Suggested change to linux install script

Post by reez88 »

Just installed the agent on ubuntu. Initially failed at the "ls -l /agent/otm_linux". Noticed that the script uses absolute $start/otm_linux in all places except where the binary is written to a local file (below). In my instance I was in a different folder than /admin, so the script failed until I added the absolute path as well. For consistency it would be useful to update this in the script so all 7 references to otm_linux are consistent :

curl -m 30 --connect-timeout 15 "$BINARY_LOCATION" -o otm_linux

Thankyou very much.

Just in terms of how I'm using outages.io, I've been having a number of issues/outages with my home broadband lately, so was just looking for a simple and lightweight tool to do constant monitoring, with the aim of having list of outages to discuss when I contact their support line.
