-=== Repository installation ===+Packages are available with either MySQL/​PostgreSQL database and Apache/​Nginx webserver support.
-Install the repository configuration package. This package contains apt (software package manager) configuration files. ​+==== Notes on installation ====
-For Debian **8**, run:+See the [[https://​​download?​zabbix=5.0&​os_distribution=debian&​os_version=10_buster&​db=mysql|installation instructions]] per platform in the download page for:
-  ​# wget​zabbix/​3.4/​debian/​pool/​main/​z/​zabbix-release/​zabbix-release_3.4-1+jessie_all.deb +  ​* installing the repository 
-  ​# dpkg -i zabbix-release_3.4-1+jessie_all.deb +  * installing server/agent/frontend 
-  ​# apt-get update+  ​* creating initial database, importing initial data 
 +  * configuring database for Zabbix server 
 +  * configuring PHP for Zabbix frontend 
 +  * starting server/​agent processes 
 +  ​* configuring Zabbix frontend
-For Debian ​7, substitute '​jessie'​ with '​wheezy'​ in the commands.+Zabbix agent 2 (zabbix-agent2) is supported only on Debian ​9/10 and Ubuntu 18.04.
-For Ubuntu **16.04**, ​run:+If you want to run Zabbix agent as root, see [[https://​​documentation/​5.0/​manual/​appendix/​install/​run_agent_as_root|Running agent as root]].

-  # dpkg -i zabbix-release_3.4-1+xenial_all.deb +
-  # apt-get update+
-For Ubuntu 14.04, substitute '​xenial' ​with '​trusty'​ in the commands.+=== Importing data with Timescale DB ===
-=== Server/​proxy installation ===+With TimescaleDB,​ in addition to the import command for PostgreSQL, also run:
-To install server with MySQL:+  # zcat /​usr/​share/​doc/​zabbix-sql-scripts/​postgresql/​timescaledb.sql.gz | sudo -u zabbix psql zabbix
-  # apt-get install zabbix-server-mysql zabbix-frontend-php+<note warning>​TimescaleDB is supported with Zabbix ​server ​only.</​note>​
-To install proxy with MySQL:+=== PHP 7.2 ===
-  # apt-get install zabbix-proxy-mysql+Zabbix frontend requires PHP version **7.2 or newer** starting with Zabbix 5.0.
-Substitute '​mysql'​ in the commands ​with '​pgsql'​ if using PostgreSQL, or with '​sqlite'​ if using SQLite3 (proxy only).+See [[:​manual/​installation/​frontend/​frontend_on_debian|instructions]] for installing Zabbix frontend on distributions ​with PHP versions below 7.2.
-** Creating database **+=== SELinux configuration ===
-For Zabbix ​[[manual:concepts:​server|server]] and [[manual:​concepts:​proxy|proxy]] daemons a database is required. It is not needed to run Zabbix [[manual:​concepts:​agent|agent]]. +See [[:manual/​installation/​install_from_packages/​rhel_centos#​selinux_configuration|SELinux configuration]] for RHEL/CentOS.
-<note warning>​If Zabbix server and proxy are installed on the same hosttheir databases must be created with different names!</​note>​+After the frontend and SELinux configuration is donerestart the Apache web server:
-Create the database using the provided [[:​manual:​appendix:​install:​db_scripts|database creation scripts]] for MySQL/​PostgreSQL.+  # service apache2 restart

-For proxy, import initial schema:+[[:manual/​appendix/​install/​db_scripts|Create]] a separate database for Zabbix proxy.
-  ​# zcat /​usr/​share/​doc/​zabbix-proxy-mysql/create.sql.gz | mysql -uzabbix -p zabbix+Zabbix server and Zabbix proxy cannot use the same database. If they are installed on the same host, the proxy database must have a different name.
