 Install and Configure Nagios step-by-step
Author: arie01

Hello,

I'm new to this forum and new to FreeBSD. However, I did work a little with Nagios at my previous place of work. I now want to se up a new installation of FreeBSD and Nagios and I need a step-by-step guidance if possible. I already have a working installation of FreeBSD with one user created (nagios) and all the latest ports downloaded and extracted.

How do I continue from here?
What software need to be installed prior to the installation of Nagios?
How do Iet the Nagios website to load?

Thank you for all your help,
Arie

If you are using FreeBSD, the ports tree system will install all dependencies for you.

You do not have to create the nagios user yourself. I'm pretty sure the Nagios port will install that for you. Read up on the FreeBSD ports tree and go from there.

Hello Dan and thank you for such a fast reply.

Currently I have nothing on my BSD installation.
Nagios obviously needs Apache to work properly na dalso MySQL (if I'm not mistaken). I know I can install them from the ports. However, question about ports, what is the difference between make install and make install clean? Do I need to run both for each port I'm installing?

Thank you,
Arie

make install - installs the port

make clean - cleans up after the install

make install clean - does both

To see, do an ls after your make install, then do make clean, then do another ls.
