[solved]Plugins installed but not activated?

#1 Post by NickC » Wed Feb 10, 2010 8:40 am

Ive just started installing plugins but they dont seem to be working.
I have Cacti 0.8.7e installed along with PA 2.6 yet all the plugins I have installed are showing as 'Old Plugin Architecture' under status in Plugin Management.
See the screenshot attached.

Have I installed something incorrectly or used the wrong versions? I thought I had used the latest versions of everything but I may have messed something up, any suggestions are welcome :)

not working because the plugins you added are not PIA compatible, so you need to add them to the config.php file under /cacti/include and also give the users access to them


Code: Select all

/* Default session name - Session name must contain alpha characters */
$cacti_session_name = "Cacti";

$plugins = array();
$plugins[] = 'discovery';
$plugins[] = 'tools';
$plugins[] = 'update';

Those plugins have to be activated within /include/global.php .

Turns out that while I had them in global.php I wasnt declaring them properly, changing it to the format zoemu described seems to have fixed them and they are now showing as running :)
