How to Install MRTG


Steps for MRTG installation are documented as

MRTG Installation

Make sure MRTG is NOT installed.
Type: rpm -e mrtg
It should come back with: error: package mrtg is not installed.
download mrtg-2.9.17-1cpanel.i386.rpm

We now need to remove some things that are not compatible.

rpm -e --nodeps libpng10

cd /usr/lib
ln -s

Now we are ready to start MRTG for the first time.

/etc/rc.d/init.d/mrtg restart

This will most likely cause errors, and you will have to run

/etc/rc.d/init.d/mrtg restart

probably 3-5 more times to eliminate all of the errors.
If after restarting 5 times you receive this error: ls: /var/spool/exim/input/*-H: No such file or directory Exit SSH, and then reconnect to your server as root and

/etc/rc.d/init.d/mrtg restart

That should fix the problem, if not give it 1 day and then restart again and see if the error is fixed. This error is related to files not being created yet
