Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
Make sure the Date and Time are set correctly in WordPress.

The greatest advantage of WP Statistics is that all the data is saved locally in WordPress.
This helps a lot while implementing the new GDPR restrictions; because it’s not necessary to create a data processing contract with an external company! Read more about WP Statistics compliance with GDPR.
Does WP Statistics support Multisite?
WP Statistics doesn’t officially support the multisite feature; however, it does have limited functionally associated with it and should function without any issue. However, no support is provided at this time.
Version 8.8 is the first release that can be installed, upgraded and removed correctly on multi-site. It also has some basic support for the network admin menu. This should not be taken as an indication that WP Statistics fully supports the multisite, but only should be considered as a very first step.
Does WP Statistics work with caching plugins?
Yes, the cache support added in v12.5.1
If you’re using a plugin cache:
* Don’t forget to clear your enabled plugin cache.
* You should enable the plugin cache option in the Settings page.
* Making sure the below endpoint registered in your WordPress.
To register, go to the Permalink page and update the permalink with press Save Changes.
What’s the difference between Visits and Visitors?
Visits is the number of page hits your site has received.
Visitors is the number of unique users which have visited your site.
Visits should always be greater than Visitors (though, there are a few cases when this won’t be true due to having low visits).
The average number of pages a visitor views on your site is Visits/Visitors.
Are All visitors’ locations set to ‘unknown’?
Make sure you’ve downloaded the GeoIP database and the GeoIP code is enabled.
Also, if you are running an internal test site with non-routable IP addresses (like 192.168.x.x or 172.28.x.x or 10.x.x.x), these addresses will be always shown as ‘unknown’. You can define a location IP for these IP addresses in the “Country code for private IP addresses” setting.
I’m using another statistics plugin/service and get different numbers from them, why?
Probably, each plugin/service is going to give you different statistics on visits and visitors; there are several reasons for this:
Web crawler detections
Services that use centralized databases for spam and robot detections , such as Google Analytics, have better detection than WP Statistics.
Not all referrals are showing up in the search words list, why?
Search Engine Referrals and Words are highly dependent on the search engines providing the information to us. Unfortunately, we can’t do anything about it; we report everything we receive.
PHP 7 Support?
WP Statistics is PHP 7 compliant; however, some versions of PHP 7 have bugs that can cause issues. One known issue is that PHP 7.0.4 cause memory exhaustion errors. Newer versions of PHP 7 do not have this issue.
At this time (September, 2018) WP Statistics seems to run fine with PHP 7.2.6. But you may experience issues that we haven’t found yet. If you do, feel free to report it after you make sure it is not a problem with PHP.
WP Statistics supports IPv6 as of version 11.0; however, PHP must be compiled with IPv6 support enabled; otherwise you may see warnings when a visitor from an IPv6 address hits your site.
You can check if IPv6 support is enabled in PHP by visiting the Optimization > Resources/Information->Version Info > PHP IPv6 Enabled section.
If IPv6 is not enabled, you may see an warning like:
Warning: inet_pton() [function.inet-pton]: Unrecognized address 2003:0006:1507:5d71:6114:d8bd:80c2:1090
