Description Vincent de Phily 2012-04-02 13:15:56 UTC
/etc/init.d/ntop checks for /var/lib/ntop/ntop_pw.db before starting. But it is often useful to have ntop data located elsewhere. It's even temptingly configurable in /etc/conf.d/ntop.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install and configure ntop
2. mv /var/lib/ntop /some/where/else/
3. $EDITOR /etc/conf.d/ntop to specify the new location
4. /etc/init.d/ntop restart
Actual Results:  
# /etc/init.d/ntop restart
 * You need to set a password first by running
 * ntop --set-admin-password
 * ERROR: ntop failed to start

Expected Results:  
# /etc/init.d/ntop restart
 * Stopping ntop ... [ ok ]
 * Starting ntop ... [ ok ]
