Installing cacti


Hello,
I have followed all the steps on http://www.cacti.net/downloads/docs/...tall_unix.html and i still cannot make cacti work, that is when i try 'http://myhost/cacti/' it's not showing me anything.
I have Ubuntu 6.06 RC server and i don't have apache installed, might this be the problem, I saw there were some who had apache installed and still it didn't work.
Thanks!

By the looks of those installation instructions, I think you need a web server. So yes, you should install Apache.

So i have installed the apache2 and still it won' work. When i try 'http://myhost/' i get the default apache page so i guess the server it's ok but that cacti won't work in any way.
Could it be that crontab line? Frakely i am wrestling this cacti for quite few days and i don't know why won't it work..

Doesn't your distro have a package for Cacti? If so just install that. I can see on Mandriva that it does in one of the repos so I'm guessing that somewhere in the Ubuntu/Debian package 'universe' or whatever they call it there'll be a Cacti package.

If it's not in the repos, it looks like you just aren't putting the files in the right place. Look in your /etc/apache/httpd.conf and see what the directory root is. When you get that, you should place the cacti files there. Usually, it's either /var/www/html/ or /srv/www/htdocs/

Once you have that you should be able to go to your server address and see the Cacti page.
