Zabbix GUI can be temporarily disabled in order to prohibit access to the front-end. This can be useful for protection of Zabbix database from any changes initiated by users, thus protecting integrity of database.
Zabbix database can be stopped while Zabbix GUI is in the maintenance mode.
There are several goals of the maintenance mode:
In order to enable maintenance mode, file conf/maintenance.conf.php must be modified to uncomment the following lines:
// Maintenance mode define('ZBX_DENY_GUI_ACCESS',1); // IP range, who allowed to connect to FrontEnd $ZBX_GUI_ACCESS_IP_RANGE = array('127.0.0.1'); // MSG showed on Warning screen! $_REQUEST['warning_msg'] = 'Zabbix is under maintenance.';
|ZBX_DENY_GUI_ACCESS||Enable maintenance mode:
1 – maintenance mode is enabled, disabled otherwise
|ZBX_GUI_ACCESS_IP_RANGE||Connections from these IP addresses will be allowed with no maintenance mode.
