It would help enormously if you showed your script and and example of what you want as a result.
Its not entirely clear from your description

fair enough, the img link below has two pictures, the one to the left is the script header, where the active sript is inside it.


now everytime i try to load it through centreon "the platform i use" it tells me the command line needs to be inside libexec.

now i am inside libexec , but i have no idea , how to create the file "whether with VI or CAT" and how to save it inside libexec.

Well, that certainly looks like nagios, but I'm (still) not clear what you are trying to achieve.
I always work at the cmd line (our servers don't have a gui), maybe the following will help
Code:
# nagios checking plugin cmds/tools eg check_mysql are in /usr/local/nagios/libexec

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 nagios nagios 129404 Jan 13 11:00 check_mysql
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 nagios nagios 122442 Jan 13 11:00 check_mysql_query

# for a local system check in eg /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects

local_hosts.cfg:        check_command       check_local_mysql!user!passwd
local_hosts.cfg:        check_command       check_local_mysql_query!'select 1'!user!passwd
The cfg file is plain text, so cp to copy vi to edit.

HTH

Seriously though, if you do it from the cli, its much simpler and easier for us to help you.

Thanks man, vi worked fine and found cat and tail also as an edit commands.

but now am having a new problem "no idea why this happens to me" anyways i logged into our centreon platform went to add host tab , added a test host , refreshed the page to save it, and poof got a blank page, now everytime i click the Hosts tab i get a blank page.


"please follow link"

with host tab not working i cant delete,edit,add any new hosts/servers and i have no idea what to do.

An idea crossed my find ,is it possible to delete the new host i made from root via ssh?

2 options:

1. if you're going to use the Centreon GUI, try their forums for a faster response http://forum.centreon.com/

2. learn the cli; most 'real' servers don't have a GUI, so if you intend to use this in a job one day, you might as well start learning now.

As above, we don't have GUI's at work, so I can't help with that; sorry.
