Configure additional web user accounts?


#1

Hello everyone,

I just got nagios set up quite nicely with dozens of hosts and status maps (quite proud of myself, actually :lol: ), and now I’d like to harden my system’s security a bit.

Is it possible to add another user to the web interface login and maybe assign privileges and such to that account?

How would do this? Do I need to use the htpasswd2 -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users command again, or is there a better/different way?

That would work. Or if you really are concerned about security you could follow the instructions listed here http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/cgisecurity.html and lock it down further.
