Nagios new Bee : How to view the web console of Nagios


Hi Friends,

I am new to Nagios the new assignment for me to work on Nagios which is already installed by my colleague.

The Nagios is installed and running on server 5 which is monitoring the server8.

Nrpe is running on server 8.

I am working on my local windows machine and I have already added server5 's IP address to my host file.

when I hit server5/nagios.

It is not showing me web console.

Pls help me let me know how to view it.



Hey guys i found it my Httpd web server was off.

I have just restarted it.

One more issue : now it is asking me for uid/password

One more qn in which file httpd(apache) Nagois userid and password is stored.



If you give any userid and password you will find a file with name htpasswd in /nagios/etc/ folder.


Create a nagiosadmin account for logging into the Nagios web interface. Remember the password you assign to this account - you’ll need it later.

htpasswd -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin

Restart Apache to make the new settings take effect.

service httpd restart
