Server Installation

If you want to use the Zabbix server with MariaDB, install zabbix-server-mysqlAUR from the AUR. For PostgreSQL as database backend, you should use zabbix-serverAUR. You may edit the PKGBUILDs when you plan to use Nginx as web-server, since by default they have a apache and php-apache dependency.

Configuration

ln -s /usr/share/webapps/zabbix /var/www
mysql -u root -p -e "create database zabbix"
mysql -u root -p -e "grant all on zabbix.* to zabbix@localhost identified by 'test'"
gunzip /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/*.sql.gz
mysql -u zabbix -p zabbix < /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/schema.sql
mysql -u zabbix -p zabbix < /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/images.sql
mysql -u zabbix -p zabbix < /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/data.sql

To enable the and start server process, run:

systemctl enable zabbix-server
systemctl start zabbix-server

Agent (Client) Installation

Currently, the server package already includes zabbix-agentAUR, so you don't have to install this package on your monitoring server. However, for monitoring targets, the client part is more minimal, standalone and easy to deploy, just install zabbix-agentAUR.

Configuration

To enable and start the agent, run:

systemctl enable zabbix-agentd
systemctl start zabbix-agentd
