Do you have an XI RPM install?

Code: Select all
rpm -qa | grep nagiosxi

Make sure the changes in the attached file are done on EL8:

What version of XI are you running?

If it is < 5.8.8 you could try an update to see if that restores the dependencies Nagios needs.

You could also go through the list of what was removed and install them again, except for any php 7.2 items

Here is a process I used on a Centos8 system:
dnf install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/e ... noarch.rpm
dnf install https://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-8.rpm
dnf module list php

Disable the 7.2 module that is enabled:
dnf module reset php:7.2
dnf module list php
dnf module enable php:remi-7.4
dnf install php php-imap php-opcache php-devel php-gd php-ldap php-mbstring php-pdo php-pdo-dblib php-mysqlnd php-pgsql php-pear
sed -i "s:;date.timezone =.*:date.timezone = ${PHPTZ}:" /etc/php.ini
cd /tmp
rm -rf /tmp/nagiosxi
wget https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nag ... est.tar.gz
tar zxf xi-latest.tar.gz
cd /tmp/nagiosxi
rm -rf /etc/php.d/sourceguardian.ini
sed -i '/^PHP script/d' xi-sys.cfg
sed -i '/^1)/d' xi-sys.cfg
sed -i '/^2)/d' xi-sys.cfg
sed -i '/^3)/d' xi-sys.cfg

Edit /etc/php.ini and add 'extension=ixed.7.4.lin' directive
; Dynamic Extensions ;

; If you wish to have an extension loaded automatically, use the following
; syntax:
; extension=modulename
; For example:
; extension=mysqli
; When the extension library to load is not located in the default extension
; directory, You may specify an absolute path to the library file:
; extension=/path/to/extension/mysqli.so
; Note : The syntax used in previous PHP versions ('extension=<ext>.so' and
; 'extension='php_<ext>.dll') is supported for legacy reasons and may be
; deprecated in a future PHP major version. So, when it is possible, please
; move to the new ('extension=<ext>) syntax.

; Note: packaged extension modules are now loaded via the .ini files
; found in the directory /etc/php.d; these are loaded by default.
; added for php 7.4

Restart the server
shutdown -r now

Since you are running Oracle Linux 8 you will need to validate this procedure on a Test Server before you
attempt to make the change on Production.

The shellinabox package needs to be re-installed on the server as the web ssh interface uses it.

Code: Select all
dnf install shellinabox

Then start the daemon and enable it to start at boot.

Code: Select all
systemctl start shellinaboxd
systemctl enable shellinaboxd

Then see if the web ssh interface works.

Thank you.
