This has nothing to do with the installer. please create a new thread in the general forum. graph automation is now built into cacti... but users still need to configure it.
Sorry, could you help me how to configure it ?
Currently I am stuck and desperate for few months after upgrade to 1.x.x with no solutions. :oops:

Hello,

I am OK now. I was using a wrong graph template for the device.

Thanks

BSOD2600, did you know why MySQL did not installed and configured successfully?

PS : Succeed to install MySQL using seperated installer.

Got error that cacti can not connecting to database and need to make sure config.php is valid.

Checked database is running and config.php is configured correctly but still can not access cacti webpage.

SOLVED !

Yes. Previous versions of the cacti installer would timeout prematurely waiting for the MySQL installer to complete on slow systems. That has been fixed a few weeks ago.

I'm having problems with the installer it seems to hang forever at installing MySQL. I've attached image and let the installer run over night with no progress. Not sure why it won't complete.

I'm thinking that this is a bad version of MySQL 5.7.18 as I can install any older version but this one version the service fails to initialize causing the install to fail and hang forever. Even running the MySQL installer myself it sits and sits. Is there an older version of this all-in-one installer that I can use and just update Cacti?

you really dont need to use the installer just to update cacti. Follow the steps in http://www.cacti.net/downloads/docs/html/upgrade.html
basically backup the mysql database, download the updated cacti files, overwrite them, login with admin and let any post update processes run.

After installation of cacti 1.1.10, everything working fine except on funny issue - Missing SNMP value for Disk-C:
Graphs for Disk C are missing values, all other partitions are OK!!!
This applies to multiple servers. And BTW it's OK for real time graphs ...

I have found solution, it was pretty simple..
need Just increase SNMP timeout at least to 5000 ms, was a bit confused that it occurs only with disk C: :)

The installer hangs at installing MySQL because I think the windows service fails to start/run. This happens only with the latest MySQL. Not sure how to proceed and I'm unable to setup Cacti.

Hi everyone, first of all thanks @BSOD2600 for creating and keeping alive this installer the first version i ever use was 0.8.8h and it works great, but after the 1.x version i found issues with the password automatic generated by the installer, the mysql passwords works fine but the cacti password keep saying incorrect and i tested with serveral versions of the installer including the most recent, anybody else is having this problem or is just me?
