This explains how to configure username and password during initial configuration:

How do I install nagios?

How can I change that using config files on server if I've lost the username and password?

I found the answer

sudo htpasswd -c /etc/nagios3/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin

Enter a strong password when prompted.

Note the -c replaces all existing passwords. To simply update an existing one (without affecting others):

sudo htpasswd /etc/nagios3/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin

Use this command:

htpasswd /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin

It will ask for new password.
