Ubuntu 14.04 smokeping
Smokeping is usually trivial to install on Ubuntu, but 14.04 has some extra quirks. Sigh.
If you’ve installed smokeping, configured a target and added the smokeping.conf to the apache conf-available directory, then used a2enconf to turn it on….
You might be getting ‘Service Unavailable’ on your host when you visit http://yourbox/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi.
Well, smokeping uses fastcgi so that performance doesn’t suck. You need to install the fastcgi mod.
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-fcgid
Go forth and enjoy. More on stupid apache changes later…
