This is the first development/testing branch of the Nagios 3.x code. It fixes a number of reported bugs that are present in 3.0.6 and includes a new feature that will check for new releases of Nagios.

Possible alerting bug
Version No. after Upgrading to 3.1.0

Maybe just a bug, but I am no longer able to refresh a display screen such as Services, Hosts, etc., without it going back to the Home Page. Browser is Firefox 3.0.5/Windows, Nagios is running on RedHat EL5.3.



Disgin bug, when upgrading to 3.1.0 the home page is still showing 3.0.6.
However the sub page are showing 3.1

3.1.0 install index, main and side as php pages, while in 3.0.6 they are HTML pages. the old html pages re not deleted and probably have priority in your web server. rename the three HTML files to BAK and the version becomes correctly 3.1.0.

At the same time 3.1.0 reports a newer version available… 3.0.6 :slight_smile:


How do you install side and main as php pages? Is this an option when installing 3.1? Can the side.html and main.html be changed to side.php and main.php?


Are you installing or upgrading? the problem i described should only happen when upgrading.
