Hi

I have a Nagios server setup and have it configured to monitor a few Windows server and their services. However I am trying to get Nagiosadmin ( http://www.nagiosadmin.de/ ) installed to be able to add and edit the configuration, contacts and hosts.
During the install (I followed this guide as it is the only english one I could find --  http://www.voipphreak.ca/2008/06/19/monitoring-asterisk-with-snmp-nagios-and-nagios-administrator-using-ubuntu-lts-804-server/ ) I get an error when I run the following command:

# sudo ./symfony propel-insert-sql

Below is the output from the command (all other commands fail afterwards/well most of them):
>> schema    converting "/var/www/nagiosadmin/config/schema.yml" to XML
>> schema    putting /var/www/nagiosadmin/config/generated-schema.xml

Hi Rigged,

Your problem is coming from one of two options::

1.  The mysql extension for Php is not installed or can't be found. Usually there is a package called php-mysql or php4-mysql, etc.  This package needs to be installed (or if you're using source, needs to be built in).

2. If the mysql extension is built in, ensure that it is enabled in /etc/php.ini.  On my system, all extensiosn are loaded with the syntax:

extension_dir = "/usr/lib64/php/modules"

All modules that are installed are in this directory.


As to your question about other front end management interfaces for Nagios, I would highly suggest Groundwork Community Edition: http://www.groundworkopensource.com/community/.  We've had functioning Nagios boxes probing and alerting within 20 minutes using Groundwork.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the info. I didn't try the solution you recomended, but I did try grounfworks and it looks WAY better than the NagiosAdmin and I am in the process of scratchinbg the nagiosadmin and I am deploying the GroundWork Open Community.  :D Thanks alot, though I think you are on the right track with the php package for the nagios admin as other errors I got with other solutions I was trying was all pointing to sql and php errors. :D
