 An "​aptitude -t lenny-backports install xabbix-server-mysql zabbix-frontend-php zabbix-agent"​ will install all necessary packages for the server. Follow all the steps through Debconf to get the Database up and running and when you're done go to http://​serverip/​zabbix . If that works login with the username "​admin"​ and password "​zabbix"​. Needless to say: Change the password afterwards. An "​aptitude -t lenny-backports install xabbix-server-mysql zabbix-frontend-php zabbix-agent"​ will install all necessary packages for the server.

-If the Installation goes wrong this is usually because it can't connect to the DB and the error Message shown will probably tell you exactly that. If the erronous file shown is " /​usr/​share/​zabbix/​conf/​zabbix.conf.php"​ what probably happened is, that the DB Port in /​usr/​share/​zabbix/​conf/​zabbix.conf.php is wrong. If not compare it to /​etc/​zabbix/​dbconf. They should be identical, if not, thats the problem right there. ​+If the Installation goes wrong this is usually because it can't connect to the DB and the error Message shown will probably tell you exactly that.

 Also even when Zabbix does come up cleanly and you can login check the Zabbix Servers Logfile for MySQl Connection errors. If there are some make sure the DBPassword in /​etc/​zabbix/​zabbix_server.conf is set correctly. Also even when Zabbix does come up cleanly and you can login check the Zabbix Servers Logfile for MySQl Connection errors.
