I've put together an all-inclusive Windows installer for Cacti. It's been tested on Windows 2008R2/2012R2/2016. This is only meant for new installations where you have no existing components installed (i.e. Cacti, MySQL, Apache, PHP). It installs the latest versions of all needed applications in their default locations (per the install guide), configures them, and should give you a fully functional Cacti.
This installer lets you choose between using IIS or Apache web server. It'll also install 64bit versions of Apache/MySQL/PHP/Net-SNMP, where applicable. Disable your anti-virus for the installer -- it runs some special scripts that configure IIS, MySQL, files and NTFS permissions. Some AV scanners block these events from occurring.
Don't forget to follow the post-install instructions and restart the server before trying to access the Cacti website! After the installer is done, you can check cacti-installer.log for errors. Lastly, to upgrade Cacti, follow this guide.
Code: Select all
--2019-07-18 (v3.35) * Upgrade Cacti/Spine to 1.2.5 * Upgrade PHP to 7.2.20 (VC15) * Upgrade Cygwin to 3.0.7 * Upgrade RRDTool to 1.7.2 (VS16) * Add RRDTool x64 (VS16)

Please report any problems you have regarding the installer in this thread. Generic Cacti problems should go in their own new separate thread after you've read this post.
