 +==== Start System Services ====
  
 +Cacti requires the following system services (daemons) to be started. 
 +  * crond\\ starts cacti polling
 +  * mysqld\\ stores all administrative data for cacti
 +  * httpd\\ provides the cacti web interface
 +  * snmpd (optional)\\ on the local server is required to poll its snmp based performance data
 +
 +You should ensure, that on a system restart, those services are restarted as well. System start procedures are under heavy development these days. We have SysV init scripts, upstart and systemd. So things may change ...
 +
 +This example assumes that we're dealing with the //httpd// web service. **Please apply the same procedure to all services above.**
 +
 +Here's how to start //httpd// as a service. Make sure, that //httpd// is listed as a service by issuing
 +<code>
 +chkconfig --list|grep httpd
 +</code>
 +Activate //httpd// by
 +<code>
 +chkconfig httpd on
 +</code>
 +to find sth like
 +<code>
 +chkconfig --list|grep httpd
 +httpd          0:Off 1:Off 2:On 3:On 4:On 5:On 6:Off
 +</code>
 +Now start the service via
 +<code>
 +service httpd start
 +</code>
 +Verify via 
 +<code>
 +service httpd status
 +</code>
