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.

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

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


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:

# LoadAvg - Web based load monitoring solution
Alias /loadavg /usr/share/loadavg

<Directory /usr/share/loadavg/>
   <IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
     # Apache 2.4
     Require all granted
   <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>
     # Apache 2.2
     Order Deny,Allow
     Allow from all

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