Hi

I am using Cacti Version 0.8.8a
When I installed it for first time, the "Plugin Management" button was there, I just import some MikroTik templates after the installation and decided to use some plugins. For example monitor plugin. I did the whole steps and I copied the monitor folder under /usr/local/share/cacti/plugins/ and also I edited the config.php as following:

$plugins = array();
$plugins[] = 'monitor';
$url_path = "/cacti/";

But the problem is there is no "Plugin Management" button on the left anymore. I do not know how it is gone !!!
Anyone can help me ?!

Regards

Hmmm - I am having similar issues but on mine I can see plugin management under configuration. Make sure to go to User Management and give your user permission to control Plugin Management. Then you should be at the same point as me. I cannot get the plugins to show on the plugin management page or the permissions page as shown in the documentation. I have done all that I was told. /var/www/cacti/plugins/ has two folders: monitor and settings, both were unpacked properly and seem to be ready to work. Permissions all seem good. I will keep hacking at it until someone saves my ars.

Heeeeelllllpppppp.
Thanks.

I finally figured out that my issue was permission related and 0.8.8a seems to be awesome.

I'm so curious that how you solved your problem?! Permission?!
Interesting ...
I solved my problem in other way.
I just did backup from mysql and install cacti again and then I did import the database to the mysql again and it was solved.

I set permissions on all plugin folders to 755 or rwxr-xr-x and made sure each plugin was allowed to be controlled by my user, admin.

Where did you download plugin architecture for version 0.8.8a?

Thank you

In release 0.8.8a PIA installed by default. And you no need to edit config.php or global.php for installing plugins. All what you need is copy you files with plugin to plugins folder, change owner of files and go to WI of cacti to activate it.
I think main problem in this topic is editing config.php. Just delete all your changes.

+1; always use latest config.php and only enter required modifications

No errors in cacti.log.

From what i've understand no configurationfiles needs to be edited for the links to files to be successful.

Thanks for answers.
Options? Restart from Source and unpack it under /var/www/ ?

NOTE:
root@com:/var/www/cacti# aptitude versions cacti
i 0.8.7g-1+squeeze1

Fail

I will download the source or install PIA for 0.8.7g.
