Hi dear friends,
I've written a simple guide to install nagios core (latest stable release 3.4.1 and 4.x) which contain also a section to help to solve the most common problems such as:

- Forbidden you don't have permission to access /nagios/ on this server
- Error: Could not open command file '/var/nagios/rw/nagios.cmd' for update
- You don't receive any email notification and/or you are able to send email notification by command line

The URL for the guide is this: http://giuseppeturri.it/NAGIOS_INSTALLATION_GUIDE.pdf

I wait for your feedback hoping that this document may halp you.

Good afternoon! After a whole morning browsing the internet, I finally solved my issues with the error message "Error: Could not open command file '/usr/local/nagios/var/rw/nagios.cmd' for update!" thanks to your wonderful guide!
Much appreciated - keep up the good work!
