Dear Lawerence,
                               I have download monit-5.4.tar.gz  and is it ok for me to put in the /root directory and ./configure from there or should I take it to other place first? Thank you.

download it to your home dir unpack it and configure it and the default path for monit will be /usr/local/bin unless you have specified otherwise during installation.

If a new version is released as happened recently with 5.4 I just did the installation procedure again and installed over the top of the existing binary.

Sorry a bit new to all this. So say download it to usr/local and ./configure from there then that becomes the default location right? So for a newbie like me wat is best if next time I would like to upgrade it then that will be another problem am I right?

If you install from yum then the configuration is already set and it will install in its default location. The only difference will be you can use yum to remove or update the package at a later date.

To install monit in its simplest form is a case of ./configure then make then make install. However building from source gives you installation options that the yum install doesnt such as installing in a specific path.

if you run ./configure and it runs without any errors you can just make && make install. If you have any problems just put them on the mailing list and the friendly people here will try and assist you :)

Will this method still keep the dependency link between the files intact? What is the difference if using from EPEL using the yum method and getting from source and building it? Is this the link  take the source code distribution right? Any good links on how to exactly install I saw some link says ./configure then make and lastly make install?

why not just download the source and build it yourself as it will take no more than a few minutes and you will get the exact behavior and configuration that you want.

Dear All,
               I got a new centos 6.2 box. So I read about monit and some suggest to get it from EPEL repository. So if I also read about upstart it makes sure it will respawn if monit goes down. So will the EPEL version will have those features of support with upstart? Thank you.
