Hi Paul,

I saw that thread and I did go to the config file to make sure...

XYMONSERVERROOT="/home/xymon"                   # Where Xymon is installed
XYMONSERVERLOGS="/var/log/xymon"                        # Directory for server logs. The xymon user must have write-access here.
XYMONCLIENTHOME="/home/xymon/client"            # XYMONHOME directory for the client

XYMONSERVERHOSTNAME="lsypf01a.in.domain"        # The hostname of your server
XYMONSERVERIP=""                     # The IP-address of your server. Use the real one, not .
XYMONSERVEROS="linux"                   # The operating system of your server. linux,freebsd,solaris,hpux,aix,osf

XYMONSERVERWWWNAME="lsypf01a.in.domain"         # The name used for this hosts' webserver
XYMONSERVERWWWURL="/xymon"              # The top URL for the Xymon webpages
XYMONSERVERCGIURL="/xymon-cgi"          # The URL for the Xymon CGI scripts.
XYMONSERVERSECURECGIURL="/xymon-seccgi" # The URL for the secured Xymon CGI scripts.

# XYMONNETWORK="foo"                            # The network location, makes xymonnet test only hosts with NET:foo
                                                # You only need to set this if you have multiple network test servers with
                                                # a shared hosts.cfg file.

# Make sure the path includes the directories where you have fping, mail and (optionally) ntpdate installed,
# as well as the XYMONHOME/bin directory where all of the Xymon programs reside.
SHELL="/bin/sh"                                 # Shell to use when forking programs

# Some systems need extra settings e.g. to locate run-time libraries.
# You can add these extra settings here:

# Default settings for "delayred" and "delayyellow" parameters in hosts.cfg
DELAYRED=""                     # Format: status:delay[,status:delay - e.g. "cpu:15,disk:30"
DELAYYELLOW=""                  # Format: status:delay[,status:delay - e.g. "cpu:15,disk:30"

##### Normally you do not need to modify anything below this point #####

# General settings
XYMONDPORT="1984"               # Portnumber where xymond listens
XYMSRV=""            # IP of a single Xymon server
XYMSERVERS=""                   # IP of multiple Xymon servers. If used, XYMSRV must be
FQDN="TRUE"                     # Use fully-qualified hostnames internally. Keep it TRUE unless you know better.

I restarted xymon first and then apache... still no luck.

[xymon at lsypf01a ~]$ ./server/xymon.sh restart
Xymon stopped
Xymon started
[root at lsypf01a etc]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd: [  OK  ]
Starting httpd: [  OK  ] is served, but not

We just had this one.

You see that xymon is listening on You need to change you XYMONSERVERIP environment in xymonserver.cfg to the IP address of the server.  Also set XYMONSERVERHOSTNAME to the hostname and XZYMSRV to the ip address as well. Then restart xymon.

I'm assuming you did restart apache after you put the xymon-apache.conf into /etc/httpd/conf.d, right?

Hi Everyone,

I'm very very new to XYMON, as a matter of fact, I just installed it 15 minutes ago. I thought I was cruising along quite nicely until I tested it. This is what I received:
Not Found
The requested URL /xymon was not found on this server.
Apache/2.2.15 (Red Hat) Server at Port 80

Xymon is running, that I can confirm:

[xymon at lsypf01a ~]$ ./server/xymon.sh status
Xymon (xymonlaunch) running with PID 4826
[xymon at lsypf01a ~]$

Here is my xymon-apache.conf, I made changes from what I've read in the older subscription messages:

Alias /xymon/  "/home/xymon/server/www/"
<Directory "/home/xymon/server/www">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes MultiViews
    Require all granted

ScriptAlias /xymon-cgi/ "/home/xymon/cgi-bin/"
<Directory "/home/xymon/cgi-bin">
    AllowOverride None
    Options ExecCGI Includes
    Require all granted

ScriptAlias /xymon-seccgi/ "/home/xymon/cgi-secure/"
<Directory "/home/xymon/cgi-secure">
    AllowOverride None
    Options ExecCGI Includes
    Require all granted

Various logs in /var/log/xymon:
