Hello Youssef,

if you already have a config that worked for an earlier version of Kamailio, 
then I would suggest to adapt it to 5.2. There were of course several changes, 
but normally you should be able to fix it with less effort than to write a 
completely new one.

If you look to the log you should see the lines were you get an error. You can 
try to google this errors, if you don't get a result, ask here on the list. 

Look into the "New in Kamailio 4.3/4.4/5.x.." documents in the wiki, to get an 
idea about the changes. 

About the other question, how to interact with Kamailio - there are several 
options. It depend on your environment and can't be easily answered generally.
