Installing Zabbix Server 3.4 on Ubuntu 16.04

On the test I will install Zabbix Server 3.4 in Ubuntu Server 16.04.

First of all, we will install a repository with Zabbix 3.4 version for Ubuntu 16.04, as the old version is available in the official Ubuntu repository:

sudo wget http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/3.4/ubuntu/pool/main/z/zabbix-release/zabbix-release_3.4-1+xenial_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i zabbix-release_3.4-1+xenial_all.deb
sudo apt update

Now run the Zabbix Server and Zabbix Agent installation command:

sudo apt install zabbix-server-mysql zabbix-frontend-php zabbix-agent

Connect to MySQL:

mysql -uroot -p

Create the database and the user:

create database zabbix character set utf8 collate utf8_bin;
grant all privileges on zabbix.* to zabbix@localhost identified by 'PASSWORD';
quit;

I import the tables into the created database:

zcat /usr/share/doc/zabbix-server-mysql*/create.sql.gz | mysql -uzabbix -p zabbix

Open the configuration file in a text editor and where “DBPassword” is the password for the database:

sudo nano /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf

Open the configuration file in a text editor and where “DBPassword” write the password to the database:

systemctl restart zabbix-server zabbix-agent
systemctl enable zabbix-server zabbix-agent

To restart it is still possible so:

sudo service zabbix-server start

In php.ini, specify the date.timezone, for example Europe/Kiev, or uncomment it in /etc/zabbix/apache.conf if it is copied to the web server configuration:

sudo cp /etc/zabbix/apache.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/zabbix.conf

Or we will make the link where we need:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/zabbix/ /var/www/html/

Open the web interface at http://SERVER/zabbix/ and follow the prompts for further installation.
By default, the user name for logging in through the web interface is admin, the password is zabbix.
