Problem with MySQL


#1

Hi,

I’ve encountered a critical error in Nagios 1.2. I’m using Nagios to monitor MySQL server, but however Nagios gives me a critical error stating –

Access denied for user: ‘[email protected]’ (Using password: YES)

I’ve tried following the steps as described in arthur.ath.cx/doc/nagios-mysql/README.mysql, but I still can’t seem to fix it. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

:slight_smile:


#2

Do you have any checks at all currently working in nagios?
Is the MySQL server on the same box as the nagios server?
Is the MySQL server serving anything correctly?


#3

Go to the server that is running MySQL and try logging into the mysql server using the user nagios.
It looks like you didn’t supply the pluggin a password to use.
