Joomla! Statistics Plugin
The Joomla! Statistics Plugin, when enabled, submits anonymous data to The Joomla Project.
Aim: to enable monitoring of Joomla! CMS usage with a view to ensuring that future versions of the CMS can take advantage of the latest database and PHP features without affecting significant numbers of users.
Example: determine what proportion of users are hosting their Joomla! website on servers using the latest version of PHP.
The following data is submitted anonymously when the Joomla! Statistics Plugin is enabled:
- Joomla version,
- PHP version,
- database engine and version, and
- server operating system.
