VMWare appliance to run a Cacti station

Using this in production, a few slight problems but on the whole pretty damn good!

Need to watch out if an unclean shutdown that /usr/opt/apache/logs/httpd.pid is removed for the apache daemon to run on reboot, can always check to see if httpd process is running and restart if necessary.

Also need to watch disk space, logs etc. can eat them up, check with df -h that capacity isn't all used up.

Easy one to release space is the cacti.log file, just remove from /usr/opt/apache/htdocs/cacti/log
