Upgrade notes

Upgrading Munin from 2.0.x to 2.1.x

Munin HTTPD

munin-httpd replaces FastCGI. It is a basic webserver capable of serving pages and graphs.

To add transport layer security or authentication, use a webserver with more features as a proxy.

If you choose to use munin-httpd, set graph_strategy and html_strategy to “cgi”.

FastCGI

…is gone. It was hard to set up, hard to debug, and hard to support.

Upgrading Munin from 1.x to 2.x

This is a compilation of items you need to pay attention to when upgrading from Munin 1.x to munin 2.x

FastCGI

Munin graphing is now done with FastCGI.

Munin HTML generation is optionally done with FastCGI.

Logging

The web server needs write access to the munin-cgi-html and munin-cgi-graph logs.
