Error in Nagios log

Postby devilsguest » Tue Apr 09, 2013 8:44 am

What happens if I see an error in Nagios.log. This is what the error is saying
No such file or directory: Could not open password file: /usr/local/etc/nagios/htpasswd.users
.Do you think it's just the same error in apache that is sending to nagios.log after a little config changes?

Have you created the file yet?
Code: Select all
htpasswd -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin
ls -l /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users

Make it available for the user who runs httpd.
Code: Select all
chmod o+r /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users

Restart the httpd service.
Code: Select all
service httpd restart
