Do not upgrade until the PIA for 0.8.7f is released. This should be today or tomorrow.

Sirup, I had tell you that I have always a problem...!!!

Why make available the new version, if we can not install it...? :(

So, what must I do...?
-> wait the plugin architecture for cacti version 0.8.7f ?
-> install this plugin ?
-> and how recover my plugins...? copy my old plugins in the "plugins" directory, and add them to global.php ?

Ooohh... :( Why there are always things like this to me...

Think twice. The Crew relesed the new Cacti version, that plug-in stuff is not officially maintained by the Cacti group but by plug-in authors. That entire Plug-In stuff would be much more complicated without the PA, which actually is a plug-in, too. So you should really bring up or use a testsystem to try things like that. Upgrading Cacti is something I plan for days in advance! Backup and stuff, you know...

What you CAN do is revert the upgrade manually - for example by restoring your backup ;)

Comme c'est dommage !

Bonjous,

yeah e should work like a charm :)
so how do you want to do that? Copy over the files or setting up a new machine and moving the DB and RRDs?

Bonjour!

I think I will rename the cacti directory and keep it on the server for after (or for never... :wink:) ; And put the version 0.8.7e on the same server with keeping rra and database...

How can I be sure when I will put the version 0.8.7f of cacti ?

Thanks!

PS : I hope I not talk too bad english... :wink:

Release notes say that Cacti 0.8.7f requires boost 4.0 plugin. Has boost 4.0 been officially released as of yet? If not, I guess one should postpone upgrading Cacti (currently running 0.8.7e with boost 3.1) until it is available?

Thanks!

Boost 4.0-1 is on the Docs site. However, depending on what version of MySQL 5.x you are using, there a nasty bug that I'm going to work around with Boost 4.1. It's an "awful" bug.

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

Thanks for the information. I will postpone the upgrade until Boost 4.1 is available.
