Since 1.6b2 it is possible to install NagVis into the
local/ path of OMD
sites. Please note: This is only recommended for testing purposes
e.g. if you like to test brand new features of new NagVis versions which are not already
included in OMD. We do not recommend using this for productive installations except
you really know what you are doing.
In most cases this is done by doing
su - <sitename>
Get the current NagVis package. The latest release can be found at nagvis.org.
Unpack the archive to a temporary place (for example /tmp) and change to that directory
tar xvzf nagvis-1.8*.tar.gz /tmp cd /tmp/nagvis-1.8*
The OMD site installer is located in the root directory of the NagVis package. The installer has to be made executable before you can use it.
chmod +x omd_install.sh
Now you can execute the installer script.
Confirm the question with
y and wait for the script to complete. It should finish
You can remove the sources after installation.
rm -rf /tmp/nagvis-1.8*
Now you should be able to use the new version opening it in the browser with the url
