Turns out documentation pages will not be included in this site, from my brief inspection terms_of_use and privacy_policy are the most visited pages in wikimediafoundation.org so it might be that number of pages is quite smaller
Q: This is to be a WordPress site, right? Looks like WordPress comes with built in pageview and unique stats? https://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#views-and-visitors
Is there something else piwik would provide?
Update on conversation. Given that this new foundation site is a third party hosted on wordpress. site our proposal is to check whether these wordpress plugins for stats do work to gather the data comns is interested in:
@Nuria - our vendors reviewed those two modules and are not able to recommend them:
"As a summary, both plugins fall short in some key areas but the biggest blockers include:
- Writes on page load which will cause scaling problems
- Incompatibility with caching which will result in inaccurate data
- Potential security concerns
I believe we remain with Piwik as the most preferable solution. We can investigate a third-party hosting solution for Piwik installation, but would obviously prefer to keep it in-house if possible. Please let me know how you suggest proceeding.
Hm, likely I just don't understand how the plugins work. Is it that the plugins only work record data on the backend when PHP is executed? I'd be surprised if that were the case, but if so, the concern about caching makes sense. I'd expect that these work more like google analytics (and piwik), but perhaps not?
@Ottomata and @Nuria - I have requested the technical information from Reaktiv and will share as soon as I can. However, they have reviewed these extensions and done two broad reviews of multiple WordPress plugins at our request as well. So far, each process has resulted in the elimination of WordPress plugin based options, leaving us with Piwik as the best option. So, I think at this point, the question is more are we using our installation or a third-party installation.
Alright, thanks. I've also just looked a bit into wp-statistics code, and it seems they do not use client side logging to grab the data. https://github.com/wp-statistics/wp-statistics/pull/109 would do that, but that has been sitting since January.
Thanks for doing the research, I concur that neither of these plugins will do the job. :)

You can ping us on irc once you are close to launch, your piwik user 'wikipedia15" should have access to the data for this site, i woudld check that is the case now (even if data reports are empty). I will be closing this ticket shortly, please reopen if you have an aissue.
In order to access piwik (and any internal tool) you need to have ldap credentials (a user and a password) once you enter those the wikimedia15 credentials can be entered in the piwik login screen that should appear. Let us know what steps are not working.
I seem to be getting stuck at the LDAP login. I am using the same LDAP info I do elsewhere (I just verified on the OIT LDAP password screen that my info is working), but not letting me to Piwik login screen. Does my account have access?
