Installing ntop for ClearOS

Installing ntop for ClearOS is trivial. Here’s what you need to do:

#yum --enablerepo=base-extras install ntop

Then set a password:

#ntop -A

Lastly, start the service:

#service ntop start

If you want to be able to control ntop from the webconfig interface you need to add a line to the ‘‘ file:

#vi /var/webconfig/api/

Then paste the following into the array:

"ntop"        => array("ntop",    "ntop",        "yes",  "Ntop",                 "no",  null),

After this, you can control it from the webconfig interface or set it to automatically start during start up. If you don’t want to add it to the webconfig interface but, still want it to automatically start during start up run:

#chkconfig ntop on

That’s it! Congratulations! You have successfully installed ntop for ClearOS!
