You can edit those files using mc or vim

vim /usr/share/ocsinventory-reports/ocsreports/dbconfig.inc.php




    vim /etc/apache2/conf-available/z-ocsinventory-server.conf



        In <Location /ocsplugins> Comment lines :

        Require local

        SetHandler perl-script

****For lazy people or new on Linux I suggest installing mc instead of vim for editing files, it is also good file manager

sudo apt-get install mc 

Change Options>Config>UseInternalEditor>save 

sudo mc (find file and use F4 for edit, F2 for save file) }

Connecting Agents

Agents must be installed with version < or = OCSserver version, for example for XAMPP on Windows OCSserver2.2 must use Agent

For presented in this Tutorial Linux OCSserver 2.5 must use Agent highest aviable at the moment) or below.

Installation of Agents on windows I use default settings, just uncheck field Validate certificates, Of course  if choose it to be checked must generate certificate on OCSserwer and place it to a Agent config Folder (on windows 10 it is C:\ProgramData\OCS Inventory NG)
