[icinga-users] Problems getting Icinga Web Working

I had exactly that error message and it turned out that my version of PCRE was too old. :ook at the "Utter Ramblings" repo. That will get you a newer version of PHP than is in Centos without having to fiddle around. If you prefer to build from source (like me) then I can make my SRPMS available to you (and everyone else).

Thanks for the response, Jannis.

I'm using the 1.0.3 release; I'll pull down the git master and see if that makes any difference.

The only error I'm seeing in the error_log is the following:

 PHP Warning:  preg_match() [<a href='function.preg-match'>function.preg-match</a>]: Compilation failed: unrecognized character after (? at offset 2 in /x/icinga-web/lib/agavi/src/util/AgaviDecimalFormatter.class.php on line 715, referer: http://d-scf-tadamec/icinga-web/

That's the message that led me to the postings about custom compilation of PHP.

Our standard build is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 with minimal packages installed in the production environment. I'm building my proof-of-concept on my development machine running CentOS 5.4 with a base set of packages to match, plus development tools and assorted other packages that won't be on the regular production machines.

Everything appears to install correctly, I can get the login page, but the stock "root/password" login refuses to authenticate. I've tried doing the "make icinga-reset-password" from the build directory several times, and even tried to insert a password manually using a salted SHA256 HMAC; nothing seems to work.
