FAQ Database : Nagios : Installing

Title:The etc/ subdirectory is missing from my Nagios installation. Whats the deal?
FAQ ID:F0049

Description:

After compiling and installation Nagios, user discovers that the etc subdirectory off the installation point (i.e. /usr/local/nagios/etc) is missing.

 

Solution:

This is normal for a new install. The etc subdirectory is not automatically created when you do a 'make install'. If you want to install sample configuration files for Nagios (and have the etc subdirectory created for you), use the 'make install-config' command.
