One problem here (well, two), you need to include 
the other two "dir" directives.  Iif you use Imagedir 
and Icondir, you need to use htmldir and logdir as well.
You may have these named in the configs below...

There's no need for that silliness.  The files shouldn't 
update.  The resulting log or rrd files should.  Are the 
timestamps not current?
