To set up apcupsd on SME 7.4


First setup DAG repository

http://wiki.contribs.org/Dag

INSTALL APCUPSD

yum install --enablerepo=dag --enablerepo=base apcupsd

COPY ORIGINAL CONF

cp /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf.orig

COPY CGI FILES

cp /var/www/apcupsd/* /home/e-smith/files/ibays/Primary/cgi-bin/

LINK STARTUP SCRIPT

ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/e-smith-service /etc/rc7.d/S99apcupsd

SET SERVICE IN SME

config set apcupsd service status enabled

Edit /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf. The conf file has good detail on setup options.

Suggest setting the TIMEOUT to 600 seconds; You shouldn't let UPS batteries run down to 5% (default) as this massively shortens their life. Set TIMEOUT to 10 for testing.

Reboot or /etc/init.d/apcupsd start to start the service.
