Big Brother network monitor with apache

Hi there,

I am tryin to get working a program called Big brother network monitoring on my suse 10.0 machine. This is basically a client server program with the server gathering information from the clients such as disk usage network connectivity etc and displaying them on a webpage on your webserver.

So i have installed the apache RPM an configured using YAST to point to the folder within the BB installation which will contain all the HTML files as they are published. I can view the test page after starting apache so i am confident my webserver is working correctly.

Does anyone have any experience using this program? I have finally managed to start and stop the BB servies correctly but i am certain i am missing a link between the apache web files and the BB ones. I have all machines using the client software configured correctly and inserted the IP addresses/hostnames into the bb-hosts files. But when i start the service and go to the localhost webpage it stays with this index.html page and doesnt seem to generate the other files it should.

Anyone who can offer any sort of help with this it would be greatly appreciated. I am not a linux beginner but would describe my skills as intermediate but this one has got me stumped!!!!
