Title:Problems installing the Nagios CGIs with Apache 2.0's suexec module
FAQ ID:F0118
Submitted By:David Torrey Jr.

Description:

Attempting to install the Nagios CGIs on an Apache 2.0 webserver with the suexec module may cause problems.

 

Solution:

The Nagios install defaults to creating files that are group writable, while suexec refuses to run things that are group writable. Fixing the CGI permissions manually (by removing group write permissions) post-install made the problem go away.

Apache's suexec also defaults to ignoring UIDs below 100, so you may have to create a "nagios" users with a UID above 100.
