Hi,

I followed the instructions at this link which I found here on EE...http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/quickstart-fedora.html
Well after trying to start nagios it says that "No lock file found in /usr/local/nagios/var/nagios.lock
what does this mean and how do I resolve it. Just trying to get nagios up.
Thanks much

When you start nagios check out /var/log/messages and make sure it isn't crapping out.

/usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios -v /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg and read the entire output and make sure that you don't have any errors in the configuration files.

As that guide says, check selinux.

I turned SE Linux off and now I will try the -v for errors but when I try to start nagios using service nagios start, it gives me that lock error. Am I suppose to try to start it using ./   ?
