[smokeping-users] Smokeping graphs not showing up

I came across an old post regarding empty graphs where the suggestion was
to add a soft link from the web server cache directory to the Smokeping
cache directory.

   ln -s /opt/smokeping/cache /<webdocs_root>/smokeping/cache

I have the same issue so tried this and indeed it does work.

This seems a bodge and shouldn't be needed if the config is correct.
The first part of mine is:

*** General ***

owner    = Chris Wilkinson
contact  = <cut>
mailhost = localhost
mailuser = <cut>
mailpass = <cut>
sendmail = /usr/sbin/sendmail
# NOTE: do not put the Image Cache below cgi-bin
# since all files under cgi-bin will be executed ... this is not
# good for images.
imgcache = /var/www/smokeping/cache
imgurl   = ../cache
datadir  = /opt/smokeping/data
piddir = /var/run
cgiurl   = http://<webdocs_root>/smokeping.fcgi
smokemail = /opt/smokeping/etc/smokemail
tmail = /opt/smokeping/etc/tmail
# specify this to get syslog logging
syslogfacility = local0
syslogpriority = info

Has there been any update on this or perhaps a comment on my erroneous config?
