I have same problem here with fresh v1.2.3 install on Fedora 29/x86_64 - after filling "Cacti log path" are all check points green, but on top is still "WARNING:One or more paths appear to be incorrect, unable to proceed" message.

Is there any progress in solving this bug?

Yeah, this is dumb and should be fixed.

The log is writable/being written to, the permissions are right (same as the othr files) but the clever updater is screwed up.

This isn't the first time I've seen this. Someone needs to do a better job testing these releases.

Same issue on fresh install of Debian 9 Cacti 1.2.3.

Appreciate the work all the developers do on this. It is free and open source. Thank you!

The solution is to create a directory with the correct permissions where the default path resides. This will allow you to get past the installer. You can then remove the default location even if you are using your own custom one.

The 1.2.4 upgrader will have this fixed.

Sorry... What is the default location? On my install, the text box for this log file starts out blank.

It can very from system to system and method of install. To find the actual location used, run the following sql code and then check install_complete.log in the log folder.

Code: Select all

replace into settings values ('log_install','3')
The value you are looking for is the path_cactilog

I finished install cacti 1.2.3 on centos 7.

step 1.
yum install cacti ( 1.2.3).

step 2.
download 1.2.2 then overwrite cacti folder ( /usr/share/cacti/ ).

step 3.
install by web.

step 4.
download 1.2.3 then overwrite cacti folder.
And use web upgrade process from 1.2.2 to 1.2.3.

now. You can use cacti 1.2.3

i dont know exactly what fixed it, but this helped me get it done. I ran that SQL script, but did nothing else. i dont even have a "install_complete.log" file on my server. i went back to the wizard and could get past that step.

Hi All

I am new to Cacti, have been using PRTG up till now but was looking for a Linux based solution, I also got stuck on this during my first install yesterday. I eventually found another "how to" and using that and the first step by step I got it working off the bat.

The way I fixed it was as per what someone posted above here, manually create the folder and assign permissions.

I am a very green Linux user so needed to look for the commands but in the end this is what I used....so if like me you are clueless and need the exact commands, here you go, do the full install then right at the end before you launch the web interface do this..

mkdir -p /var/log/cacti
cd /var/log/cacti/
touch cacti.log

If you want my full install commands send me a message and I will collate the different step by steps I used..

Same with cacti 1.2.3 installation on Windows. Even creating the .log file and point the spine conf filepath, the problem occours.
Sad.

Hi,

I've found a workaround, if you open a private browsing window on firefox and paste url where you get stuck you can finish install of cacti 1.2.3

Regards ;)
