Nagios Config File Error

I have a nagios server running on CentOS. Running perfectly except i am trying to implement check_http -H <someipaddress> -S -u <some url> -p <someport> and this works via command line, but when i put it into a define service {} method in the cfg file, it doesnt validate.

you could not use linux executables or scripts directly in a service definition.

first you have do define a "command" for nagios like that:

# 'check_http' command definition
define command{
    command_name    check_http
    command_line    $USER1$/check_http -I $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$

then you could use that "command"  (and not the executable/script) in your service definition.

can you post the section of the config where you define the service?
