Install Open Web Analytics (OWA) on CentOS 7

In today’s article we will install Open Web Analytics (OWA) on a CentOS 7 VPS. Open Web Analytics (OWA) is an open source web analytics software that you can use to track and analyze how people use your websites and applications. It is written in PHP and uses a MySQL database. OWA is similar to Google Analytics although it is a server software that anyone can install and run it on a Linux VPS.

OWA is licensed under GPL and provides website owners and developers with easy ways to add web analytics to their sites using simple Javascript, PHP, or REST based APIs. It also comes with built-in support for tracking websites made with popular content management frameworks such as WordPress and MediaWiki.
