Installing on a remote server

As MAP (Legacy) will not evolve anymore, we suggest you install Centreon MAP instead. MAP has significant advantages compared to MAP (Legacy) including:

  • Web editor: Create and edit your views directly from your web browser.
  • New server: Brand new server and data model providing better performance.
