seems to be ok, then i command
[root@nagios-server nagios]# service nagios start
Starting nagios:CONFIG ERROR! Start aborted. Check your Nagios configuration.
I already enable the httpd, I can access the web interface to other machine, but if i click on the function ie Tackical Overview, i got this maessage:
Error: Could not read object configuration data!
Here are some things you should check in order to resolve this error:
1. Verify configuration options using the -v command-line option to check for errors.
2. Check the Nagios log file for messages relating to startup or status data errors.
Make sure you read the documentation on installing, configuring and running Nagios thoroughly before continuing. If all else fails, try sending a message to one of the mailing lists. More information can be found at http://www.nagios.org
Please help and guide, so desperate, I really nagios to work
