Thanks, I will check everything again. I am not far from making it work. Surely a right problem on some directories gives me an Internal Server Error 500.
The thing is that I just want to monitor some servers, mainly Linux, and check when they are offline at least, so I can do something. I don't want a lot of functionalities, at least not now.
Thanks for your answer,
