It appears as though Nagios is not running, so commands are


…is the message.

I know that this has been discussed severall times…Unfortunately i read many of them and didn’t solve my problem.

Ok, the facts: I installed nagios 1.2 with MySQL-db. As i can see on the perfdata, logging of them works. Nagios-plugins are 1.4.2.

If i try “” as root or nagios, it works!
What do you need else to help me?

Can someone help me out step by step? I soon need to have the management-options in nagios that are provided by this feature…

Kind regards, Qeldroma

yes, it is:
9804 nagios nagios 9804 /usr/nagios/bin/nagios -d / S ? 00:01:02 /usr/nagios/bin/nagios -d /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg


This is my nagios check command in cgi.cfg. Try it.
nagios_check_command=/usr/bin/perl /usr/local/nagios/libexec/
There is a space between perl and /usr and that is all one line.


Oh well, yes, i tried it like this, mine is with leading “/usr/lib/perl”, too…

Inbetween i changed it to World-read/write/executable. No influence, error keeps on…


Oh, now it works, but all i did was restarting the server:?::?:?

Hum… seems that restarting the nagios and the apache is not enough to reset the sytem to the actual config…

Thanks so far, Qeldroma


Yes, restarting nagios, apache and maybe mysql is all that is involved. I suspect, that you have more than one nagios installation.
