Cannot log into Nagios web interface


#1

Help! first of all, i’am a Linux retard. i just started learning the ins and outs of the system. anyway, i followed the nagios docs very closely, and everything seems to be working fine. But, when i go to localhost/nagios/ the login box comes up. i put in nagiosadmin and password and I cannot login. does anyone have any ideas? I need to get this up and running for the company im working for.

thanks,

im running fedora 6, nagios 2. not the newest one, and apache

anyhelp would be great!

Did you add a .htaccess file and point it to a .htpassword file and enable authentication in the CGI configuration file?

This page has some detail on it.
