Upgrading Nagios

The only documentation on upgrading was in the UPGRADING file in the tarball. 
One day I will switch to using RPMs.
There is nothing on the nagios site about upgrading.

This is all the file says:


For Nagios 2.x Users:
If you're upgrading from an earlier version of Nagios 2.x, upgrading is
pretty simple.  Nothing has changed with the configuration files, so you
can simply recompile and install the new binaries and web interface and
you'll be good to go.

For Nagios 1.x Users:
If you're upgrading from Nagios 1.0, there will be a few modifications
that you'll need to make to your config files.  Read the "What's New"
section of the HTML documentation for more information.

This is what I ran:
# service nagios stop
# tar xzvf nagios-2.6.tar.gz
# cd nagios-2.6
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/nagios --with-cgiurl=/nagios/cgi-bin --with-htmurl=/nagios/ --with-nagios-user=nagios --with-nagios-group=nagios --with-command-group=nagcmd5
# make
# make install
(I did not have to run make install-init, make install-commandmode, make install-config since I already have those files set up from the initial installation of Nagios)
# service nagios start
