To move Piwik to a new domain or subdomain,

  • move all your Piwik files to the new directory, on your new domain or subdomain.
  • in your config/config.ini.php file, below [General] section, add a line with your new host: trusted_hosts[] = ""
  • open the new Piwik URL in your browser, and check that Piwik works as expected.
  • since the Piwik domain name has changed, you also need to change the Piwik JavaScript tags on all your tracked pages. For example, if Piwik was installed in and is now installed in, you need to update the tags on all your websites’ pages to point to the new URL.
  • If you use the auto archiving cron, you may have to update or setup the script path in your crontab file
