This plugin allows the Matomo (Piwik) users to dynamically exclude their IP address using DDNS update.
Piwik 2.4.0 or higher is required.
This plugin is compatible with Matomo 3 (see requirements below for more details).
Which update method should i use, DDNS Update or DDNS Hostname?
If available, DDNS Update is recommended. This method is a bit more complicated to set up, but it leads to immediately updated IP's, as the client will trigger the update whenever a new IP is assigned. But it may not be viable for all users, eg. * Not all DDNS clients allow custom update-URL's. * The client may be already serving another Server and have no ability to talk to multiple Servers at the same time.
So, the DDNS Hostname can be an alternative. Use a DDNS Service that is compatible with your client and enter the hostname from there to have the plugin resolve your dynamic IP. The downside: Updating happens via a sheduled task every hour, so there might be small windows with the new IP still being tracked, but not the old one.
What data do I need to set for DDNS Update
You need to set a custom URL to be triggered for an update. Your personal update-URL is shown in your piwik installation (user-menu > Personal > DDNS Settings).
The URL has the following scheme:
There is no need to set user, password or domain name.
