I've added the nagios user to the group uucp (to use gnokii sms) and when I create a command like: id > /tmp/debug the result that I get is:
uid=30(nagios) gid=30(nagios) groups=30(nagios)

For a temporary fix I need to edit the systemd service (/etc/systemd/system/ and add these lines:


Resulting in:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/nagios /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg
ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID

Now It's getting the correct result:
uid=30(nagios) gid=30(nagios) groups=30(nagios),14(uucp)

Nagios service needs to be modified to allow reload without restarting nagios:

Description=Nagios Monitoring System

ExecStart=/usr/bin/nagios /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg
ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID

I don't think perl-dbi and perl-dbd-mysql are needed, package compiles an runs fine without them.

Hey, looks like it needs two more dependencies added: perl-dbi and perl-dbd-mysql

It's probably a good idea to have /usr/bin/nagios with 775 permissions. It now ends up with 774.

Running `nagios --verify-config {path}` as a normal user (not the nagios user or root) is sometimes useful.

updated to 3.4.1-4
- Apache configuration example moved to /etc/webapps/nagios/apache.example.conf

Backup your /etc/httpd/conf/extra/nagios.conf before upgrading (nagios installer should do the trick, but anyway...)
