Hi Eric,

Would you please keep the correspondence on the list?  Then it's there
in the archives for everyone to benefit from.  (Always assuming there's
any benefit to be had of course:)

That sounds reaasonable. :)

Now we need to see what's in the Apache error log for that request.
Make sure the clock on your machine is correct.  That's crucial in any
server.  Use NTP if possible.  Make a note of the exact time when you
make the request and then you can check what was written in the log at
that time, so you don't have to guess what was written when.

I don't follow this.  There must be more to a config file than that.
What is it called?  Where is it?

Have you gone through the installation documentation on the Smokeping
Website to make sure you've taken all the necessary steps?  If there
are any steps you don't understand then do make that clear, it's not
a time for glossing over anything you're not sure about and there's
plenty of room to take wrong turnings.  Systems can be very different,
for example one system might have Apache stuff in /var/www and another
might have the same stuff in /usr/local - don't feel bad about being
somewhat confused at first.
