Did you look at the "Getting Data In" documentation?

This is documented in great detail in that manual. You can use the web interface if there directory is on your indexer, you can use the client interface, or you can edit a configuration file.

To use the client interface you would run the add monitor command:
$SPLUNK_HOME/splunk add monitor /var/log/

can you paste the exact monitor stanza you are using and exactly where you put inputs.conf? Sometimes very slight changes can make it not work correctly.

I had put the csv file in a directory,when I choose the index for indexing I choose "main" but if I go to manager and index in the main there aren't any events,help to find out the reason why there aren't the events indexed.
the version is 5.0.2, in the input.conf:
[monitor:MyDir]
index=MyIndex
sourcetype=csv
where in "myDir" I wrote: c: ...
the index is : test1
I wrote in the sourcetype=csv
I saw in Manager the sofware created automatically the input data file, the path is correct and the files are 2, that's is correct.But If I check the number of events are 0.

Maybe using splunk web is the most easiest way.
