New Cacti install wizard Bash script on my GITHUB

Hey Everyone

Just wanted to share some of my latest work  I have developed an interactive install wizard for Cacti written in BASH

this script is currently written for Debian based systems but I am working on others

Some of the main features are

-download either chosen or latest version of cacti
-autoconfigure database either with defaults or chose credentials
-auto tunes MariaDB using cacti recommended settings
-auto-populates cacti database
-downloads all needed packages for cacti install
-asks if you want to install spine if so it will automatically compile it
-adds system user and assigns permissions to folders
-downloads and installs plugins


This script will get the system ready to run cacti you will still need to run the cacti web installer after this script is done 🙂

you can get a copy of the script here @
