HI,
I solved by simply replace during install the my.ini with a modified one.
The only change that I made inside the file is the dimension of the innoDB buffer pool from 2G to 500M.
After that all goes smoothly ;)

original

innodb_buffer_pool_size=2G

changed in

innodb_buffer_pool_size=500M

I don't remember in which site I found the solution but also there is explained http://dba.stackexchange.com/questions/ ... og-file-si

How much memory do these OS with problems have? 2GB really shouldnt be that much...

It could be a bug with the MySQL installer/configuration tool, that for some reason it decides to allocate too much memory. When I update the Cacti installer again, hopefully the latest mysql has this issue fixed.

Hi BSOD2600,
after the "trick" and the successfull install of your package, I tried to logon and all works fine but after I tried to upgrade the db from a previous version, so I backup and restore the db.
At the new logon the upgrade process works fine as you can see in the attached image (except for the path of the Apache log) but after that when I tried to logon I get a blank page.
How it could be possible if I update only the db?
I searched long and I find a lot of topic about this problem, PHP problem, etc. but in this case no change at the component that work around only db update.
Any idea?

I attached the log in the Apache24 dir.


Regards
Alessio

please create a new thread as this is no longer related to an issue with the installer.

check the permissions on the apache path and cacti.log file.

Ok I opened a new topic as you told.
I saw also some missing path as in the image below and other could be somewhere.
Why not use the old path apache2 instead apache24 in the installer?

tiniturtle:
create a separate post, as youre issue is not with the installer.
So after following http://forums.cacti.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11747 and the debugging guide, what error(s) turned up?

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to help me with this. I'm a complete novice at this so please bear with me. The error message is as follows:-

Error

You have created a new database, but have not yet imported the 'cacti.sql' file. At the command line, execute the following to continue:

mysql -u cactiuser -p cacti < cacti.sql
This error may also be generated if the cacti database user does not have correct permissions on the cacti database. Please ensure that the cacti database user has the ability to SELECT, INSERT, DELETE, UPDATE, CREATE, ALTER, DROP, INDEX on the cacti database.

I have tried to run the mysql statement and I get the following:

C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin>mysql --user=root --password=******* cacti < C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cacti\cacti.sql
Warning: Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.
ERROR 1050 (42S01) at line 5: Table 'cdef' already exists

Kind regards,

Jamie.

Depends in the hardware and configuration. A few users have demonstrated over 1 million data sources.

for testing, Win7 is just fine. When you get serious about an large installation, server hardware is the way to go.
