Hi,

I installed a fresh copy of CentOS 6.3 and Cacti 8.8a. I know the plugin architecture is now part of the release, but the plugins folder was missing from the /var/www/cacti folder. I created the folder and tried giving it the same rights as the log and rra folders but I still do not see the plugins listed under plugin management. yes, I restarted the httpd service after every change.

Is there something that should be added to the config.php file to make this happen???

thanks in advance

Did you already find a solution for this? I have the same issue.

Regards,
Roland

Where did you get the code from? Perhaps the package is broken?

from cacti I believe. Had to install RMforge for CentOS 6 first. then just ran 'yum install cacti'

I installed it twice this way just to see if there was something weird in my first install

yum install does NOT refer to our native code but to some repository (depending on you yum.repos.d settings). So this might be broken. Our code DOES inlcude the required directory

Thanks for the heads up.

Gandalf - you are the best! I manually downloaded the package from Cacti and it worked like a charm.

very odd though - I was looking through my install notes and I actually used
wget http://www.cacti.net/downloads/cacti-0.8.8a.tar.gz to download the file. Not sure why that wouldnt have been the same as just manually downloading it.

either way, it is working now and I see the plugins under Plugin Management

Thanks!!!

I have the same issue, but on CentOS 5.9 (i know, i know). I had originally installed cacti.noarch 0.8.8b-2.el5 from EPEL. After having read this thread, I donwloaded the tarball from cacti.net (wget http://www.cacti.net/downloads/cacti-0.8.8b.tar.gz). Then I extracted it right over my old installation. I do have a Plugin Management form, but it only reports "No Plugins Found".

Code:
[root@host plugins]# pwd
/var/www/cacti/plugins
[root@hostplugins]# tree -fpug

6 directories, 39 files


any ideas here? BTW, the instructions on the setting plugin page ( http://docs.cacti.net/plugin:settings )resolve to a HTTP 404 error :(

I can see this is not a popular topic :( At any rate, I simply did a "yum remove cacti", blew away the db and then reinstalled cacti using the instructions at http://www.cacti.net/downloads/docs/html/unix_configure_cacti.html . That worked and now plugins work too. I'm not sure what it was about that version from epel which didn't work right.

Something to check into:

I just updated an established cacti installation from 0.8.7g to 0.8.8b and noticed that I could not view the Plugin Management menu option in the left hand navigation.

I checked my particular user permissions in User Management and found that I had all Realm Permissions but Plugin Management checked. Enabling it presented the missing menu option.
Same behavior occurred when I enabled the Aggregate plugin (no realm permissions) - once enabled I have the options.

The actual 'admin' account appears to have these all enabled by default. It makes sense that non-admin accounts would not be granted the new permissions. It's just disorienting when you're used to doing everything with your daily use account. :D

TL;DR: Check your user account permissions. If you're using something other than the default admin account, then you may need to grant yourself some permissions in order to see new features.
