Apache And MySQL Monitoring With Bijk On Debian Lenny - Page 2

7.5 - Restart your Apache server with this command:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

You need to have the module **mod_status.c** installed.

This module is included with Apache2 in Debian by default.

You can **check** your previous changes with:


If your Apache2 does not listen to the localhost IP on a standard port ( or - you can check with command

netstat -tlpn | grep apache

), you will have to do the following:


7.5.1 - Edit file:

nano /etc/bijk/plugins.yml


7.5.2 - Add/change the following node (**other** and **default** are simply instance names):

default: http://YOUR_IP:YOUR_PORT/server-status?auto
other: http://OTHER_IP:OTHER_PORT/server-status?auto


7.5.3 - Restart Bijk-node:

/etc/init.d/bijk-node restart



Add the primary IP address of your server to the "<Location /server-status>" section of your Apache configuration file and restart the Apache server.


Step 8 - Configure MySQL graphs


In the file /etc/bijk/plugins.yml, under the 'mysql' node, set the variable 'user' to 'bijk' and the variable 'pass' to your required password (the default is just an instance name):

user: bijk
pass: s3cr3t


8.2 - Restart the Bijk-node deamon:

/etc/init.d/bijk-node restart


8.3 - Run the mysql console with root permissions (or with permissions to create new user)



8.4 - Create a new 'bijk' user without database permissions and access only from the localhost:

CREATE USER 'bijk'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '{random_password}';


8.5 - To verify this user access, you can issue the following command from localhost shell:

mysql -u bijk -p{random_password}

(There is no space between -p and {random_password}.)


8.6 - Your MySQL graphs will be online in Bijk within 30 minutes of changing these settings.

That's it. Bijk will create all your performance graphs like CPU, load and traffic. Here's a screenshot of Bijk in action:
