[smokeping-users] New setup error/issues

Intended to send to the list:

There is, [usually something like http://some-ip-or-host-name-fqdn/smokeping.cgi] provided the directory where the CGI is, is configured for CGI use in Apache. [That's why I asked about the apache logs]

Usually if smokeping is configured from a distro package it will also configure apache to be able to run the smokeping cgi - but there is not promise that is the case.
There are some examples if you search the list archives. [I could dig one up, but I'm too lazy tonight.]

Once you resolve the CGI/webpage thing, see the FAQ if you're still having issues:


Shouldn?t there be a default webpage for smokeping?
I am unable to bring that up.

I don't know if anyone here has integrated SP into Cacti, but I certainly know nothing about Cacti - and if you need help with Cacti, I'd ask on the list/forum for Cacti, not here.

Further, with the detail you've given, I couldn't actually figure out what you're doing or where things go wrong.

Is this a question about Smokeping or Cacti.
If SP, then:
What packages did you install and what versions were they?
What command are you trying to run?
Have you looked at the apache logs to see what they say?
The CGI script should be installed as part of the smokeping package, so I'm not sure what you mean when you say no smokeping.cgi is ever created.
It's not "created" - it's installed with the smokeping package.

So, I'll need a lot more detail to even have a prayer of helping - but again, if this is about Cacti or Cacti integration - ask there.


Using CentOS with the latest/stable of everything, I follow this http://forums.cacti.net/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=51285 but no smokeping.cgi is ever created
