[omd-users] Use NginX instead of apache

Hi Imre,

The developers will know what they are doing, and they are updating core solutions as well in time ;-) I assume.

I don’t see checkmk goes out of date in near future, I hope…

You can always update the cores applications manually as well, I suggest to have a ‘spare’ machine to test it all out, before performing on a live system ☺

I was thinkin about upgrading because the applications in the background are very old. At this rate OMD will be "out of date" in no time. What I would change is:
Apache -> NginX
PHP 5.4 -> PHP 7.1
MariaDB -> MySQL 5.7

The rest is OK with my security awareness. What do you think about it? Or is it just a pain to update it?

Hi Imre,

With a clean and default install, you will use a self-signed certificate.
This one is located within /etc/ssl/certs/
(at least for Ubuntu)

You can try to replace it, for a Q&D solution. I can’t promise you this is all.
See the settings of apache : /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl.conf

Let us hear if you have more problems

I can’t help you with NginX I’m sorry.

Kind regards,

Hey Forum!

I'm using NginX ever since I'm working with webservers, but have not used apache yet. (Didn't have to). Therefore, the configurations for OMD looks very confusing for me. My main issue yet is to install an SSL certificate for my omd website. With NginX I would know where to start, but with apache and all the links everywhere, I'm getting very dizzy now. So I have mainly 2 questions.

1; Where the hell can I put my crt and key files and with what names so apache will recofnise it and use it.

2; How about using NginX? It is a way better webserver in terms of performance, plus it has other features like a built-in loadbalancer. I see no reason why wouldn't we try it. Can somebody tell me any special requirements that are required by OMD and Check_MKs websites that I should consider adding to an NginX config?

Thanks in advance!
