    I was very interested in playing around with Zabbix after i read the guide on here, and i folowed it, but there seems to be a problem with apache, since when i navigate to where its supposed to be i get the Access forbidden! page and thats all.

    In which folder did you install Zabbix? Which distribution do you use?

    And you copied the web frontend to /home/zabbix/public_html? Did you add this to your apache configuration?
    Code:
    <Directory /home/*/public_html>
      AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit Indexes
      Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
      <Limit GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
      </Limit>
      <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
      </LimitExcept>
    </Directory>
    Did you restart Apache?
    If is does not work, copy the frontend to /var/www/html, that's the location of Mandriva's default web page.

    i did that, and it still doesnt work, even copying it to the /var/www/html folder makes that folder all of a sudden give a 403 forbidden error.

    What URL did you use?
    What exactly did you change in your Apache configuration?

    the url i used was the http://IPADDRESS/~zabbix
    then when i moved it into the default /var/www/html folder i just used teh ip address. the apache config file was in a slightly different location than specified, it was in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf instead of teh location /etc/apache/httpd.conf as outlined in the guide. i just added the text that was provided at the bottom of the file.

    Can you post the vhost configuration of the web site where you installed Zabbix? In what directory is Zabbix located?

    Zabbix Agent

    Hi Falko:

    Thanks for your reply. I have solved the problem of configuring zabbix server. Now I can access http://ipaddr/~zabbix. Now I want to install zabbix agent on the hosts to monitor. I have followed the steps from the zabbix document. But I am unable to start the zabbix agent. I have conigured zabbix_agent.conf file also. All my hosts are in redhat enterprise linux. Can you please tell me what is the problem, i possible can you post me sequence of steps to do for installing zabbix agent.

    Thank you.
