Nagios Plugin: check_joomla

check_joomla is a nagios's plugin to check joomla's version.

It is a work in progress and is tested against version 3.* of Joomla.

How it works

  • Copy the check_joomla script in nagios's plugin folder (eg: /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/).
  • Change its mode chmod +x check_joomla
  • Update nrpe config file
    • Find the command's section
    • Add the line command[check_joomla]=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_joomla -p=<path_to_joomla>
    • Change the <path_to_joomla> to fit your needs
  • Restart nrpe service (sudo service nagios-nrpe-server restart)
  • Add the command to your service definition:
 check_command                   check_nrpe!check_joomla


This plugin requires that:

  • you have installed a PHP interpreter
  • the shebang is correctly handled from your system
  • the SimpleXML extension is loaded and available
  • (probably) that SimpleXML is able to access the internet and retrieve the update instractions from joomla


Joomla update:
