Doesn't start because /var/lib/ntopng is missing from the package.

@t0m5k1 Thanks for the report. I might not be able to help with this in the coming days. I would recommend to check if ntopng has trouble with the redis database or otherwise bad permissions somewhere. Might be that fresh install misses something.

Fresh installation on ArchLinux

Since installation I am unable to login with admin, admin.

I have tried the following commands:

redis-cli del ntopng.user.admin.password

this just does nothing, I'm still unable to login and after 1 single failure I get total lockout for 5 minutes.

Trying to remove the lock out with:

for k in redis-cli keys ntopng.cache.failed_logins.*; do redis-cli del $k; done

this does nothing as well.

Raised an issue on the main github repo and was asked to run:

stop ntopng

redis-cli flushall

rm -rf /var/lib/ntopng/runtimeprefs.json

restart ntopng

Then check with admin/admin again

This also failed to let me log in and was then told to come here as arch/aur is unsupported.

I was looking to purchase a license for either pro or enterprise but I won't bother, So last attempt at fixing this lays here before I jump ship to a different solution.

Thanks in advance.

@pht You should, as redis is one of the dependencies of this package, it should be waiting for redis to start.

EDIT: As far as I know you just have to add "After=redis.service" to the current ntopng@.service in the package.

EDIT2: Yes, I tested it, just add the "After=redis.service" to the service file that exists.

I had a similar problem due to race condition while starting the redis server. I've created a "wait-for-redis" service and hooked it as a dependency for ntopng. The following gists illustrate the idea:

I was not sure whether to include this hack in the base ntopng package.

Has a problem with not starting after reboots, even if you enable the service correctly, it will start but after a reboot will not start until you start it yourself.

Builds perfectly now, thank you

pht commented on 2018-12-31 09:15

Fixed. Thank you again!

Errors when "zeromq" isn't installed, needs to be a dependency.

When upgrading to 3.8, observe this field notice.

(It will warn you in ntopng UI too)
