Nagios Fusion - Enabling Relative URLs


This KB article shows you how to configure Nagios Fusion to use relative URLs. Relative URLs may be required when accessing your Nagios Fusion server via a proxy server.


Enable Relative URLs

Establish a terminal session to your Nagios fusion server and execute the following command to open the config.inc.php file in vi:

vi /usr/local/nagiosfusion/html/config.inc.php

When using the vi editor, to make changes press i on the keyboard first to enter insert mode. Press Esc to exit insert mode.


Find the force_relative_path line in the file and change it to true. If the line doesn't exist then simply add it, making sure it ends with a comma (,).

    $cfg = array(

'force_relative_path' => true,

'root_dir' => '/usr/local/nagiosfusion',


When you have finished, save the changes in vi by typing:


and press Enter.


After making these changes you need to restart the Apache web server using one of the commands below:

RHEL 6 | CentOS 6 | Oracle Linux 6

service httpd restart


RHEL 7 | CentOS 7 | Oracle Linux 7

systemctl restart httpd.service


Ubuntu 14

service apache2 restart


Debian | Ubuntu 16/18

systemctl restart apache2.service


Once you have performed these steps the Nagios Fusion server will now use relative URLs.
