I'm setting up my new Ubuntu 10.04 server and installed munin to view my machine's stats. It was working for a while, then I changed a couple of things (PHP spawn-fcgi to PHP FPM, reinstalled nginx) and now the graph history doesn't work.

I can see the current state, but no history on the graph:

What my munin graph looks like (sorry I can't post inline images due to reputation restrictions)

What should I do to fix it?

Are you using the cron-based or the (new 2.0) cgi graphs generation? – S19N Jan 6 '12 at 23:05
I'm using the 2.0 cgi graphs. – mr_schlomo Jan 6 '12 at 23:07

I would first try aptitude purge munin-node && aptitude install munin-node to see if it helps. Before doing this backup munin configuration and munin rrd data files.

Yep, that worked! I guess I just needed to reinstall. – mr_schlomo Jan 7 '12 at 14:35
