  1. Good video was very useful, but I have a question

    I followed your tutorial and I can enter the frontend from CentOS, but when I try to login from another computer on the network I can not login. Apparently reviewing the problem is apache (httpd),
    How could you solve that problem?

    In the browser the following appears:
    Can not access this site
    can not access http://ip-centos/zabbix/

  2. Great tutorial put in my case for zabbix to work I also hat to edit the /etc/php.ini, uncomment the data.timezone and set it to Europe/Bucharest (my timezone). Before doing this my zabbix instalation did not start telling me that it failed on data and timezone. Tanks for the video.

  3. Really good video.

    When i log in web interfaces on zabbix i receive "Zabbix server is not running: … "

  6. Hi,

    Thanks for the clear explanation. It would be great, if you could record the screen with bigger font size for putty. Its very difficult to read/follow the commands

  7. nice video keep up the work .. waiting for next one .. .
    if you could explain the use of zabbix with openstack infrastructure , how to install zabbix agent on openstack nodes i.e controller, compute, neutron and how to monitor them, that would be great
