Lock file could not be found


everytime I try to start nagios, i get this error message:

No lock file found in /usr/loical/nagios/var/nagios.lock.
I’m new in Linux and I’m wondering what’s causing this?

Thanks for your help


Nagios is not starting and that’s why you see that error.
Fix your config files and verify with the -v switch as instructed in the docs BEFORE you attempt to start nagios.
