I've put together an all-inclusive Windows installer for Cacti. It's been tested on Windows Vista/7/2008/2012. This is only meant for new
installations where you have no
existing components installed (i.e. Cacti, MySQL, Apache, PHP). It installs the latest versions of all needed applications in their default locations (per the install guide), configures them, and should give you a fully functional Cacti.
This installer lets you choose between using IIS or Apache web server. It'll also install 64bit versions of Apache/MySQL/PHP/Net-SNMP, where applicable. Disable your anti-virus for the installer -- it runs some special scripts that configure IIS, MySQL, files and NTFS permissions. Some AV scanners block these events from occurring.
Don't forget to follow the post-install instructions and restart the server before trying to access the Cacti website! After the installer is done, you can check cacti-installer.log for errors. Lastly, to upgrade Cacti, follow this guide
, since the installer is not meant for upgrading.Release Notes
