[install-webconf] Error 71 (MacOS 10.14)

Postby aewilliams » Mon Nov 05, 2018 12:50 pm

Hi All,

Apologies if this has been addressed before, I've found lots of posts similar but not the same... If somebody can shed some light own resolving error detailed below.

:nagioscore-nagios-4.4.2 admin$ sudo make install-webconf
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 sample-config/httpd.conf /opt/local/apache2/conf/extra/nagios.conf
install: /opt/local/apache2/conf/extra/nagios.conf: No such file or directory
make: *** [install-webconf] Error 71

Looking at lots of posts and they appear to reflect linux installations but not MacOS, can anybody help?

Kind regards,

Are you following any particular documentation for installing Nagios Core? Perhaps the official documentation for OSX?
https://support.nagios.com/kb/article/n ... Apple_OS_X

All that make step does is write some Apache configurations. If it's failing, my first thought would be either no Apache or a lack of perms to write to the configs path.

As @mcapra pointed out, it's just going to be copying sample-config/httpd.conf to /opt/local/apache2/conf/extra/nagios.conf. It's likely permissions or something isn't installed or where it is expected to be. You could try manually copying the config file as a troubleshooting step or work around.
