You IBall'n me boy?
I'm also new to the cacti experience and I followed your aptitude command. I was quite stunned when it just started "doing everything" by itself. Why can't they make EVERYTHING work like this!
So it installed prety mutch everything - PHP5, Apache2, MySQL, cacti, RDDtool...etc, etc.
I tried creating my user accounts in mysql - but the
"CREATE USER 'cacti'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password'; doesn't work!? So I added it in the tables - problem solved.
Now Granting priv's...so I grant him ALL but when I log in as cacti there are no databases for him to view...
So I remove php5 and install php4 - bad idea.
Then I aptitudely removed cacti with all the extra's.
Then I reinstalled it using aptitude.
So I browsed to "htt p : // myURL / cacti" and it asked me with what I wanted to open the file with???
So I said Firefox.exe . Now I'm at a page that sais:
You are now logged into Cacti. You can follow these basic steps to get started.
* Create devices for network
* Create graphs for your new devices
* View your new graphs
Then when I click on one of the links it wants to go to:
Any I Deer's?
Oh, and I just tested my PHP with a
<?php echo phpinfo(); ?>
file in my web dir and it also asked me if I wanted to open, save or whatever the file. So I'm guessin my php aint workin like it should.
Where to fix it would be the question then...?
