I installed one ubuntu 8.04 and nagios 3.0.5
I follow the basic step by step for quick installation

Qt the step 5) Configure the Web Interface
I try the Install the Nagios web config file in the Apache conf.d directory.
make install-webconf

I get :
root@administrator-desktop:/home/administrator/nagios/nagios-3.0.5# make install-webconf
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 sample-config/httpd.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/nagios.conf
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file `/etc/httpd/conf.d/nagios.conf': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-webconf] Error 1

One idea ?

    Accepted Solution

    This line says it all :

    cannot create regular file `/etc/httpd/conf.d/nagios.conf': No such file or directory

    there is no directory

    So ...

    do you have apache installed ? (if not install it)

    is its config directory there ? (if not map a symbolic line to there or edit the make file to point to the right place)

    is apache installed with virtual hosts and not just stand alone (if not add it or recompile (depends on how you installed it))
