Hi Oliver,

on a clean system, I just followed (my own) CFT instructions you also
used. I didn't encounter a problem. The only typo in the list is that
cp /usr/local/share/examples/icinga/apache22/icinga.conf-sample /usr/local/etc/apache2/Includes/icinga.conf
                                                                             should be apache22

Apart from this, there wasn't anything that didn't work. I used
"pkg install apache22 icinga icinga2" though and didn't need to copy the
.cfg-sample file as the icinga port does this by itself now.

Can you please check all file and directory locations you changed in
icinga/cgi.cfg? I guess the "status_file" line leads to a non-existing

Please also CC me on any questions you have regarding icinga[2] and
FreeBSD as I maintain both ports.
