Nagios hangs at startup


Ok, I thought I had everything covered. Nagios hangs when I start it up at -----

Nagios 2.7 starting… (PID=6362)

and then nothing ever happens, I see the items in my web browser but nothing is resolving (pings or replies yet)
its like nagios never finishes starting up.

Zero problems when I run

./nagios -v /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg
"Things look okay - No serious problems were detected during the pre-flight check"

Any help? I’ve been looking hardcore through forums and nagios docs.

Appreciate anything –
