Webserver Configuration

Create htpasswd.users file with a username and password.

 # htpasswd -c /etc/icinga/htpasswd.users icingaadmin

Configure IDOUtils

 # cd /etc/icinga
 # mv idomod.cfg-sample idomod.cfg
 # mv ido2db.cfg-sample ido2db.cfg
 
 ! Database Setup
 
 (Mysql)
 $ mysql -u root -p
 > CREATE USER 'icinga' IDENTIFIED BY 'icinga';
 > CREATE DATABASE icinga;
 > GRANT USAGE ON icinga.* TO 'icinga'@'localhost' WITH MAX_QUERIES_PER_HOUR 0 MAX_CONNECTIONS_PER_HOUR 0 MAX_UPDATES_PER_HOUR 0;
 > GRANT SELECT , INSERT , UPDATE , DELETE, DROP, CREATE VIEW, INDEX
  ON icinga.* TO 'icinga'@'localhost';
 > FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
 > quit
 
 $ mysql -u root -p icinga < /usr/share/icinga/idoutils/db/mysql/mysql.sql

Configure WebServer

Configure PHP

Edit /etc/php.ini

 open_basedir = ...:/usr/share/icinga-web:/var/cache/icinga-web:/var/log/icinga
 extension=pdo_mysql.so

Confiure Database

Mysql

 # mysql -u root -p
 > CREATE USER 'icinga_web' IDENTIFIED BY 'icinga_web';
 > CREATE DATABASE icinga_web;
 > GRANT USAGE ON icinga_web.* TO 'icinga_web'@'localhost' WITH MAX_QUERIES_PER_HOUR 0 MAX_CONNECTIONS_PER_HOUR 0 MAX_UPDATES_PER_HOUR 0;
 > GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, ALTER, INDEX ON icinga_web.* TO 'icinga_web'@'localhost';
 > quit
  
 ! Import the schema.
 # mysql -u root -p icinga_web < /usr/share/icinga-web/etc/schema/mysql.sql

Finally

 ! Start IDOUtils
 # systemctl start ido2db
