reading where and what?

i don't understand that. can you rephrase what you mean?

follow the docs. install icinga with idoutils as requirement, setup the 
chosen rdbms, install icinga-web.

if you are more experienced, get the shorter howtos on the wiki (but 
still have in mind that docs are more detailed).

sorry to say that, but my crystal ball doesn't show any possible guess 
what you might have read or not.

that's a rather common process in the m$/linux/apple world - you read 
about a software, you start reading the documentation, you try to get 
the software and follow the install instructions. if you then find out, 
that you did something wrong, you'll normally hit the internet, asking 
for help, providing accurate information about your problem. this includes

* operating system, version
* icinga version
* icinga web version
* urls and docs you've read
* configs, logs in case of errors

i can't see your real question. can you elaborate in more detail?

you are 1) not telling what you exactly did and 2) not providing any 
information what actually *could* be a problem.
