I just wanted to say that i’m pretty new at linux and especially nagios, i’v been working on this for probably at least 50 hrs and going no where.
To make things easier on my i have been using the Debian testing load.
I load up the OS then run the command
apt-get install nagios2 nagios2-plugin
it downloads and configures nagios2 and apache2
when it runs i got 500 internal server error, upon viewing the logs it stated that the htpasswd.users file can not be found in /etc/nagios2/
i ran the command
httpasswd -c /etc/nagios2/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin
it creates the file and you can see the nagios admin entry
i have also tryed
chmod 777 /etc/nagios2/htpass.users
Then when i try to go to the web interface i am prompted for the user name and password, but nothing works!!!
if i comment out the authentication command in the apache config and i change cgi.cfg to not require authentication i can get in to the web interface just i am not able to use and commands from it
I have included a code of the apache file
[code]# apache configuration for nagios 2.x
note to users of nagios 1.x:
throughout this file are commented out sections which preserve
backwards compatibility with bookmarks/config for nagios 1.x. simply
look for lines following “nagios 1.x:” comments.
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/nagios2 /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios2
ScriptAlias /nagios2/cgi-bin /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios2
#ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/nagios /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios2
#ScriptAlias /nagios/cgi-bin /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios2
Where the HTML pages live
Alias /nagios2 /usr/share/nagios2/htdocs
#Alias /nagios /usr/share/nagios2/htdocs
AllowOverride AuthConfig Order Allow,Deny Allow From All AuthName "Nagios Access" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /etc/nagios2/htpasswd.users # nagios 1.x: #AuthUserFile /etc/nagios/htpasswd.users require valid-user
Where the stylesheets (config files) reside
#Alias /nagios2/stylesheets /etc/nagios2/stylesheets
#Alias /nagios/stylesheets /etc/nagios2/stylesheets
any help will be greatly appreciated
