Nagiosadmin for nagios - installation issue

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

Any sugestions on other GUI type config tools for Nagios would be welcome as well or any other documentation (in english) for NagiosAdmin

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
