Update Server Configuration

File Permissions

Change Config.nmis to tell NMIS to use the new file permission scheme


We recommend updating the authentication system from apache to htpasswd (so NMIS does authentication instead of Apache). 3 steps need to be taken to change this.

  1. Change Config.nmis to tell NMIS to use htpasswd 

  2. Backup old apache configGenerate new apache configuration (if you have customised yours edit it and remove the auth portions instead of generating a new one) 

  3. Create new config to replace old config and restart apache

Run this command to make all the DS's COUNTER instead of GAUGE
