I followed the Nagios Quickstart Guide alright. Yeah I used that command :

Code:
/opt/lampp/bin/htpasswd -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin
The full path to nagios in my sysem is :
Code:
/usr/local/nagios
My nagios.cfg file : The file is too big. I've removed some portion of it. Which part do you need to see?

Code:
##############################################################################
#
# NAGIOS.CFG - Sample Main Config File for Nagios 3.2.0
#
# Read the documentation for more information on this configuration
# file.  I've provided some comments here, but things may not be so
# clear without further explanation.
#
# Last Modified: 12-14-2008
#
##############################################################################


# LOG FILE
# This is the main log file where service and host events are logged
# for historical purposes.  This should be the first option specified 
# in the config file!!!

log_file=/usr/local/nagios/var/nagios.log



# OBJECT CONFIGURATION FILE(S)
# These are the object configuration files in which you define hosts,
# host groups, contacts, contact groups, services, etc.
# You can split your object definitions across several config files
# if you wish (as shown below), or keep them all in a single config file.

# You can specify individual object config files as shown below:
cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/commands.cfg
cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/contacts.cfg
cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/timeperiods.cfg
cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/templates.cfg

# Definitions for monitoring the local (Linux) host
cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/localhost.cfg

# Definitions for monitoring a Windows machine
#cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/windows.cfg

# Definitions for monitoring a router/switch
#cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/switch.cfg

# Definitions for monitoring a network printer
#cfg_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/printer.cfg


# You can also tell Nagios to process all config files (with a .cfg
# extension) in a particular directory by using the cfg_dir
# directive as shown below:

#cfg_dir=/usr/local/nagios/etc/servers
#cfg_dir=/usr/local/nagios/etc/printers
#cfg_dir=/usr/local/nagios/etc/switches
#cfg_dir=/usr/local/nagios/etc/routers




# OBJECT CACHE FILE
# This option determines where object definitions are cached when
# Nagios starts/restarts.  The CGIs read object definitions from 
# this cache file (rather than looking at the object config files
# directly) in order to prevent inconsistencies that can occur
# when the config files are modified after Nagios starts.

object_cache_file=/usr/local/nagios/var/objects.cache



# PRE-CACHED OBJECT FILE
# This options determines the location of the precached object file.
# If you run Nagios with the -p command line option, it will preprocess
# your object configuration file(s) and write the cached config to this
# file.  You can then start Nagios with the -u option to have it read
# object definitions from this precached file, rather than the standard
# object configuration files (see the cfg_file and cfg_dir options above).
# Using a precached object file can speed up the time needed to (re)start 
# the Nagios process if you've got a large and/or complex configuration.
# Read the documentation section on optimizing Nagios to find our more
# about how this feature works.

precached_object_file=/usr/local/nagios/var/objects.precache



# RESOURCE FILE
# This is an optional resource file that contains $USERx$ macro
# definitions. Multiple resource files can be specified by using
# multiple resource_file definitions.  The CGIs will not attempt to
# read the contents of resource files, so information that is
# considered to be sensitive (usernames, passwords, etc) can be
# defined as macros in this file and restrictive permissions (600)
# can be placed on this file.

resource_file=/usr/local/nagios/etc/resource.cfg



# STATUS FILE
# This is where the current status of all monitored services and
# hosts is stored.  Its contents are read and processed by the CGIs.
# The contents of the status file are deleted every time Nagios
#  restarts.

status_file=/usr/local/nagios/var/status.dat



# STATUS FILE UPDATE INTERVAL
# This option determines the frequency (in seconds) that
# Nagios will periodically dump program, host, and 
# service status data.

status_update_interval=10



# NAGIOS USER
# This determines the effective user that Nagios should run as.  
# You can either supply a username or a UID.

nagios_user=nagios



# NAGIOS GROUP
# This determines the effective group that Nagios should run as.  
# You can either supply a group name or a GID.

nagios_group=nagios



# EXTERNAL COMMAND OPTION
.

.
.


# EXTERNAL COMMAND CHECK INTERVAL
 be a rare
# problem and should not happen under normal circumstances.
# If you have problems with service checks never getting
# rescheduled, make sure you have orphaned service checks enabled.
# Values: 1 = enable checks, 0 = disable checks

check_for_orphaned_services=1
check_for_orphaned_hosts=1



# SERVICE FRESHNESS CHECK OPTION
# This option determines whether or not Nagios will periodically
# check the "freshness" of service results.  Enabling this option
# is useful for ensuring passive checks are received in a timely
# manner.
# Values: 1 = enabled freshness checking, 0 = disable freshness checking

check_service_freshness=1



# SERVICE FRESHNESS CHECK INTERVAL
# This setting determines how often (in seconds) Nagios will
# check the "freshness" of service check results.  If you have
# disabled service freshness checking, this option has no effect.

service_freshness_check_interval=60



# HOST FRESHNESS CHECK OPTION
# This option determines whether or not Nagios will periodically
# check the "freshness" of host results.  Enabling this option
# is useful for ensuring passive checks are received in a timely
# manner.
# Values: 1 = enabled freshness checking, 0 = disable freshness checking

check_host_freshness=0



# HOST FRESHNESS CHECK INTERVAL
# This setting determines how often (in seconds) Nagios will

# disabled host freshness checking, this option has no effect.

host_freshness_check_interval=60




# ADDITIONAL FRESHNESS THRESHOLD LATENCY
# This setting determines the number of seconds that Nagios
# will add to any host and service freshness thresholds that
# it calculates (those not explicitly specified by the user).

additional_freshness_latency=15




# FLAP DETECTION OPTION
# This option determines whether or not Nagios will try
# and detect hosts and services that are "flapping".  
# Flapping occurs when a host or service changes between
# states too frequently.  When Nagios detects that a 
# host or service is flapping, it will temporarily suppress
# notifications for that host/service until it stops
# flapping.  Flap detection is very experimental, so read
# the HTML documentation before enabling this feature!
# Values: 1 = enable flap detection
#         0 = disable flap detection (default)

enable_flap_detection=1



# FLAP DETECTION THRESHOLDS FOR HOSTS AND SERVICES
# Read the HTML documentation on flap detection for
# an explanation of what this option does.  This option
# has no effect if flap detection is disabled.

low_service_flap_threshold=5.0
high_service_flap_threshold=20.0
low_host_flap_threshold=5.0
high_host_flap_threshold=20.0



# DATE FORMAT OPTION
# This option determines how short dates are displayed. Valid options
# include:
#	us		(MM-DD-YYYY HH:MM:SS)
#	euro    	(DD-MM-YYYY HH:MM:SS)
#	iso8601		(YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS)
#	strict-iso8601	(YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS)
#

date_format=us




# TIMEZONE OFFSET
# This option is used to override the default timezone that this
# instance of Nagios runs in.  If not specified, Nagios will use
# the system configured timezone.
#
# NOTE: In order to display the correct timezone in the CGIs, you
# will also need to alter the Apache directives for the CGI path 
# to include your timezone.  Example:
#
#   <Directory "/usr/local/nagios/sbin/">
#      SetEnv TZ "Australia/Brisbane"
#      ...
#   </Directory>

#use_timezone=US/Mountain
#use_timezone=Australia/Brisbane




# P1.PL FILE LOCATION
# This value determines where the p1.pl perl script (used by the
# embedded Perl interpreter) is located.  If you didn't compile
# Nagios with embedded Perl support, this option has no effect.

p1_file=/usr/local/nagios/bin/p1.pl



# EMBEDDED PERL INTERPRETER OPTION
# This option determines whether or not the embedded Perl interpreter
# will be enabled during runtime.  This option has no effect if Nagios
# has not been compiled with support for embedded Perl.
# Values: 0 = disable interpreter, 1 = enable interpreter

enable_embedded_perl=1



# EMBEDDED PERL USAGE OPTION
# This option determines whether or not Nagios will process Perl plugins
# and scripts with the embedded Perl interpreter if the plugins/scripts
# do not explicitly indicate whether or not it is okay to do so. Read
# the HTML documentation on the embedded Perl interpreter for more 
# information on how this option works.

use_embedded_perl_implicitly=1



# ILLEGAL OBJECT NAME CHARACTERS
# This option allows you to specify illegal characters that cannot
# be used in host names, service descriptions, or names of other
# object types.

illegal_object_name_chars=`~!$%^&*|'"<>?,()=



# ILLEGAL MACRO OUTPUT CHARACTERS
# This option allows you to specify illegal characters that are
# stripped from macros before being used in notifications, event
# handlers, etc.  This DOES NOT affect macros used in service or
# host check commands.
# The following macros are stripped of the characters you specify:
#	$HOSTOUTPUT$
#	$HOSTPERFDATA$
#	$HOSTACKAUTHOR$
#	$HOSTACKCOMMENT$
#	$SERVICEOUTPUT$
#	$SERVICEPERFDATA$
#	$SERVICEACKAUTHOR$
#	$SERVICEACKCOMMENT$

illegal_macro_output_chars=`~$&|'"<>



# REGULAR EXPRESSION MATCHING
# This option controls whether or not regular expression matching
# takes place in the object config files.  Regular expression
# matching is used to match host, hostgroup, service, and service
# group names/descriptions in some fields of various object types.
# Values: 1 = enable regexp matching, 0 = disable regexp matching

use_regexp_matching=0



# "TRUE" REGULAR EXPRESSION MATCHING
# This option controls whether or not "true" regular expression 
# matching takes place in the object config files.  This option
# only has an effect if regular expression matching is enabled
# (see above).  If this option is DISABLED, regular expression
# matching only occurs if a string contains wildcard characters
# (* and ?).  If the option is ENABLED, regexp matching occurs
# all the time (which can be annoying).
# Values: 1 = enable true matching, 0 = disable true matching

use_true_regexp_matching=0



# ADMINISTRATOR EMAIL/PAGER ADDRESSES
# The email and pager address of a global administrator (likely you).
# Nagios never uses these values itself, but you can access them by
# using the $ADMINEMAIL$ and $ADMINPAGER$ macros in your notification
# commands.

admin_email=nagios@localhost
admin_pager=pagenagios@localhost



# DAEMON CORE DUMP OPTION
# This option determines whether or not Nagios is allowed to create
# a core dump when it runs as a daemon.  Note that it is generally
# considered bad form to allow this, but it may be useful for
# debugging purposes.  Enabling this option doesn't guarantee that
# a core file will be produced, but that's just life...
# Values: 1 - Allow core dumps
#         0 - Do not allow core dumps (default)

daemon_dumps_core=0



# LARGE INSTALLATION TWEAKS OPTION
# This option determines whether or not Nagios will take some shortcuts
# which can save on memory and CPU usage in large Nagios installations.
# Read the documentation for more information on the benefits/tradeoffs
# of enabling this option.
# Values: 1 - Enabled tweaks
#         0 - Disable tweaks (default)

use_large_installation_tweaks=0



# ENABLE ENVIRONMENT MACROS
# This option determines whether or not Nagios will make all standard
# macros available as environment variables when host/service checks
# and system commands (event handlers, notifications, etc.) are
# executed.  Enabling this option can cause performance issues in 
# large installations, as it will consume a bit more memory and (more
# importantly) consume more CPU.
# Values: 1 - Enable environment variable macros (default)
#         0 - Disable environment variable macros

enable_environment_macros=1



# CHILD PROCESS MEMORY OPTION
# This option determines whether or not Nagios will free memory in
# child processes (processed used to execute system commands and host/
# service checks).  If you specify a value here, it will override
# program defaults.
# Value: 1 - Free memory in child processes
#        0 - Do not free memory in child processes

#free_child_process_memory=1



# CHILD PROCESS FORKING BEHAVIOR
# This option determines how Nagios will fork child processes
# (used to execute system commands and host/service checks).  Normally
# child processes are fork()ed twice, which provides a very high level
# of isolation from problems.  Fork()ing once is probably enough and will
# save a great deal on CPU usage (in large installs), so you might
# want to consider using this.  If you specify a value here, it will
# program defaults.
# Value: 1 - Child processes fork() twice
#        0 - Child processes fork() just once

#child_processes_fork_twice=1



# DEBUG LEVEL
# This option determines how much (if any) debugging information will
# be written to the debug file.  OR values together to log multiple
# types of information.
# Values: 
#          -1 = Everything
#          0 = Nothing
#	   1 = Functions
#          2 = Configuration
#          4 = Process information
#	   8 = Scheduled events
#          16 = Host/service checks
#          32 = Notifications
#          64 = Event broker
#          128 = External commands
#          256 = Commands
#          512 = Scheduled downtime
#          1024 = Comments
#          2048 = Macros

debug_level=0



# DEBUG VERBOSITY
# This option determines how verbose the debug log out will be.
# Values: 0 = Brief output
#         1 = More detailed
#         2 = Very detailed

debug_verbosity=1



# DEBUG FILE
# This option determines where Nagios should write debugging information.

debug_file=/usr/local/nagios/var/nagios.debug



# MAX DEBUG FILE SIZE
# This option determines the maximum size (in bytes) of the debug file.  If
# the file grows larger than this size, it will be renamed with a .old
# extension.  If a file already exists with a .old extension it will
# automatically be deleted.  This helps ensure your disk space usage doesn't
# get out of control when debugging Nagios.

max_debug_file_size=1000000

Hi,

Change your httpd.conf and set the path to Nagios as below.
Code:
Alias /nagios "/usr/local/nagios/share"

<Directory "/usr/local/nagios/share">
then restart apache and try again.

The Nagios configuration file in my opninion has nothing to do with not showing the webinterface.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Maybe silly question but do you have another instance of apache installed/running? Or any other webserver on the same server for that matter? Type following commands in a terminal:
Code:
ps -ef | grep http
which httpd
whereis httpd
and post output for all commands here.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

In a terminal change directory to:
Code:
cd /opt/lampp/
and try executing the following command:
Code:
lampp startapache
and see if it gives you any errors. If any post those here. If no errors then check if apache is running with:
Code:
ps -ef | grep http
Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Can you post what's in the /opt/lampp directory:
Code:
ls /opt/lampp
I don't know what's wrong with your installation at this point. I have XAMPP installed on a server too and all the things I pointed out are there by default. There should be a script called lampp that allows you to execute the commands you need to start/stop/restart/reload every part of XAMPP.

Kind regards,

Eric

cgi-bin/  htdocs/  lib/    logs/      RELEASENOTES  tmp/
According to the XAMPP user guide, to start apache, the full path would be :

Code:
/opt/lampp/lampp startapache
This is the link to the XAMPP user guide. There are few commands on how to use services in XAMPP.
