Nagios and Fedora 3


I installed nagios-2.0-0.b2.1.fc3.test.rpm and nagios-plugins-1.4-2.1.fc3.rf.rpm on Fedora 3.
I have also installed fping because of dependency issues.

I added my configurations and ran a test on the config file .
As you can see there are no errors or warnings. So far so good.

[root@216 nagios]# nagios -v /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg

Nagios 2.0b2

# id -a apache

Apache has been added to nagios group. All the directories and files are owned by

However, I get the following error when I click on the cgi script on the left nav.


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.
3. Make sure you've compiled the main program and the CGIs to use the same object data storage options (i.e. default text file or template-based file).

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

Any insights appreciated.
