Change default screen in Nagios Core 4.4.5

(Last Updated On: March 25, 2020)

The main default screen in Nagios does not provide any useful host or service information. This can easily be changed.



Towards the top, look for the highlighted line:

// Allow specifying main window URL for permalinks, etc.
$url = 'main.php';

Change this to the page of your choice. CGI rendered pages can be used, be sure to qualify the path…

$url = 'cgi-bin/status.cgi?hostgroup=all&style=hostdetail';


$url = 'cgi-bin/tac.cgi';

…are two common choices.
