In particular I think what that means is ini_get('always_populate_raw_post_data') returns a bool value of false even if the php.ini contains the line always_populate_raw_post_data = -1.

So now the installer won’t let me get past the system check screen and is telling me to add the aforementioned line to my .ini file. In fact it already is!

So it must be this file: https://github.com/piwik/piwik/blob/b95837534c6fc4c9dd63eef2c2e9d8bb343ca23e/plugins/Diagnostics/Diagnostic/PhpSettingsCheck.php

On my local machine I have the following setup:

➜  ~  php --version
PHP 7.0.0RC3 (cli) (built: Sep 17 2015 15:28:52) 
Copyright (c) 1997-2015 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.0.0-dev, Copyright (c) 1998-2015 Zend Technologies
➜  ~  php -i | grep "Loaded Configuration"
Loaded Configuration File => /usr/local/lib/php.ini
➜  ~  cat /usr/local/lib/php.ini | grep always_populate_raw_post_data
always_populate_raw_post_data = -1
➜  ~  cat ini_get.php 

var_dump((int) ini_get('always_populate_raw_post_data'));
➜  ~  php ini_get.php 

So with PHP7, even with the value set to -1 in the .ini file, the check will never match.

Indeed I’ve just tested the same code on a machine running PHP 5.6.13 and get:

$ php ini_get.php

Is this merged in the current version (3.0.4) ? Because same problem here
Both cli and apache php.ini set right. Can't setup Piwik.

Thanks !

@tsteur commented on September 4th 2017 Member

Yes this is merged and Piwik is supposed to be fully working on PHP 7.

@extrablind commented on September 4th 2017

@tsteur : Thanks for your answer.
My mistake here, sorry, two versions of php on my server, so I was editing the wrong file.
Always look at the human error before checking breakdown... ;)
Thanks !
