It can happen to the best of us, either because of forgetfulness or because piwik somehow reordered the contents of config.ini.php (I'm not 100% sure it is possible, but it seemed to happen to me recently, and I wrongly assumed that the line I had added to the top of the file had been simply removed by piwik... leading to weeks of lost statistics).
If this is present in the configuration:
[Tracker] record_statistics = 0
...simply tell the user. There are a couple of ways to do so, which are not mutually exclusive:
- After running the upgrade script (from the commandline or the web UI)
- When inside the piwik's admin settings, or even directly in the main web interface, as a banner/infobar at the top above (or below) the dashboard menu
In the web UI, not only could we show the warning message, but it could also contain a button [Re-enable tracking], if such a thing is easy and safe to do.
