    I use your helpful guide for how to monitoring the server with munin.
    But I have problems...

    When I'm trying to access munin through the browser ( get "You don't have permission to access /monitoring/ on this serve"
    My munin configure file:

    dbdir /var/lib/munin
    htmldir /var/www/vhosts/
    logdir /var/log/munin
    rundir /var/run/munin

    use_node_name yes

    The /var/www/vhosts/ dir doesn't contain any files. while I search the folder munin, I found this /var/www/munin dir that contain localdomain dir with all the image on it,index, style and etc.

    Hi zcworld,
    Thank you for the fast reply.

    I used this code:
    chown munin:munin /var/www/
    To give to munin group and user access to monitoring folder. But I don't know if apache give them access, since I don't how to do it (I'm beginner).

    Can you tell me how to do it if you can?

    chown apache:munin /var/www/path/to/munin
    see if thats works

    There you set apache (user) to have access and the group (munin) to have access
    so any users in the munin group can still have access to what level the group is set at

    im still a tab new to the chmod command line myself ... hope it help in a way ... when i get home i will have a look at it a bit more

    Hi again,

    First, thank you for the support;)

    I typed this command: chown apache:munin /var/www/vhosts/

    but I get this error: chown: `apache:munin': invalid user

    chown www:munin

    if you get an error
    look at the Apache httpd.conf file
    and see what user its runs under
    it maybe like www-data or www-user

    and what howto did you use for the setup / OS

    I get this error: chown: `www:munin': invalid user

    I looked on the httpd.conf file but his empty, I understend that the
    apache2.conf on debian replace him. I looked on
    apache2.conf and I found this:

    <IfModule mpm_worker_module>
    StartServers 2
    MaxClients 300
    MinSpareThreads 25
    MaxSpareThreads 75
    ThreadsPerChild 25
    MaxRequestsPerChild 0

    User www-data
    Group www-data

    this is what you meant?

    My OS is Debian and I used this guide:

    I used www-data, but it's still doesn't give munin rights to create files on
    /var/www/vhosts/ :(

    If I change the htmldir back to /var/www/munin, everything OK - it's creating the all files. but I can't access /var/log/munin through the browser.
