I have an huge issue with piwik since we decided to migrate our infra from Debian to FreeBSD. I installed piwik any times and I know very well the installation process, I make a fresh installation for testing but the problem persists : my webpage is blank.

There's nothing in my logs except access traces: - - [26/Mar/2016:17:36:32 +0100] "GET / HTTP/2.0" 200 154 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0"

### There is my configuration files

                        fastcgi_param PHP_VALUE "max_execution_time=1800


Hope somebody can help, I can provide any configuration files for debugging. Thanks in advance.

I found the problem, I don't know really why but it like an incompatibility between index index.php & fastcgi_index index.php;. I just deleted the last line and now it works ! Sorry for the noise.
