Error Drawing Graph and pollers not running - Ubuntu 18.04 manual install

I’m seeing this problem quite a bit, and I believe a quick update to the install docs could really help users in my situation. I followed the install docs at to the letter, and it resulted in the poller not running. The solution for me was easy - I ran the line from the cron file mentioned under “Cron job” manually and found I was missing the mysql python module. A quick “apt install python-mysqldb” fixed the problem.

I think that newer users would really appreciate it if, in the install docs, “python-mysqldb” was included in the “required packages” section, or if a note was added in the “Cron job” section to run “apt install python-mysqldb”.


You can edit the docs press the pencil on top right and submit the change. It would helpful to everyone.
