Xymon Community & All those who responded & helped,
Thank you a ton for all the help and replies. I finally got it going with all of the valuable help provided here and I doubt I would have been able to make it work without the help I got. So Thank you, once again. It's really appreciated. I would also like to thank the author of Xymon for such a great Open-Source product. From what I have seen so far, nothing comes close. Keep it up!
It's a really great community here and love to be part of it. Hopefully will be able to help once I get up to speed with Xymon.

Subject: [Xymon] Xymon Newbie - Installation Issues


Hello All,


I am a Linux and Xymon newbie to begin with so please go easy on me. Found Xymon in my search for a simple yet powerful network monitor and love what I have seen so far. However I cant seem
 to get it installed properly no matter what. So far I have tried all instances of Linux over at AWS and so far the best with the least amount of errors is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 - Even on that, the RRDTOOL-DEVEL is nowhere to be found and after spending
 half a day found the rpm at REPOFORGE and installed from there and the ./configure seemed happy with it. However no matter what I do, I could not find C-ARES-DEVEL to install and the RPM I found gave constant errors.


Anyhow, my question is what to do with the C-ARES error or the ARES.H errors on configure. Let them be or how can I install them properly? Also after the installation how do I configure APACHE
 as on other distros I could never get the XYMON page to come up because of a different www folder and each distro has its own issues.


Does anybody know of a complete guide or tutorial for newbies using which I can get Xymon to work? I have followed almost 8 to 10 different Xymon articles for different distros and could
 not get any to work because of the versions difference and other issues.


Please Help!
