Cacti Installation Problems with include/config.php

In the cacti installation for network monitoring, I dont know where this include/config.php is. Can someone tell me where this is. I am installing this on Red Hat 9. Please email me at if you know the answer to this.

The instructions I am following come from


Edit include/config.php and specify the MySQL user, password and database for your Cacti configuration.

$database_default = "cacti";
$database_hostname = "localhost";
$database_username = "cactiuser";
$database_password = "cacti
Any help would be appreciated.

I dont know where this is. The full instructions are on cacti's website but I dont have enough posts to put up the website address.

Lightbulb I'm

Finally I find a post about something I myself am working on! My question is basically the same except I'm running CentOS which is the same so I've heard. I am also having a hard time finding this directory or file I've tried using a couple of commands that I know including grep and find (these return no results). I'm really novice at Linux and any help would be greatly appreciated. Soooo Thanks in advance,

Tried finding the reference to the file you mentioned but I downloaded the redhat 9 rpm file and opened it to see the file list. It is located in /var/www/html/cacti/include/config.php
This should be what you are after.

Only other place for this file is if you build from source then where you extract it there is an include directory in that. but I don't think this is what you are after. I would say it is the first one I mentioned.

Hi chas3y, Yes Centos is quite a bit like Redhat. Redhat 9 is the last of the redhat type distros redhat release under its name for free. Then the next release of redhat is now called Fedora Core which is the open source of the Redhat distros. Centos is more closer related to the RHEL distros of Redhat. But over all they are RPM base installitions. I kind of refer to things like Redhat/Redhat clones like Fedora Core and Centos. Over all with RHEL you can buy tech support.
