cacti is in the distribution, this text should describe how to set up that one instead of recommending to add external repos
On a new install of openSUSE Leap 42.3 I encountered several issues following the Advanced Cacti install. To put things into perspective, this was my first MYSQL install and first Cacti install.
Additional configuration needed.
Syntax error on "Order" statement. "Order" and "Allow" appear to be out of place?
<Directory " /srv/www/cacti"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
Time Zone Tables not initialized.
- zypper install mysql-community-server-tools
- mysql_tzinfo_to_sql /usr/share/zoneinfo | mysql -u root -p mysql
It may be necessary to grant access to the Time Zone tables.
Cacti configuration issues
The web interface reports that gd is not installed. That issue was resolved by:
- zypper install php-gd
- ...restarting Apache
The web interface reports that the "spine" binary can't be found. That issue was resolved by:
- zypper install cacti-spine
- Change the expected directory in the cacti web interface from "/usr/bin/spine/spine" to "/usr/bin/spine".
