Thanks Leigh.

I changed my directory index to /cgi-bin/ so that my config looks like this:

    ServerAdmin Dayo at mycompany.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/smokeping/img
    ServerName smokeping.mydomain.com
    ErrorLog logs/smokeping.mydomain.com-error_log
    CustomLog logs/smokeping.mydomain.com-access_log common
    DirectoryIndex /cgi-bin/

But now when I request http://smokeping.mydomain.com , it returns my Apache
default page. What should be contained in my DocumentRoot directory ? I
mean, what should be the content of this directory ?
