Hello guys,

First time poster on the board. Just wanted to say that I love cacti so much as a grapher and wanted to finally upgrade to a newer version. I'm currently on Cacti 0.8h... I'm having a difficult guide to assist me in upgrading the program. I guess since the program has not been added to the respo I can't do a apt-get update then a apt-get upgrade to do an upgrade that way like I do for some other software. I do attempt to follow the guide but I have my cacti bin in /usr/share/cacti, my rra files in /var/lib/cacti/rra, and my debian.php in /etc/cacti. I'm a bit at a lose because I'm rather fresh/novice to linux so any help is appreciated if someone can work with me on this. Some things that I followed to get where I am.... Oh also, I upgraded from php 5.5 to php 7.0.17-1

I also have a problem in upgrading cacti from 0.8.x to 1.x.x, my solution was install latest cacti and copy the rrd's and plugins.

Hi athornfam2,

I assume you are wanting to upgrade to cacti 1.1.3? There are a couple of things you will have to do:

1. Get Apache and PHP 7 working successfully together (I recommend testing this on a separate environment and documenting the steps)
2. Download the latest cacti and upgrade

The upgrade process for Cacti is relatively easy. You just need to backup your current cacti, un-tar the new cacti, rename it then head to the web interface to upgrade the database. Simples! :lol:

What is your current situation exactly? Have you downloaded Cacti 1.1.3? Do you have PHP 7 and Apache working, or are you not sure?
