when i verify using nagios -v, 0 warnings and 0 errors, can you help me?

when do you get the error? on startup? doesn’t it give you a filename or something?

That means that nagios is not running. do this
ps -ef|grep nagios
if you get no output, then nagios is not running.
if you get something like this, /usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg then nagios is running, so kill it.
Then start nagios by hand and see what you get. /usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg
In your console, it may complain about something. Let us know what you got/get.
