Page refresh after upgrade doesn't work normally


After upgrading Nagios from version 3.0.6 to 3.1.2 refresh page using F5 button stopped working normally as it was in prevoius version this means that it refreshed current page instead that it threw you back to the welcome page. Also automatic refresh stopped working. Anyone knows how to fix this problem???

Any help would be appriciated. Thanks in advance


Did you ever resolve this issue? I’m having the same problem since upgrading to 3.1.2.


Turns out Nagios 3.1.2 and onward has started to use multiple i-frames to present pages to the browsers.

So, when you hit the F4 refresh key, apparently the leftmost i-frame is handling the refresh which pops you back to the Nagios home page.

So, looks like we all have to train ourselves to start opening new windows when drilling down to view a host, or service check etc. Then, if you hit refresh, the focus will be on the active window, and not the multi i-framed Nagios main window.

Alternatively, you can always (in Firefox) right click on the frame you want to refresh, then select "“This Frame ->”, and then select “Reload Frame”.
