I don't have time right now to look it up, but I think a search of the archives will turn up a "fix" for your issue in Ubuntu 14. [i.e. Someone had a similar problem with U-14.04 and posted their results and fix.


Hi ?
Very sorry to raise such a noob question, even after finding similar issues on the mailing list (though not the same issue).
On Ubuntu 14.04 with SmokePing 2.006008 and Apache2 ?. Just installed.
Smokeping is configured to simply ping my router, and I?m accessing SmokePing from local Firefox at
I get a nice SmokePing page, but *all* .png files don?t show ? not even the rrdtool.png or smokeping.png ?
Looking at the Apache access.log, I see the problem. It?s asking for files like /smokeping/images/rrdtool.png and getting a 404 status back. This is happening with all .js scripts, too. If I point Firefox at the file:// location of the rrdtool.png, the .png fetches just fine.
Looking at the owners of all of these .png and .js files, I see root:root, but changing them to smokeping:www-data doesn?t change anything. Their permissions are set to 644 anyway.
I?m afraid I?m out of ideas ? why would Apache report not being able to see them?? 
(BTW, my /etc/smokeping/Apache2.conf has /smokeping aliased to /usr/share/smokeping/www, which seems right. Symlinks seem to be enabled for this directory.)
Any suggestions??
(All of these behaviors are essentially the unaltered install-out-of-the-box. I don?t think I?ve messed on anything.)
