[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#584696: nagios3: missing ExecCGI option in default apache2 configuration

Package: nagios3
Version: 3.2.1-1
Severity: normal

After upgrading Nagios3 from 3.2.0-5 to 3.2.1-1 I could not open the default
nagios page (http://<host>/nagios3) anymore, I always got a 403.

Turns out that during this upgrade the content served under that URL,
located in /usr/share/nagios3/htdocs, was changed from static (.html) to 
dynamic (.php). Since the /etc/nagios3/apache2.conf file does not include 
the ExecCGI option my Apache was returning 403. Adding the option fixes

Please note that I don't run libapache2-mod-php5 directly, but 
libapache2-mod-fcgid with php5-cgi. This probably makes the difference.
