I've just installed munin on my CentOS server but I can't get it to output anything to the html directory I set in /etc/munin/munin.conf htmldir /home/mydir/munin

In /var/log/munin/munin-graph.log I get errors like: 2011/09/23 12:35:30 [RRD ERROR] Unable to graph /home/mydir/munin/localhost/localhost/memory-year.png : Opening '/home/mydir/munin/localhost/localhost/memory-year.png' for write: Permission denied

permissions on /home/mydir/munin are: drwxrwxr-x 2 munin munin 4096 Sep 23 12:31 munin

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

So I managed to work around this by moving the htmldir to /var/www/munin where it's able to be written to and pointing apache conf to there. – Mark Robinson Sep 23 '11 at 17:24

Also you need to check is SELinux running. Maybe SELinux ic blocking this writes.
