Description Darren Henderson 2021-11-28 01:55:43 UTC
service librenms start fails. /var/log/librenms/librenms-service.log showing

env: php: No such file or directory
MainThread(ERROR):ERROR: Could not load or parse configuration! /usr/bin/env php /usr/local/www/librenms/config_to_json.php 2>&1: 
'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get'

The crux of the problem is that daemon starts with a very restricted path (/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin) - this causes env to fail to find php when /usr/local/www/librenms/snmp-scan.py attempts to grab the .env file.

I'm not sure what the "right" fix is for this, the two quickest work arounds are to add a soft link from /usr/bin/php to /usr/local/bin/php or adjusting the path in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/librenms to include /usr/local/bin. Neither of which I'm crazy about.

Usually, this is patched by modifying the script in question with the full path to php. re SHEBANG_FILES

A new release is available, I'm sure - I may update the port with a new release and patch this file.

What version of librenms are you running? On what version of FreeBSD please?

Apologies for neglecting to complete the summary before filing the report and for leaving out the relevant details.

I noted the issue on 13.0-RELEASE-p4. I installed librenms-21.5.1_3,1 via pkg which is tracking "latest". 

Other details in case they are helpful:

btw Dan: 21.10 would bring a useful improvement in my setting ("Infer character encoding for ifAlias and sysLocation"), so thank you very much in advance!

This may take a while. I am overwhelmed with non-FreeBSD items at present.  Sorry.
