    Can you remove the MySQL dependencies? I would like to use it with MariaDB but the package doesn’t allow me to install it without installing MySQL and removing MariaDB.

  2. dotdeb user

    on fresh debian wheezy install i get:

    aptitude install zabbix-server-mysql
    The following NEW packages will be installed:

    librtmp0{a} libsasl2-2{a} libsasl2-modules{a} libssh2-1{a} openssl{a} zabbix-server-mysql{b}
    The following packages are RECOMMENDED but will NOT be installed:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    zabbix-server-mysql : Depends: libmysqlclient16 (>= 5.1.21-1) which is a virtual package.
    Depends: libopenipmi0 but it is not going to be installed.
    Depends: libsnmp15 (>= 5.4.3~dfsg) but it is not going to be installed.
    Depends: ucf but it is not going to be installed.
    Depends: fping but it is not going to be installed.
    The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

    Keep the following packages at their current version:
    1) zabbix-server-mysql [Not Installed]

    I want to use libmysqlclient18 from 5.5 mysql is it possible at all?

  3. dotdeb user

    sorry was my mistake.

    i had squeeze instead of wheezy.

    any chance of removing mysql-server dependency from the zabbix?

    i think its not needed at all.

    zabbix supports remote mysql configuration.

    for example: php5-mysql is not needing mysql-server but its definitely need mysql server somewhere to connect to.

    @dotdeb user : mysql-server is just a recommandation, not a hard dependency. You can avoid the local MySQL installation by using an APT frontend such as aptitude or dselect to refine your packages selection.

  5. dotdeb user

    I don’t think so.

    Here is what aptitude gives me:

    aptitude install zabbix-server-mysql

    Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]

  6. Guillaume Plessis

    @dotdeb user : Ok. What about using the interactive version of aptitude, by just launching aptitude and by making a fine packages selection?

  7. dotdeb user

    what about zabbix-frontend-php?

    is it possible to run it on nginx+php5-fpm?

    i get this on apt-get install –no-install-recommends zabbix-frontend-php:

    The following NEW packages will be installed:
    apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils apache2.2-bin apache2.2-common libapache2-mod-php5 libaprutil1-dbd-sqlite3 libaprutil1-ldap php5 ttf-dejavu-core

    Description: network monitoring solution – PHP front-end
    Zabbix is a server/client network monitoring system with many features. It can be used for:

    * high level monitoring of IT services;
    * centralized monitoring of your servers and applications;
    * monitoring of SNMP-enabled devices;
    * performance monitoring (process load, network activity, disk activity, memory usage, OS parameters etc.);
    * data visualization.

    This package provides a web-browsable front-end to the Zabbix server, which can display graphs of the data collected from clients.

    Can you add nginx and php5-fpm here?

    Thanks a lot.

    btw, it seems to not possible to build from your source zabbix-php-frontend or zabbix-server-mysql.

    source package requires debhelper >= 9 whilst in squeeze it’s 8.0

  10. dotdeb user

    sure, i can do that, but i want actually 2.0.7 to use.

    dont you think that if you’re claiming support on squeeze, package should be compatible for building too?

    i solved this by just copying needed php files to the www docroot, the only disadvantage now is updating, but i will try later your advice.

    Please let me know how to customize the zabbix graph by changing the x axis and y axis

    Same here. We run by default nginx, php-fpm and mariadb on all our machines and it would be awesome if this package supported this type of setup.
