      The file to update depends on what services/hosts you want displayed. For example, if I want to monitor a particular service of a Windows host then I would put the event_handler in windows.cfg like this:

      define service{
      use generic-service
      hostgroup_name clientservers
      service_description Client Servers
      check_command check_nt!PROCSTATE!-d SHOWALL -l Process.exe
      event_handler update-nagex

      And if I want to display the status of the Host which runs this service, I would add the event_handler in my hosts.cfg:

      define host{
      use windows-server
      host_name NT-XX-01
      alias Server 2
      hostgroups windows-servers, clientservers
      event_handler update-nagex-host

    Everything done as described here but the browser returns a 500 error. Could you help to identify what I did wrong?
