To set up apcupsd on SME 7.4

Setup the DAG repository

The following command will configure the Dag repository on SME Server. Dag After adding it to the database we have to update the changes to the configuration file:

signal-event yum-modify

Installation

Install apcupsd

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

Copy original conf file

cp apcupsd.conf apcupsd.conf.orig

Copy CGI files

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

Link the startup script

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

Set the Service in SME

config set apcupsd service status enabled

Configuration

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.

Usage
