Nagios: statusmap.cgi & Trends.cgi files missing


Hi All,

I've installed Nagios core 3.2 & Plugin 1.4.14 on RHEL5.4. Installation went smoothly & i managed to get the web interface up.
However, i have problems accessing to the MAPS & TRENDS tab on the web interface.

Errors shown are:

MAPS

The requested URL /nagios/cgi-bin/statusmap.cgi file was not found on this server.

Apache server 2.2.3 ( Red Hat ) at local host port 80


TRENDS

The requested URL /nagios/cgi-bin/trends.cgi file was not found on this server.

Apache server 2.2.3 ( Red Hat ) at local host port 80


Question:

1. Why were these files missing in the first place? Or should they be in by default? All other files like status.cgi, config.cgi, cmd.cgi etc are all in.

2. Where can i download them if i need to manually put it in there?

3. What other configurations do i need to implement besides editing the httpd.conf file ( /etc/httpd/conf )?

My httpd.conf file contents for ScriptAlias & Aliases configurations were as follows:

ScriptAlias /nagios/cgi-bin/ /usr/local/nagios/sbin/
<Directory "/usr/local/nagios/sbin/">
AllowOverride AuthConfig
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

Alias /nagios/ /usr/local/nagios/share/
<Directory "/usr/local/nagios/share">
Options None
AllowOverride AuthConfig
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

I would appreciate if any experts or experienced nagios users could enlighten me on this..

Thank you.

When I installed the 3.x version of Nagios it put the files in:
/usr/local/nagios/sbin/

Your config shows you're using that. Check there to see if the files exist in that directory:
trends.cgi
statusmap.cgi

You might also want to review the Nagios cgi.cfg (likely in /usr/local/nagios/etc" unless you put Nagios somewhere else) just to make sure it doesn't have any issues.

Hi jlightner,

The statusmap.cgi & trends.cgi files were not in the directory /usr/local/nagios/sbin.
However all other cgi files were there except for the above mentioned 2 files..
What could be the reason for the 2 missing files?

Could it be due to some problems during compilation of the core 3.2 installation?

You've suggested that i check the nagios.cfg file to ensure that there are "no issues".
What should i be looking out for in the file?

I would appreciate if you could give me some pointers on this.

Thank you.

Nagios: statusmap.cgi & Trends.cgi files missing

Hi Kirukan,

I've checked the source directory for nagios core installer, checked the source cgi directory & i could see statusmap.c file in there, and also trends.c file in there too. However, all other files has both the .c files & also the .cgi files there, except for statusmap, trends, and histogram files. ( statusmap.c, trends.c & histogram.c )

Is this due to a compilation error during installation?

What do you think?

Would i be able to manually copy those .c files over to the working cgi directory & do a compile again?

Pls advise..

Thank you.

No - the .c files are the source. You'd need to compile them to make the .cgi files.

Did you run steps similar to those shown in this Fedora quick start guide?
(configure, make, make install?). It is the make install that should have put the .cgi files in place. If it didn't you might want to retry to see what it missed.
