rrdtool install instructions

Here we will descripte how to install rrdtool into your whmcs server. if you are using cpanel most probably the rrdtool is already installed you just need to find its location and update the configuration , the default location for CPanel is : /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/

For CentOS / Redhat

1) adding the rpmforge repository to yum choose the url that correspond to your OS dist – arch from http://rpmrepo.org/RPMforge/Using execute the following command

e.g. for centOS 5 on i386 arch i will choose the following url http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm

rpm -Uhv CHOSENURL where the CHOSENURL is the url you chosed in the first step.

So for my case the command should be

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

2) to install rrdtool execute the following command

  yum -y install rrdtool

if you don’t wish that rpmForge remaining in your list of repository you can execute the following command which will remove it

  yum remove rpmforge-release

Cpanel users: RRDTOOL is installed by default into the /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/ folder. Add the trailing slash when adding the RRDTOOL path to the Xenica config.

For Ubuntu/Debian

Just install any RRDtool dep file or search for any repo that have RRDTool on it
