I want install matomo and get in step 2 this optional tracking-status error
GET request to piwik.php failed. Try whitelisting this URL from HTTP Authentication and disable mod_security (you may have to ask your webhost).
mod_security exists, but its status "off". I can access piwik.php and get as result
As Matomo is not installed yet, the Tracking API cannot proceed and will exit without error.
So i want ignore this optional warning and get in next step a 403 site for
So I installed it on a subdomain and again I get a warning for tracking-status. I ignore it again and now its installed successful. I take a look in matomo system-check and now tracking-status is fine.
So the detection by install is little lost? ^^
@Daijobou did you see any failing requests during installation? It should send a request to piwik.php and show the warning if it fails due to any reason.
I saw only the optional tracking-status as error in step 2. There was no others errors show up.
In plesk mod_security had a issue, its was active and show wrong in-active. Solution was to start and stop mod_security.
