My nagios is all installed and set up to monitor one host. I can tell the backend is working because I can browse the text version of the log and I see it has ping information and htttp/OK information for the host I set up.
The web interface is set up for the most part also. I can point a browser to the server with nagios and I get the nagios menus. By the way authentication is turned off so the entire world should be open. This is an intranet server and I will slowly lock it down. So CGI authentication should not be a problem.
However when I select any option from the nagios web interface I keep getting “There doesn’t appear to be any service status information in the status log…” … same thing with host status. I can browse the text log in /var/log/nagios and I can plainly see the service/hosts/program sections in the status.log. My config is set up to read this log. I know it sees the log because before the log was under /usr/local/nagios/var and the web interface said that the log file could not be found. I updated the config, moved the log file to /var/log/nagios and now the web interface appears to see the log but just says it cann get any detailed information from it.
I’ve gone through a complete reinstall twice and I am at my wits end.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
