> Hello everybody,
> I've just installed MRTG on a centos 4.5 and it just gave me the local
> output on http://localhost/mrtg
>  Now to add a swich to view it statisctics, i did
> /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/cfgmaker communityname at router1>/var/www/html/mrtg/core/switch1.cfg
> and it succesfully created a .cfg
> i edited my router1.cfg workdirectory as /var/www/html/switches
> To create a page I did Indexmaker like :
> /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/indexmaker /var/www/html/mrtg/switchswitch1.html>
> /var/www/html/mrtg/core/switch1.cfg
> and it gives : ERROR: Line 8 ( WorkDir: /var/www/html/mrtg) in CFG file
> (/var/www/html/mrtg/core/switch1.cfg) does not make sense
> I tried doing workdirectory as /var/www/html/mrtg/switch aslo and several
> other options but does'nt seem to work well.
> now i copied some stuff from mrtg.cfg to like runas daemon , HTML
> formating stuff, Stat and then I was able to generate switch1.html
> i ran
> env LANG=C /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/mrtg /var/www/html/mrtg/core/switch1.cfg
> and was able to get the results.
> but do i need to copy these fields (HTML formating stuff, Stat...)  each
> time i add a new machine to view the services?
> where  have i gone wrong?
> Thanks in advance
