cacti w/server 2003 Tags: Servers MySQL Apps Last response: December 14, 2005 5:40 PM in Applications Share yiuwing625 December 9, 2005 7:30:03 PM I am new to cacti. I am sure that it is much easier to do with Linux, but I want to drive myself crazy so I am trying to get it to run on Windows. I have run into some problems trying to install Cacti with Windows. So far I have installed: php 5.0.5 Apache/2.0.55 (Win32) MySQL Administrator 1.1 MySQL Server 5.0 net-snmp version 5.1.3 cacti-0.8.6g cactid-0.8.6f ActivePerl-126.96.36.1995 ---------------------------------------------- My cactid.conf file DB_Host 127.0.0.1 DB_Database cacti DB_User root DB_Pass cactiuser My problem is running cactid from command line. This is the output I get. C:cactid>cactid CACTID: Using cactid config file [cactid.conf] CACTID: MYSQL: Connection Failed: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) I am stuck, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Try using your admin account at first.. and if that works, create an account that is strictly for SQL/Cacti support. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
