Linfo provides an alternative to the previously covered PhpSysInfo script. Install Linfo on a remote server, and you can quickly view essential info about the machine's hardware and software. This includes RAM and disk usage, hard disk and CPU temperatures, system load, running processes, and more.

Similar to phpSysInfo, Linfo is written in PHP, so deploying it is a matter of grabbing the latest release of the software from the project's website, unpacking the downloaded archive, and moving the resulting diretory to the root of the server. Once you've done that, open the file in a text editor and configure the available options. Point then your browser to (where127.0.0.1 is the actual IP address or domain name of your server), and you should see Linfo's interface in all its bare-bones glory. Linfo's default functionality can be extended using additional modules, and you can find a list of available extensions on the project's SourceForge page.
