1) Go to your 'config' file and un-comment the first entry under Targets
2) You probably need to "chmod 4755 /bin/traceroute" to get it to work
Please note that if your using mod_perl you will have an problem since mod
perl will try and run the Tr.js, I have not followed up on this yet.

You are correct these are more apache-101 questions covered in the FAQ
But I have also pointed you to the right place for more in depth
information recently with
The proper place to use is the conf.d/smokeping file.
Changing it to look like this.
<Directory "/usr/share/smokeping" >
Deny from all
Allow from <your IP and/or your domainname.tla goes here>
AuthName "Smokeping Authorized personal"
And remember create/add yourself to this file. (and yes only use the -c
for the first user to create the file, if you do it again you erase the
"htpasswd -c /etc/smokeping/htpasswd.users guy"
"htpasswd /etc/smokeping/htpasswd.users guy2"
