4 Installation from packages

Zabbix SIA provides official RPM and DEB packages for:

Package files are available at repo.zabbix.com. Yum and apt repositories are also available on the server. A step-by-step tutorial for installing Zabbix from packages is provided in sub-pages of this section.

Note, that though some OS distributions (in particular, Debian-based distributions) provide their own Zabbix packages, these packages are not supported by Zabbix. Zabbix packages provided by 3rd parties can be out of date and may lack the latest features and bug fixes. It is recommended to use only official packages from repo.zabbix.com. If you have previously used unofficial Zabbix packages, follow this procedure to switch to the official packages:

  1. Always uninstall the old packages first.
  2. Check for residual files that may have been left after deinstallation.
  3. Install official packages following installation instructions provided by Zabbix.

Never do a direct update, as this may result in a broken installation.
