Talk:Setting up Smokeping
Wrong default config
The default directories in /etc/smokeping/config do not exists.
When creating needed directories (in /var and not in /usr), do not forget to properly set ownership and access rights!
The pid should go under /var/run/smokeping.
The /usr/etc/*.dist files should be replaced by /etc/smokeping/* (without the .dist extention).
smoke:~# wget http://localhost/smokeping/smokeping.cgi Connecting to localhost (127.0.0.1:80) wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
uncomment the use of mod_cgi in /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
example of working config
*** General *** owner = My Company contact = firstname.lastname@example.org mailhost = relay.my.company 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/cache/smokeping imgurl = cache datadir = /var/data/smokeping piddir = /var/run/smokeping cgiurl = https://my.company/smokeping/smokeping.cgi smokemail = /etc/smokeping/smokemail tmail = /etc/smokeping/tmail
no slaves: comment it out in the config file.
Have to create some directories and link (in top of those described on main page):
mkdir -p /var/cache/smokeping mkdir -p /var/data/smokeping chown -R smokeping /var/cache/smokeping chown -R smokeping /var/data/smokeping ln -s /var/cache/smokeping /var/www/localost/htdocs/smokeping/cache
