Stopping right there. Anything beyond this message is irelevent until this
is resolved. Edit smokeping in the bin folder and make
sure Smokeping::main("path/to/conf/file"); has the right path and file
name! I have smokeping installed in /opt there for
/opt/smokeping/bin/smokeping has an entry in it that looks
like Smokeping::main("/opt/smokeping/etc/smokeping.conf"); because I have
my conf file saved in /opt/smokeping/etc/. Another option is to tell
smokeping where your config file is on the command line. RTFM for that

You may want to check this in smokeping.fcgi as well. It's critical they
all point to the correct config file.
