- Basic understanding of Linux and the Bash shell
- A Debian 10 Buster base install
- A static I.P. address on your Debian host
- You have sudo access or logged in as root
First thing first, let us make sure our install is up to date.
2) Download and Compile Source
3) Create Your Nagios User and Nagios Group
5) Configure Apache2
Now reload apache2
6) Create CGI User
7) Enable Start of Nagios Service on Boot and Start Nagios
8) Restart Apache2
If you navigate to your IP address and append /nagios into the URL you will see we have a working installation, but we are a long way from being done. Right now we are only monitoring our localhost and our setup has not been protected by any credentials. For this installation we will work from the I.P. address of 192.168.0.8 which is the one of this Nagios server.
You will be prompted for credentials which will be nagiosadmin and your set password.
