This plugin extends the standard Piwik authentication to use Basic HTTP Authentication. It lets you login to Piwik using the HTTP Auth mechanism.

How do I setup HTTP Auth using Piwik?

  • Login your Piwik as Super User. Click Settings, then click Marketplace.
  • Install the LoginHttpAuth plugin, then click Activate.
  • Click Settings, then click Users.
    • Check that there is a user in Piwik for each person that should have access to Piwik.
  • Enable HTTP Auth on the Piwik on your web server.

    For example, if you are using Apache webserver:

    • generate a .htpasswd file with your encrypted logins and passwords
    • copy this example .htaccess file in the root directory of Piwik, and set the path to your .htpasswd file
  • When you go to Piwik, you will see the Authentication window. Congratulations! You are now using HTTP Auth to protect Piwik.
