Cacti, DirectAdmin : Install Spine 0.8.7d as a poller instead of a default one.

By BXTra | Fri, 05/29/2009 - 22:01
I would like to use Spine instead of default Cacti's poller. At first, I'm thinking about to use Dag repository. It should work easily if I don't have DirectAdmin installed. However, I do have DirectAdmin installed and that caused dependencies problem when I tried to yum install it. So, I need to compile Spine by myself. I checked at Cacti website and found "Compiling Spine for Redhat/Fedora Linux" The steps seem to be easy but it's not. I got and error :

Cacti : Upgrade from version 0.8.7b to version 0.8.7d

It's been a while that I do nothing with Cacti. So, I decided to upgrade Cacti from version 0.8.7b ( ) to version 0.8.7d. 1. Get Cacti version 0.8.7d shell> cd /var/www/html shell> wget 2. Change directory of Cacti 0.8.7b (Old) to something Else. Then, extract Cacti 0.8.7d and change directory name to the one we use. shell> mv cacti cacti_old_version shell> tar xzvf cacti-0.8.7d.tar.gz

Steps how to install Cacti on CentOS 5.2 + DirectAdmin

First of all, I'm not an Linux/DirectAdmin expert. I just played around with them and found the way to do it. I tried to install Cacti on my server but I couldn't find a complete instruction to do it. So, I just gathered all information I found into one place so that it is easier for many others. I hope it can help someone that needs the same thing that I did.

The software I use:

- CentOS 5.2 - 64-bit
- DirectAdmin 1.323 - Custombuild 1.1.13
     - PHP 5 - CGI
     - Apache 2.2
     - MySQL 5
- Cacti 0.8.7b
