[hobbit] Editing thresholds from a web page.

Version 0.2 is now available for download. It fixes an issue relating to
hosts not loading. Hopefully that was the one you saw Steve.


It also fixes a couple of other minor things including removing a hardcoded
directory in one of the html header files.

Hi David,


Ok, so I downloaded the scripts from sourceforge. I couldn't find them on
xymonton. What I have might not be your latest. So, the fixes I had to make
might be unneeded on a later version, but:


The first thing was that the first edit-thresholds page had no hosts loaded.
I fixed that. The next problem is that it isn't actually making the changes
I've entered. An error from the web server (which might not have anything to
do with this behavior) is:


File does not exist: /opt/www2/htdocs/menu, referer:


It's true that my apache home dir is /opt/www2 and the htdocs dir is htdocs,
but where is it getting the path to menu there, which doesn't exist. I've
searched through everything I can think of. I've obviously overlooked


If I fix this error and it still doesn't make the changes I'll look further.


Any ideas? I'm excited to get this working. It should save me a significant
amount of time if my co-admins could make these changes without asking me to
edit the files!

Yes I think that might be a good idea. Just beware of the two bugs that
currently exist.

Hi, David !

thanks, for the scripts !

I recognize, that the scripts didn't make a backup of hobbit-clients.cfg ...

Maybe, we could added a backupfunction with timestamp  ?

thanks & cheeers
