PNP4Nagios Installation Help


#1

Hi all,

I don’t use Linux as much as I should and am having some difficulties with knowing how to install the prerequisites for PNP4Nagios. The following are the requirements and I would like to know what the ‘yum install’ commands would be:

[list]Perl >= 5.x without additional modules
RRDtool >= 1.x, better 1.2 but not compulsory. Attention: installing RRDtool without a packet manager might lead to missing dejavu fonts. If you see graphs without text then this may be the cause.
PHP >= 5.2. for the Webfrontend based on Kohana
PHP-extension zlib, session and GD.
Nagios >= 2.x or Icinga
Kohana needs the module “mod_rewrite” to be enabled. For details please have a look at the documentation of your web-server specific to your distribution.[/list:u]

Have already got Nagios 3.2.1 installed and working but just need some help with knowing how to install the above requirements on my CentOS 5.5 installation.

Thanks.

Pete.

Hi Pete, long time… :stuck_out_tongue:

i’d recommend you look for yum search or yum info… something which finds the packages containing certain strings in the name and start from there. (in debian it’s “aptitude search”).

mod_rewrite install is probably: “a2enmod rewrite”
