I already tried many tutorials over the internet trying to setup nagios and centreon to work together in centOS 6.4.

What I want is to run a script and it does everything, I should go to centreon web page and everything would be work fine.

So I develop this script, but I don't know what to answer to centreon questions, it asks for to update my pear and stuck there, in a infinite loop.

Now it shows something at http://localhost/centreon/install/pagesetup.php but everything is gray, and that's all. What am I missing here ?

I found the solution and separated it in five steps, so you could install it in a Virtual machine and don't have to upgrade or install the package every time, so you can run just the last step that you run before.

1. Adding the repository

#!/bin/bash

if [ ! -f rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm ]; then

  #i386
  wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm

  #x86_64
  #wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

  wget http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
  rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt

  #i386
  rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm

  #x86_64
  #rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

  yum update 
  yum upgrade -y
fi

Your problem was probably that SELinux was enabled. Try disabling it.
