Default Upgrading Nagios 4.0.8

Hi @ll,

OpenBSD6 comes with Nagios 4.0.8, which is running but giving me a lot of trouble with pnp4nagios. Apparently 4.0.8 contains a number of bugs which have been straightened out in 4.1.x and up. Has anybody here ever upgraded Nagios while retaining the (imo) bizarre location in the file system (Nagios typically installs to /usr/local, while OpenBSD places it in /var/www and various subdirectories therein, mixed with other files)?

I think I could simply download the most recent version of Nagios and install it into their default root, but I figure OpenBSD has changed the Nagios root for a reason and I'd rather stick with that.

I will guess that the reason for the /var deployment is to support the -chroot flavor. OpenBSD's chrooted applications use /var directories for their root.

The OpenBSD port of Nagios is highly complicated.

I'm not a Nagios user, and have not followed any of the Nagios discussions on the ports@ mailing list. I only know that pnp4nagios was a 2016 addition to the OpenBSD ports tree, and it has an assigned maintainer, while Nagios is maintained by the Project at large, via the ports@ mailing list.
