[SOLVED]What s/b cacti-1.2.4 Folder Permissions

#1 Post by eholz1 » Tue Jul 09, 2019 1:55 pm

Hello All,
Mildly stimied. I am used to cacti-1.1.38 working fine, poller, spine, rra, and log.
I am used to seeing the rra files and folder owned by cacti (the cacti user)
I am used to seeing the log directory and the cacti.log file owned by "cacti"

a cron job runs the poller every 5 minutes, but I am not getting any rrd files
for new devices added. the cron job runs as the "cacti" user

I have upgreaded to cacti-1.2.4 - on a virtual Linux machine, but the new devices
are not getting any rrd files.


What should the permissions be for the www/html dir, the rra dir and the log dir
for this latest cacti release?

Thanks,
eholz1

The rra folder should be owned by cacti, though if you have a website group (such as www-data) then you should probably ensure that the cacti user is part of that group and make the group able to read/write at the folder and file levels
