Version 2.2.1 was released in March this year, so you probably had an even 
earlier version. Maybe 2.1.27?

PmWiki.org uses Google Analytics and it seems to work fine for us.

Your skin doesn't seem to have the Google Analytics snippet which should look 
like this:
  <script src='http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js' 
  <script type='text/javascript'>
    _uacct = 'UA-1234567-1';

This should be either in the skin template, or in a $HTMLHeaderFmt[] variable 
in config.php.

You are using the default PmWiki skin and if you had modified it, it might 
have been replaced by the upgrade. You should normally copy the default skin 
files to another directory, say myskin, add to config.php  $Skin = 'myskin';   
and modify these files instead of the default ones. (You may read the README 
document in the skin folder.)
