Web User Interface

The main Icinga 2 program should be configured first. Several features
are required for use with Icinga Web 2: either an "ido" database module
or "livestatus", and also "command". Consult Icinga documentation
about using "icinga2 feature enable" to do this, for configuration
details, database schema, etc.

The majority of Icinga Web 2 configuration is web-based and simple,
but a few things will need to be setup FIRST.

- Consult PHP package documentation to configure PHP and enable modules.

- If using PostgreSQL, install and enable php-pgsql and php-pdo_pgsql.

- If using php-fpm, configure it to run scripts as the _icingaweb2
user, and set the /tmp directory. You may add this to ${SYSCONFDIR}/php-fpm.conf:

   user = _icingaweb2
   group = _icingaweb2
   listen = ${PREFIX}/run/php-fpm-icingaweb2.sock
   listen.owner = www = www
   listen.mode = 0660
   pm = dynamic
   pm.max_children = 20
   pm.start_servers = 4
   pm.min_spare_servers = 2
   pm.max_spare_servers = 5
   chroot = /var/www
   env[TMP] = /icinga-web2/tmp
   env[TMPDIR] = /icinga-web2/tmp

(If instead of php-fpm you use Apache with mod_php, you will need to
add the userid running PHP scripts to the _icingaweb2 group).

- Configure your webserver to pass requests to icingaweb2's front
controller. An example for nginx (remember to "rcctl reload nginx"
after adding), using the above php-fpm section:

   location ~ ^/icingaweb2/index\.php(.*)$ {
       fastcgi_pass   unix:run/php-fpm-icingaweb2.sock;
       fastcgi_index index.php;
       include fastcgi_params;
       fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /icinga-web2/public/index.php;
       fastcgi_param ICINGAWEB_CONFIGDIR /etc/icingaweb2;
       fastcgi_param REMOTE_USER $remote_user;

   location ~ ^/icingaweb2(.+)? {
       alias /var/www/icinga-web2/public;
       index index.php;
       try_files $1 $uri $uri/ /icingaweb2/index.php$is_args$args;

Using icingacli, create the config directory and a token to allow setup:

   # ${PREFIX}/icinga-web2/bin/icingacli setup config directory --group _icingaweb2
   # ${PREFIX}/icinga-web2/bin/icingacli setup token create

Open the web interface http://localhost/icingaweb2/. Paste in the token
that was displayed on-screen in the above step and proceed to the web-based
part of the configuration.
