Running MK-Multisite without installing check_mk

Before starting this you should have MK-Livestatus up and running!

Updated to 1.1.12p3!

  1. Download check-mk 1.1.12p3 from
  2. % cd /tmp
  3. % tar .../xzf check_mk-1.1.12p3.tar.gz
  4. % mkdir /usr/local/nagios/mk-multisite
    or wherever you want to put it. If you change this path you also have to change/fix the config files
  5. cd /usr/local/nagios/mk-multisite
  6. % tar xzf /tmp/check_mk-1.1.12p3/web.tar.gz
  7. % mkdir -p var/web
  8. % chown -R www-data:www-data var
    (on Suse use "wwwrun:www" as new owner)
  9. Download attached mk-multisite-etc.tar.gz
  10. % tar xzf .../mk-multisite-1.1.12-etc.tar.gz
  11. Install and enable "mod_python" in your Apache2, on Debian: apt-get install libapache2-mod-python && a2enmod python
  12. % ln -s /usr/local/nagios/mk-multisite/etc/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/mk-multisite.conf
  13. % ln -s /usr/local/nagios/mk-multisite/etc/ /usr/local/nagios/mk-multisite/htdocs/
  14. % /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
  15. Have fun :)

If it doesn't work have a look to etc/ (path names) and/or etc/

Feedback welcome ;-)
