    Hi all,

        How about CentOS? This is the one that I most certainly trust. https://imagicon.info/cat/15-33/smile.png

            When installing cacti in Debian 6 it asks

            Code:
            Please provide the password for the administrative account with which this package should create its MySQL database and user. Password of the database's administrative user:
            Attachment

            I interpret this to mean the password of the MySQL root user but after entering this I get
            Code:
            ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES).
            Attachment

            So does this mean that Cacti is looking for a user called 'root' as opposed to the root user (who might go by a different name)? If so maybe this won't work because Plesk has renamed my user 'root' to 'admin'. So maybe I need to rename the user 'admin' back to 'root'.

            Thanks

              Try this, If you have root password:
              $ mysql --user=root -p
              Enter password:
              You can do the following to reset your root password:
              /etc/init.d/mysqld stop
              mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
              mysql -u root
              mysql> use mysql;
              mysql> update user set password=PASSWORD("newrootpassword") where User='root';
              mysql> flush privileges;
              mysql> quit
              /etc/init.d/mysqld stop
              /etc/init.d/mysqld start
              Edit include/config.php and specify the database type, name, host, user and password for your Cacti configuration.
              $database_type = "mysql";
              $database_default = "cacti";
              $database_hostname = "localhost";
              $database_username = "yourusername";
              $database_password = "yourpassword";
              Change yourusername on $database_username with your sql username.

              Cheers

                Hi Juc,

                I'm not sure what Cacti is looking for particularly, but i would recommend creating a second user of the db called root before renaming it back. Plesk can be a finicky beast.

                  OK thanks. Anyway if I mess something up can I restore the VPS to its original state?

                    Hi Juc,

                    Yes, Linux VPS can use Virtuozzo Power Panel to restore a VPS back the template original. You would need to purchase backups if you want state backups.

                      I have tried this but it does not seem to work - I get 'Please wait while Parallels Plesk Panel is being configured inside your VPS' but then it seems that my VPS has not been restored to its original state. Can I find a record of this in any log ie that re-initialisation has succeeded or failed?


                      Thanks

                        Hi Juc,

                        Unfortunately, there's not much troubleshooting we can do for re-initialization issues from onCloud in this forum. Please contact the myhosting.com support team for help they should have a proper and timely solution for you.

                          Ok but a more general question without getting into the details of this case - does my Parallel Plesk Panel 10 have a log of significant events somewhere?

                          Thanks

                            Yes, there are numerous log files at:

                            /usr/local/psa/admin/logs/

                            including:
                            -------------
                            panel.log
                            sitebuilder.log
                            httpsd_access_log
                            httpsd_access_log.processed


                            Probably more if you have activated additional plesk panel services.
