Since this week, cacti is in Debian stretch-backports.

Could this be used with Ubuntu 16.04?

I can't support Debian packages for Ubuntu before 17.04 because too many of the dependencies are missing or too old. Sorry. Ubuntu 17.04 packages can be obtained via my ppa. See my signature. If people are stuck on an older Ubuntu and still want cacti 1.*, I recommend installing cacti directly from this site, but be sure to remove all traces from the Ubuntu cacti package as they expect things in different places and I wouldn't know how to upgrade. See again my signature for more info.

Thanks for the info. Yeah I have been installing it from this site, without much issue, it would just me nice to do it from the package manager. I tend to stick to LTS on production servers. It's nice to see someone is making it easier to install. Thanks for you hard work. I might switch over to pure Debian 9, I just don't know if I want to go through the hassle of moving the DB etc. 8)

Does raspbian have latest version of cacti i.e 1.1.38 in its repositories which can be obtained with the command sudo apt-get install cacti ? At the moment, the latest version of raspbian only gets cacti 0.8.8H. What would be the procedure to setup cacti 1.1.38 on raspberry pi with raspbian if it is installed manually?

On which version of Debian or Ubuntu is this latest version of Raspbian based? Depending on the answer, you could you the package from Debian Backports (in my signature).

Than using the Debian Backports should be fine.

Hi there

I am new to the forum but was wanting the same thing to update to the latest (or newer) Cacti. I was running Raspbian on my Pi 3 with Cacti 0.8.8h.

This is how I upgraded for anyone needing to do the same.

Backup your database to start with. then:

Add to sources.list the following which holds a newer version (Version 1.1.38 at time of writing)

Code:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main


then run

Code:
sudo apt-get update


I then ran into an issue but fixed it by running this command which I had googled for a solution

Code:
sudo apt-cache policy roundcube


then you can install Cacti 1.1.38.

Code:
sudo apt-get install -t stretch-backports cacti


For me this worked, and I hope this will help others.

Simon

I'm also stuck with Raspberry PI installation.

Running raspbian stretch lite - latest version.

I've added the backports repo, and then install using
Code:
sudo apt-get install -t stretch-backports cacti


but it gets stuck at
Code:
populating database via sql...
Any idea's where to start looking to trouble shoot this?

(tried on 2 PI's both ver 3b, both have the same problem. it didn't seem to have this problem in a vm running the x86 version of raspbian desktop)

What happens after that message (please copy/paste the output)? That code can take a while, how long did you wait?
