Recently work has been started on setting up an installer for the new Icinga-web UI. This is currently available via the git repository located at (git clone git:// to get a fresh branch) then simply follow the instructions in the text file /doc/install-fromscratch.txt this will talk you through the remainder of the process.

Listed below are the configure options…

./configure --help
`configure' configures this package to adapt to many kinds of systems.

Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...

To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.

 -h, --help              display this help and exit/
 --help=short        display options specific to this package
 --help=recursive    display the short help of all the included packages
 -V, --version           display version information and exit
 -q, --quiet, --silent   do not print `checking...' messages
 --cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
 -C, --config-cache      alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'
 -n, --no-create         do not create output files
 --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']

Installation directories:
 --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
 --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX

By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/icinga-web/bin', `/usr/local/icinga-web/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local/icinga-web' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

For better control, use the options below.

Fine tuning of the installation directories:
 --bindir=DIR            user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
 --sbindir=DIR           system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
 --libexecdir=DIR        program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
 --sysconfdir=DIR        read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
 --sharedstatedir=DIR    modifiable architecture-independent data [PREFIX/com]
 --localstatedir=DIR     modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
 --libdir=DIR            object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
 --includedir=DIR        C header files [PREFIX/include]
 --oldincludedir=DIR     C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
 --datarootdir=DIR       read-only arch.-independent data root [PREFIX/share]
 --datadir=DIR           read-only architecture-independent data [DATAROOTDIR]
 --infodir=DIR           info documentation [DATAROOTDIR/info]
 --localedir=DIR         locale-dependent data [DATAROOTDIR/locale]
 --mandir=DIR            man documentation [DATAROOTDIR/man]
 --docdir=DIR            documentation root [DATAROOTDIR/doc/PACKAGE]
 --htmldir=DIR           html documentation [DOCDIR]
 --dvidir=DIR            dvi documentation [DOCDIR]
 --pdfdir=DIR            pdf documentation [DOCDIR]
 --psdir=DIR             ps documentation [DOCDIR]

Optional Packages:
 --with-PACKAGE[=ARG]    use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
 --without-PACKAGE       do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
--with-web-user=<user> sets user name to run icinga
--with-web-group=<group> sets group name to run icinga
--with-bin-user=<user> sets user name for common webfiles
--with-bin-group=<group> sets group for common webfiles

Some influential environment variables:
 CC          C compiler command
 CFLAGS      C compiler flags
 LDFLAGS     linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
 nonstandard directory <lib dir>
 LIBS        libraries to pass to the linker, e.g. -l<library>
 CPPFLAGS    C/C++/Objective C preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if
 you have headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>

Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.

Report bugs to the package provider.

So at this stage the installer is just placing the files and setting the permissions for the Icinga-web UI it is not setting up Apache nor checking the necessary prerequisites this still needs to be done manually.

Please report any bug/issues to the Icinga development team at
