    [NOT FOUND] Cacti Log File Path: The path to your Cacti log file.

    This should resolve your issue.
    mkdir /var/log/cacti
    touch /var/log/cacti/cacti.log

    /usr/share/cacti/log is a symlink to /var/log/cacti which doesn’t exist

    I got the same error as Saguu

      May I know on which Linux distribution version you guys trying? so that I can setup locally on my VM to test it myself and will give you proper solution to this problem. I still think its something that Cacti was not installed properly or may be bug in the cacti release..

    Hello, I just try again in a moment. But it still does not work. It seems that this is a problem of authorization on file .. What do you think?

  4. Saguu says:

    Nice job ! Perhaps, i have a problem with http://ip/cacti/install/index.php
    In this page, i have this error :

    [NOT FOUND] Cacti Log File Path: The path to your Cacti log file.

    Have you an idea for this ?



    • Ravi Saive says:


      I don’t think your Cacti installation was successful, please try to re-install again and see..

      • Saguu says:

        Nice try but it’s the second installation (clean VM). I followed your tutorial step by step. :(
        For informations : CentOS 6.8 and cacti version 0.8.8h from repo el6
