The RPM install of Nagios was fairly strait forward. I installed the RPMs for Nagios and the Nagios-plugins along with the misc. required RPMs. Unfortunatly, all the documentation is written toward a non rpm install.
The RPM file added all the appropriate httpd.conf configurations, and I setp up proper users, etc. It is viewable at:
[root@server nagios]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/nagios start
Starting network monitor: nagios
CONFIG ERROR! Start aborted. Check your Nagios configuration.
I just cannot get it to run and cannot see the issue with the Nagios config.
I even altered ownership info in the ‘nagios.conf’ to root:
This determines the effective user that Nagios should run as.
You can either supply a username or a UID.
This determines the effective group that Nagios should run as.
You can either supply a group name or a GID.
Anybody have an idea of where i went wrong?
