Hello Expert's,

I am very new to Naigos , tried to install nagios xi on my local machine. installation is failed with below error. kindly help us on it

Code: Select all

httpd: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443

Installation step failed - exiting.
Check for error messages in the install log (install.log).

If you require assistance in resolving the issue, please include install.log
in your communications with Nagios XI technical support.

The script that failed was: './11-sourceguardian'

I do see error " (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443" already running. vmware is using that httpd port.

If VMWare is using port 443, then Apache won't be able to bind to that port when it starts up. If it can't bind to that port, Apache won't start, and you won't get an interface to Nagios. Is it possible for VMWare to bind to a different port? If you can do this, then you can pick up the installation from where it left off.

As far as an uninstall script, I don't believe we have one. Generally once Nagios is deployed to a server, that server's job is to run Nagios. This is especially true now that we've moved from physical to virtual machines.
