How to install and configure Nagios 4.3.4 on OpenSUSE leap 42.3

To install and configure Nagios 4.3.4 on OpenSUSE leap 42.3

Nagios is an open source monitoring tool, with Nagios, you can monitor your remote hosts and their services remotely in a single window. It shows warnings and indicates if something goes wrong and not in its usual way. It is really very simple to install and configure Nagios 4.3.4 on OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 and this tutorial covers the ground in the same process. 

 

Requirements 

  • Apache 
  • Php

Installing Nagios

First, make sure apache running on your machine by checking its status.

linuxhelp:~ # systemctl status apache2

And then, install development tools by making use of the following command.

After adding the repo, you need to update the newly added repository by making use of the following command.

You shall now install the required packages by running the following command.

Next, download the achieve format of Nagios with the help of wget command in the following manner. 

linuxhelp:~ # wget -O nagioscore.tar.gz https://github.com/NagiosEnterprises/nagioscore/archive/nagios-4.3.4.tar.gz

And then, extract the package by making use of the following command. 

linuxhelp:~ # tar -zxf nagioscore.tar.gz

 

Also, you need to move inside the extracted directory. 

linuxhelp:~ # cd nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4/

 

And run the configure script. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # ./configure --with-httpd-conf=/etc/apache2/vhosts.d

Web Interface Options:
 ------------------------
                 HTML URL:  http://localhost/nagios/
                  CGI URL:  http://localhost/nagios/cgi-bin/
 Traceroute (used by WAP):  /usr/sbin/traceroute

Review the options above for accuracy.  If they look okay,
type 'make all' to compile the main program and CGIs.

 

You should then run make all. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # make all
cd ./base && make
make[1]: Entering directory '/root/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4/base'

Also make sure to include pertinent information that could
help others help you.  This might include:
     - What version of Nagios you are using
     - What version of the plugins you are using
     - Relevant snippets from your config files
     - Relevant error messages from the Nagios log file
For more information on obtaining support for Nagios, visit:

Enjoy.

 

After that, create a user and group. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # /usr/sbin/useradd nagios
linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # /usr/sbin/usermod -a -G nagios nagios
linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # /usr/sbin/usermod -a -G nagios wwwrun

 

Run make install to install all the compiled set of configurations

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # make install
cd ./base && make install
make[1]: Entering directory '/root/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4/base'

make strip-post-install
make[2]: Entering directory '/root/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4/base'
/usr/bin/strip /usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios

 

Next, install init script. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # make install-init
/usr/bin/install -c -m 755 -d -o root -g root /etc/rc.d
/usr/bin/install -c -m 755 -o root -g root daemon-init /etc/rc.d/nagios
*** Init script installed ***

 

After installing init script, you need to enable Nagios service in the following manner. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # systemctl enable nagios.service
nagios.service is not a native service, redirecting to systemd-sysv-install
Executing /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable nagios

 

Once it is done, make sure you install command mode. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # make install-commandmode
/usr/bin/install -c -m 775 -o nagios -g nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/var/rw
chmod g+s /usr/local/nagios/var/rw
*** External command directory configured ***

 

Next, install the set of config files by making use of the following command. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # make install-config
/usr/bin/install -c -m 775 -o nagios -g nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/etc
/usr/bin/install -c -m 775 -o nagios -g nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects

*** Config files installed ***
Remember, these are *SAMPLE* config files.  You'll need to read
the documentation for more information on how to actually define
services, hosts, etc. to fit your particular needs.

 

And then, enable all the modules which are required such as rewrite, CGI, install PHP7 and enable it by running the following command. 

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # /usr/sbin/a2enmod rewrite
linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # /usr/sbin/a2enmod cgi

Next, install Nagios plugin 2.2.1 by  installing required packages for it.

And then, extract the package by making use of the following command. 

linuxhelp:~ # tar -zxf nagios-plugins.tar.gz

 

And then, run the following scrip.

Once it is done start your nagios and apache service.

linuxhelp:~/nagios-plugins-release-2.2.1 # systemctl restart nagios
linuxhelp:~/nagios-plugins-release-2.2.1 # systemctl restart apache2

 

Since we haven’t provided any – prefix location that to be installed for Nagios core 4.3.4 in configure script. By default it gets installed as /usr/local/nagios  location. 

linuxhelp:~ # cd /usr/local/nagios/
linuxhelp:/usr/local/nagios # ll

drwxrwxr-x  2 nagios nagios 4096 Apr  4 12:50 bin

drwxrwxr-x  5 nagios nagios 4096 Apr  4 13:26 var

 

Create credentials for Nagios admin.

linuxhelp:~/nagioscore-nagios-4.3.4 # htpasswd2 -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin
New password: 
Re-type new password: 
Adding password for user nagiosadmin

 

And then, restart your Nagios and Apache service.

linuxhelp:/usr/local/nagios # systemctl restart apache2
linuxhelp:/usr/local/nagios # systemctl restart nagios

 

Finally, see the pwd and move inside the etc directory to see the configuration files for Nagios. 

linuxhelp:/usr/local/nagios # pwd
/usr/local/nagios
linuxhelp:/usr/local/nagios # cd etc/
linuxhelp:/usr/local/nagios/etc # ll
