  Dear Eng.\ Farhan


  I did the migration with aid of your advice. MRTG now is working (I can say it is working because I see the last update date and time on each page of the html output is getting updated each interval) 

  But the graphs is only straight lines not a graph with ups and downs 

  Attached here a screen shoot of what I got, which not that was getting before 


  Any ideas for help?


  Thanks on advance

  Dear Amr


  Its not a big task you can perform this activity very easly by follow few steps


  1) just take a backup of yr cfgs , crond , .logs files or if your are using .rrd base mrtg you also need to take backup of CGI files and rrds. make sure the backup copy you hv taken not corrpted after traffering in into another system. to ensure that just tar all files on existance mrtg srv and then download it.


  install a new mrtg if you are using centos mrtg is the builtin package just install it.


  put your tar archive there untar it and just place files and directories on their places 


  for further you can contact with me
