nagios intermittent problem on slackware with apache..?

Hi there.

I've installed nagios on my slackware server with apache, correctly configured htaccess etc.

However, when I go to "Host Detail" to check how my hosts defined in minimal.cfg are doing,
I will sometimes get the nice table where everything's green and sometimes, I will get
"It appears as though you do not have permission to view information for any of the hosts you requested...

If you believe this is an error, check the HTTP server authentication requirements for accessing this CGI
and check the authorization options in your CGI configuration file."

If I press refresh a few times, I will get the table again but just as many times, I'll get the error message.

If I had not correctly set everything up, the permissions on the files etc, I would not be able to see the
table with the host information at all, would I ?

Any ideas anyone please?

    It sounds like whatever authentication method is being used, is being rate limited.  This may also be a nagios specific issue.  What does your htaccess file look like, and if you remove it, does nagios still work and/or produce the error?
