Bug Description

I installed nagios3 in saucy, and as such it installed Apache2 along side it. When I tried viewing the status of a service in the web interface, it tried to download the .cgi files.

Upon inspection, this is because the apache2 mod cgi had not been enabled by the installer.

This is a regression compared to raring, where the cgi module is enabled.

However, nagios3 does not enable this module so this might be a change in default behaviour in apache2.4

OK - so the switch to the mpm prefork worker being a module has confused things.

I think the right solution is to enable the cgi module in nagios3; previously the mpm-prefork package enabled this on install.
