Installing Zabbix on a CentOS/Scientific Linux/RedHat 6 system

By jbayer - Last updated: Monday, August 8, 2011 - Save & Share - 6 Comments

This is a followup to my previous post about installing Zabbix.  The previous script was configured to install Zabbix to a 5.5 or 5.6 system.  Now that 6 has been out for a while, I’ve updated the script to install Zabbix on a 6.0 or 6.1 system.

The previous instructions are still valid.  Just download this script onto the 6.0 system and run it.  When done, you will have Zabbix running nicely on the system.

The only thing the script needs is a working network connection.  It will work fine with a totally minimal install, it detects and installs everything that it needs.

The script has been renamed to differentiate it from the older script.

Awesome script! The only issue that I had was php-bcmath and php-mbstring not getting installed. I noticed that when I tried installing without your script. I just added the ius repo, removed all of the php packages, and installed php53u from there.

rpm -ihv ius-release-1.0-8.ius.el6.noarch.rpm

yum install php53u php53u-mbstring php53u-bcmath php53u-pdo php53u-mysql php53u-gd php53u-eaccelerator php53u-common php53u-cli

It seems to work so far. At least I am able to access the web frontend now. I also had to configure the date.timezone setting in the php.ini file. Thanks again! I wish that I had found your script before I spent 4+ hours trying to get the install worked out.

Sourceforge changed their directory paths.

I’ll be uploading a new version tomorrow, probably. I will update the entry when I do.
