On GitHub you can find many interesting projects. There are also many things related to the Raspberry Pi. Raspcontrol is a control center that runs on your web server and informs you about the status of your Pi!

It is important to change the rights on this file to something like this:

Now you should be able to login and get all information about your Pi!
