Some users may still use the previous versions of TomatoCart that included the Piwik service to track a stores visitors. The data will be stored in the database. So, this will impact the performance of store because there will be more and more data to be saved into the database. It would be better to remove it and just use the Google Analytics service.

Now, I will teach you how to clear the Piwik data and files completely from your store:

Step 1. Disable the piwik service under admin panel > start menu > Modules > Services.


Step 2. Remove the piwik database tables.

You have to find all of the tables prefixed with toc_piwik and then select them. Finally, you just need to choose the drop option to delete the selected tables.

Step 3. Delete piwik.php under includes > modules > services fold.












Step 4. Delete piwik.php under admin > includes > modules > services fold.
