NAGIOS: Unable to Execute check_http

created two symlinks for openssl files per Nagios install document
>>#ln -s /lib/ /lib/
>>#ln -s /lib/ /lib/

and tried to test 'check_http' script :

MYCOMPUTER:/usr/lib # /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_http --help

and got this error:

/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_http: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I verified the link is there:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Nov 15 15:35 ->

Anyone understand this problem, please help me.

when i used nagios, it sometimes helped to do a "locate check_http" and then type in the full path in quotation marks

for instance

Check the permissions on the libs themselves, make sure the user has rights to them. Also, did you create the links before or after you compiled?
