Released on December 15, 2022

Changes | New installation | Upgrading


  • If the license limit was reached, load hosts up to the limit, log a warning and allow M/Monit to start (M/Monit used to terminate itself in such case).
  • Upgrade OpenSSL to 1.1.1s
  • Fix: The -t (syntax check) and -l (license info) command-line options were position dependent when combined with -c, -d, -p, -r, -w options.
  • Fix: MySQL authentication plugins support.
  • Added option to write size and time values in server.xml using various units instead of a fixed unit. Typically byte or seconds. E.g. instead of writing sessionTimeout="1800" as seconds you can now use minutes or hours instead, i.e. sessionTimeout="30 minutes" og sessionTimeout="0.5 hours"

New installation

  • Download the release for your OS.
  • Unpack the tar.gz file in a directory, any directory will do, but unpacking in /opt or /usr/local are good choices.
  • Go to the unpacked mmonit-3.7.13 directory
  • Run M/Monit using: ./bin/mmonit
  • Point your Browser to the host where mmonit is installed (or "localhost" if running on the same machine), for example: http://localhost:8080/ and login as user admin with password swordfish
  • If you want to set up M/Monit to use MySQL or PostgreSQL instead of the default SQLite database, follow these instructions in the wiki.
  • More documentation can be found inline in the application and in the manual (PDF).

Upgrading from previous M/Monit releases (2.3 or later)

The upgrade program can be used to automatically copy database and configuration files from the previous installation and update the database schema. On macOS upgrading is not needed as the installer will upgrade M/Monit in /usr/local/mmonit automatically.

The whole upgrade process should take less than a minute and you do not have to stop or change Monit on other machines during this process. Monit will simply pick up and start reporting to the new M/Monit 3.7.13 version.

  • Download the new 3.7.13 release for your OS.
  • Install M/Monit 3.7.13 in the same directory as previous release. For example:
  • Stop the previous M/Monit release:
 /usr/local/mmonit-3.7.0/bin/mmonit stop
  • Run the upgrade program and specify the path to the previous M/Monit release:
 /usr/local/mmonit-3.7.13/upgrade/upgrade -p /usr/local/mmonit-3.7.0
  • Start M/Monit 3.7.13:
  • Finally, please clear your browser cache before accessing M/Monit 3.7.13
