Config

Singleton that provides read & write access to Matomo (formerly Piwik)'s INI configuration.

This class reads and writes to the config/config.ini.php file. If config options are missing from that file, this class will look for their default values in config/global.ini.php.

Examples

Getting a value:

// read the minimum_memory_limit option under the [General] section
$minValue = Config::getInstance()->General['minimum_memory_limit'];

Setting a value:

// set the minimum_memory_limit option
Config::getInstance()->General['minimum_memory_limit'] = 256;
Config::getInstance()->forceSave();

Setting an entire section:

Config::getInstance()->MySection = array('myoption' => 1);
Config::getInstance()->forceSave();
