What Do I Need to Setup so Statistics start working?

I have set up phpList in my local computer. I was able to send campaigns successfully.

What I don’t get is the statistics – all are zeroes except for the emails sent.

Do I need to include/setup analytics like matomo or google analytics for the statistics to work? Do I need to install phpList in a public host instead to make statistics work.

I tried to search the forum for this information as well as the phpList manual.


@benz101 If you are referring to opens and click tracks then you need to enable those, but more importantly your server needs to be accessible from the internet.

Hey @duncanc,

Thanks for your reply.
If I understand this right, statistics will not work unless my phplist app is running online and not on a local desktop computer.

Time to upload phplist online.

Thanks again.
