-</code>For Cacti 087g the variable "URL_PATH" has been moved from global.php to config.php. The $plugins array is required for using the [[http://cactiusers.org|Plugin Architecture]] only.+</code>The $plugins array is required for using the [[http://cactiusers.org|Plugin Architecture (PIA)]] only. For legacy plugins, those that must be installed in global.php, we have moved the plugins array out of global.php and into config.php. This was done to insure that global.php remains pristine. It is a file that is not intended to be modified, so with the PIA installed, you should not have to.\\ The variable "URL_PATH" has also been moved from global.php to config.php for the same reason as the plugins arrayFor those of you upgrading from very old Plugin Architectures you should know that in the past, we attempted to "detect" this path. However, the process was not reliable. Therefore, you have to specify that path in config.php.
