Hi There,

Just edit your file cgi.cfg and add the new user at the end of each of the following line (separate each user name by a coma):
Code:
authorized_for_system_information=nagiosadmin,newuser
authorized_for_configuration_information=nagiosadmin,newuser
authorized_for_system_commands=nagiosadmin,newuser
authorized_for_all_services=nagiosadmin,newuser
authorized_for_all_hosts=nagiosadmin,newuser
authorized_for_all_service_commands=nagiosadmin,newuser
authorized_for_all_host_commands=nagiosadmin,newuser
Then, set the password for that user, run:
Code:
htpasswd /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users newuser
and finally restart Apache:
Code:
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
I hope that help,
Angel
