Validate.php error after installation of weathermap


I have installed and configured weathermap plugin with the help of below video tutorial.

Everything works fine but if I run the ./vaidate.php afterwards then I get the following error.

[OK] Composer Version: 1.10.13
[OK] Dependencies up-to-date.
[OK] Database connection successful
[OK] Database schema correct
[WARN] Your install is over 24 hours out of date, last update: Sat, 19 Sep 2020 23:24:53 +0000
Make sure your cron is running and run ./ by hand to see if there are any errors.
[FAIL] We have found some files that are owned by a different user than librenms, this will stop you updating automatically and / or rrd files being updated causing graphs to fail.
sudo chown -R librenms:librenms /opt/librenms
sudo setfacl -d -m g::rwx /opt/librenms/rrd /opt/librenms/logs /opt/librenms/bootstrap/cache/ /opt/librenms/storage/
sudo chmod -R ug=rwX /opt/librenms/rrd /opt/librenms/logs /opt/librenms/bootstrap/cache/ /opt/librenms/storage/

Setting the chown Fix breaks my weathermap.

What should I do?


set chmod o+r to your ne.conf file


sudo chmod o+r ne.conf

After running the above. I still have the same error on Validate.

/opt/librenms/html/plugins/Weathermap/configs$ ls -l
total 12
-rw-r–r-- 1 librenms librenms 51 Sep 17 20:48 index.php
-rw-r–r-- 1 www-data www-data 6050 Sep 21 13:54 ne.conf

you can either fix that by following the new install docs, or ignore it.

Ignore is better option :slight_smile:
