    Hello Falko,
    I've seen your beautiful howto about the monitoring and decide to implement it on my server. However I'm face to an error when initiating a command to create the certificate of monit. Below you've the error message :
    marina:/var/certs# openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -config /etc/monit.cnf -out /var/certs/monit.pem -keyout /var/certs/monit.pem
    error on line -1 of /etc/monit.cnf
    18752:error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory:bss_file.c:104:fopen('/etc/monit.cnf','rb')
    18752:error:2006D080:BIO routines:BIO_new_file:no such file:bss_file.c:107:
    18752:error:0E064072:configuration file routines:CONF_load:no such file:conf_def.c:197:

    Thanks for your assistance

    /etc/monit.cnf doesn't exist. You must create it before you run the command.

    Why don't you just use /var/certs/monit.cnf as shown in the tutorial?

    vi /var/certs/monit.cnf
    # create RSA certs - Server
    RANDFILE = ./openssl.rnd
    [ req ]
    default_bits = 1024
    encrypt_key = yes
    distinguished_name = req_dn
    x509_extensions = cert_type
    [ req_dn ]
    countryName = Country Name (2 letter code)
    countryName_default = MO
    stateOrProvinceName             = State or Province Name (full name)
    stateOrProvinceName_default     = Monitoria
    localityName                    = Locality Name (eg, city)
    localityName_default            = Monittown
    organizationName                = Organization Name (eg, company)
    organizationName_default        = Monit Inc.
    organizationalUnitName          = Organizational Unit Name (eg, section)
    organizationalUnitName_default  = Dept. of Monitoring Technologies
    commonName                      = Common Name (FQDN of your server)
    commonName_default              =
    emailAddress                    = Email Address
    emailAddress_default            = [email protected]
    [ cert_type ]
    nsCertType = server
    openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -config ./monit.cnf -out /var/certs/monit.pem -keyout /var/certs/monit.pem
    openssl gendh 512 >> /var/certs/monit.pem
    openssl x509 -subject -dates -fingerprint -noout -in /var/certs/monit.pem
    chmod 700 /var/certs/monit.pem
