Ok, back. I have it running, sort of. But it keep losing comm with the ups.
I started it with the usbhid-ups _d _d _d -a myups, and htop shows its
running as the user 'ups', so that's one small victory.
Now, I have done a single 'service ups start' which reports success for the
monitor I believe.
But, I have moved the cgi-bin/ups tree to nearly every directory on my drive,
but when I open the 'index.html' file in firefox, the lower two buttons
Firefox can't find the file at /cgi-bin/nut/upsstats.cgi.
This install was built with --prefix=/usr. Surely it doesn't want /cgi-bin
off the root of the drive? But if I make a /cgi-bin, and move /var/www/cgi-
bin/nut to /cgi-bin/nut, now its asking me what to do with an amiga
compressed archive named upsstats.cgi when I click on stats, ditto for the
config when I click on it.
Something is confused here, and I don't think its all me. Where do I put
those miss-placed files so it stands a snowballs chance in that famous place
Better yet, edit this ./configure line so that it Just Works(TM), with the
cgi-bin stuff actually installed in /var/www/cgi-bin like it should be.
[root at coyote nut-2.4.1]# ./configure --with-user=ups --with-group=nut --with-
usb --with-cgi --with-hal --with-lib --prefix=/usr
And restarting it with the /etc/init.d/ups script fails yet.
