Please make sure, the following packages are installed according to your operating systems requirements. Verify, that httpd and mysqld are started at system startup.
- php-ldap (when using LDAP authentication)
- net-snmp (depending on the distro, net-snmp-utils may be required)
- crond (cron, cronie or the like)
For installation of official patches, you will require some utilities
that have to be installed as well.
- “lang/php4” (With MySQL and SNMP Support)
Unfortunately, Cacti packages from different Linux distribution may deviate from the descriptions above. A further root cause of installation trouble is different file layout, e.g. between Red Hat and Debian based distributions.
