I have previously installed Nagios on CentOS and using the FAN installation successfully.
I am trying to install and configure Nagios on the newest version of Ubuntu Server without much success.
Today I installed a new version of Ubuntu server with no preconfigured packages, set the address to Static and enabled SSH.
I then followed this install guide exactly:
ubuntugeek.com/nagios-networ … buntu.html
The version of nagios I used was nagios-3.1.0.tar.gz and the plugins nagios-plugins-1.4.13.tar.gz.
When logging into the ](http://)/nagios it asks me to download a .part file.
I tried this installation yesterday on another Ubuntu server install (same version) that was already configured with webmin and a web server and the initial page loaded fine, but when clicking on any of the links on the left hand side I got the message ““Error: Could not read host and service status information!””. On this previous installation, when trying to start nagios using the command /etc/init.d/nagios start it would run for a second then stop running. On the new installation today it doesn’t even start.
