Plugin Architecture not working

#1 Post by phil_w » Wed Feb 17, 2010 5:26 am

Hi guys,

I've recently made a clean install of cacti on a clean install of ubuntu 9.10, from the latest version of cacti in the ubuntu repo.

I applied the PA by copying the contents of the files-0.8.7d folder into the /usr/share/cacti/site/ folder and applying the sql file to the database.

All seemed to go well, however my site now doesn't work. It displays the following when browsed to.

Code: Select all

Warning: include(/usr/share/cacti/site/lib/adodb/ [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/share/cacti/site/include/global.php  on line 201

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '/usr/share/cacti/site/lib/adodb/' for inclusion (include_path='.') in /usr/share/cacti/site/include/global.php on line 201

Fatal error: Call to undefined function NewADOConnection() in /usr/share/cacti/site/lib/database.php on line 38

It looks like Debian or Debian variant. They break up Cacti install into pieces. It's a bit complicated. ADODB is one of the things that the Debian packager moved to another location. Somewhere like /usr/lib/adodb or somewhere.

True understanding begins only when we realize how little we truly understand...

Life is an adventure, let yours begin with Cacti!

Author of MacTrack, Boost, CLog, SpikeKill, Platform RTM, DSStats, maintainer of Spine, lot's of unpublished work and most of Cacti's bugs.

I'm still out there people. Getting excited for Cacti 1.2. I think it will be a great release.
