Greg -


It looks like the July 3, 2014 post from sysadmin at gozoom.ca may solve the
problem. I'll try it when I get home.

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

(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.)
