ive got it to a point where its installed and configured (real basic 
setup .. monitoring ping and ssh on one box for starters) and i can 
authenticate in through the web gui however whenever i try and select 
any of the options on the left hand side i get an error telling me that 
nagios isnt actually running (it is .. verified with ps)

when i run nagios from the command line with -v i get no warnings or 
errors on my configs. I do however get the following in the log:

[1137789408] Error: Could not re-connect to database server on host '' 
for status data.  I'll keep trying every 60 seconds...
[1137789408] Error: Could not connect to MySQL database '' on host '' 
using username '' and password '' for comment data!
[1137789408] Error: Could not connect to MySQL database '' on host '' 
using username '' and password '' for downtime data!

now, i am pretty sure I didnt tell it anywhere to look in a mysql 
database for anything... and i havent found this in the FAQ or the 
troubleshooting docs ...

Thoughts? Flames?
