How to install cacti on Debian 7

Installing cacti on Debian 7 is very easy. Issue an apt-get install cacti Then follow the prompts for mysql root password and cacti db password (which it creates). Then go to http://localhost/cacti Click next and confirm a few options. Login with admin/admin It will then ask you to change the default password.

Depends: libssl0.9.8 (>= 0.9.8m-1) but it is not installable

I was setting up a webserver on Debian 7 but ran in to a dependency issue for nginx. It said I needed libssl0.9.8. Well I had libssl1.0.x which left me wondering was it in compatible. Yes it is. I needed to download the deb and install it. wget the correct deb Then install it.
