Lots of Cacti Documentation Stuff

#1 Post by gandalf » Wed Jan 17, 2007 2:09 pm

If you're tried searching my signature or need more advanced stuff, please visit my Cacti 0.8.7 HowTo.
At time of writing, a printout would bring you about 110 pages.

Please find Debugging HowTo included.

Suggestions on improvements, corrections, new documentation requests are always welcome.

Fedora Specific Cacti Documentation

#7 Post by DrSaab » Wed Sep 02, 2009 6:32 am

Dear Concern,

I m looking 4 fedora specific documentation for cacti
Documentation available on website is absolute wastage of time for those who are not expert.

I need some rocksproject.org type pf guide

DS

In fact, the docs were created on a Fedora system.
So I'm not aware of anything that won't work. Please point out your problem to hopefully improve the documentation.

Andrew,

What version of CentOS are you using? Also, 32 or 64 bit?

Thanks,
-John

Do you need help setting up on CentOS? I, too, run CentOS (5.x - 64-bit).

Found a series of excellent links to load Cacti 0.8.7i onto CentOS 6.2 32 bit. If running 64 bit change wget in step #3 to:

[[email protected]]# wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm

Do this first: http://www.ehowstuff.com/how-to-install ... entos-6-2/
Do this second: http://www.ehowstuff.com/how-to-install ... epository/

On the second page at step 7 to modify the following:

<Directory /usr/share/cacti/>
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Directory>

vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/cacti.conf

Finally, remove the comment the polling from vi /etc/cron.d/cacti
