose is available in the .examples folder.

If you want to use the import logs script, you can then run the following container as needed, in order to execute the python import logs script:

docker run --rm --volumes-from="matomo_app_1" --link matomo_app_1 python:2-alpine python /var/www/html/misc/log-analytics/ --url=http://ip.of.your.piwik --login=yourlogin --password=yourpassword --idsite=1 --recorders=4 /var/www/html/logs/access.log
