LoadAVG is free software that will change the way you manage your servers. It is easy to download and easy to install. It also features a built in update system to make sure you have the latest version.

You will need to install LoadAvg in a location where you can access it directly over your web browser. There are three ways to do this, one is inside your webroot, the other is as a subdomain, and for advanced users you can also install it as a Apache hardcoded link.

Inside a Domain

The fastest way to get LoadAvg up and running if you only run a single site is to install it inside your webroot, alongside your website. On a Plesk server, for www.mydomain.com, your install location would be at

/var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/loadavg/

You would access LoadAvg once installed via

http://www.mydomain.com/loadavg/

As a Subdomain

If you are on a cloud or dedicated server, and have a control panel such as Plesk or cPanel, you can also create a subdomain that you can access LoadAvg from such as loadavg.yourdomain.com. On a Plesk server, for the domain above, your install location would be at

/var/www/vhosts/loadavg.yourdomain.com/httpdocs/

You would access LoadAvg once installed via

http://loadavg.mydomain.com/

As a Apache link

If you are on a bare-bones LAMP server and want to access LoadAvg directly, you can install it in a system location and use Apache to create a direct access link for you. To do this, we suggest installing LoadAvg in

/usr/share/loadavg

Then create a conf file (on redhat based distros this would be at /etc/httpd/conf.d/) called loadavg.conf and add the following information:

You will then need to restart Apache so it can load the conf file in before moving ahead.

You would access LoadAvg once installed via

http://localhost/loadavg

NOTE: You will need to disable selinux for this to work until we have a workaround!

Downloading

Once you have chosen a installation location and method, you can now head over to our download guide and follow the instructions there on how to download LoadAvg.
