    Why not post in that thread where people are actively working on the installs. Getting MRTG running requires reading the docs and compiling/configuring it correctly unless you can find a package that is available like the one in the thread.

    I am running centos 4 and I was able to install it with these exact instructions:

    1: rpm -e mrtg
    2: rpm http://www.interxstream.com/mrtg-2.9.17-1cpanel.i386.rpm -Uvh
    3: cd /usr/lib
    4: mv libpng.so.2 libpng.so.2.OLD
    5: ln -s libpng.so.3 libpng.so.2
    6: pico /etc/sysconfig/i18n
    7: change LANG to LANG="en_US"
    8: Start and stop MTRG several times ignoring errors ... service mrtg start/stop/restart
    9: chkconfig --add mrtg
    10. Add this line to httpd.conf at ver top: Alias /mrtg/ /usr/local/apache/htdocs/mrtg/
    11. Restart httpd - httpd stop -> httpd startssl
    11: Now check http://YourMainIP/mrtg/

    Don't forget the trailing "/" on step 11....

    Regards,
    Damion

    Just run the following command and it will install mrtg automatically for you.

    yum install mrtg

    For some reason it seems that UPCP breaks MRTG every night. I installed this yesterday, everything was working until this morning, where I started getting a ton of errors. Which I didnt copy.

    Then I tried to restart MRTG by doing a service mrtg restart, and it was unrecognized. I was able to start it by doing a /usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg start and then it still wasnt working, so what happened?

    I do a chkconfig --list |grep mrtg and its not there anymore.

    I try to do a chkconfig --add mrtg and I get an error.

    chkconfig --add mrtg
    error reading information on service mrtg: No such file or directory

    With witch install did you do it:

    [recommended]yum install mrtg

    or

    1: rpm -e mrtg
    2: rpm http://www.interxstream.com/mrtg-2.9...panel.i386.rpm -Uvh
    3: cd /usr/lib
    4: mv libpng.so.2 libpng.so.2.OLD
    5: ln -s libpng.so.3 libpng.so.2
    6: pico /etc/sysconfig/i18n
    7: change LANG to LANG="en_US"
    8: Start and stop MTRG several times ignoring errors ... service mrtg start/stop/restart
    9: chkconfig --add mrtg
    10. Add this line to httpd.conf at ver top: Alias /mrtg/ /usr/local/apache/htdocs/mrtg/
    11. Restart httpd - httpd stop -> httpd startssl
    11: Now check http://YourMainIP/mrtg/

    If it is the last you can fix it by the following way:
    pico /etc/yum.conf
    find: exclude=httpd* mysql* php* perl* spamassassin* mod_ssl* kernel* courier* apache* exim*

    add: libpng* png*


    Good luck!

    Well, I made the changes and MRTG has been destroyed again.

    Here are a few things that start appearing in the console.

    This is the script that mrtg.cfg uses.

    Maybe just un install it and use, because the mrtg is very old:

    yum install mrtg

    I know about the mrtg.cfg file, the problem is upcp breaks it. Anyhow, I found something that may fix it.
