Re: " [email protected] [/usr/local/nagios/libexec]# ./check_mysql

That tells me that you are trying to access a mysql database as root user and that you have supplied no login password. Surely, the root user has a password, so if you corrected that, it should work. BTW, you should run the scripts as the nagios user, since that is how NAGIOS will run them. Don’t run them as root, since that is not a true test of the script.
