Wordpress satellite install

In this installation method FireStats is installed anywhere on your web server (outside of Wordpress).
This is the recommended for advanced users that want to monitor several blogs (or other systems) using the same FireStats installation.

NOTE: This requires Wordpress 2.0 or newer.

Installation

  • Install FireStats somewhere on your web server following the Standalone installation instructions.
  • Create a site for your your blog in the sites table in FireStats, note the side id (Select WordPress as the site type).
  • Copy only the file firestats-wordpress.php to the Wordpress plugins directory (you should end up with it at wp-content/plugins/)
  • Open the Wordpress plugins tab, and activate FireStats.
  • Go to Options->FireStats
  • Enter the path where you installed FireStats
  • Enter the url FireStats can be accessed from.
  • Open FireStats from the Dashboard, go to the WordPress tab, and enter the site id from before into the site id text field.

Upgrade

  • Deactive FireStats from the plugins menu.
  • Unzip the new version on top of the old one, overwriting the old files.
  • Replace your existing firestats-wordpress.php in the Wordpress plugins directory with the new one.
  • Activate FireStats from the plugins menu.
