Web Authentication Problem

Postby kashbrok » Tue Jul 05, 2011 12:19 pm


I just want to start this off with a disclaimer: I am completely new to Nagios and rough in linux.

Roughly around the time the last engineer left web authentication broke for our Nagios install. When I as digging around I couldn't find any traces of certain steps of the setup related to authentication ie: .htaccess or *.users files. I made those changes and still haven't had any luck and web authentication is still broken, but alerts are still being sent out via email. Can someone suggest where I should start digging and what I should backup before I really start digging?

Check your apache configs for where the user authorization file is for the /nagios web alias, most installs have this as htpasswd.users by default. You can use the htpasswd command to reset passwords for users if needed.

htpasswd <auth_file> -c <username>

If you need more details go ahead and post a reply.
