Zabbix frontend shows “zabbix server is running” No

Zabbix Problem & Solution 

Zabbix Official Logo


This occurs when you confirm that the service is running, but the frontend still won’t show server is running.

Found that turning off SELinux with setenforce 0 would fix the problem, so it is clearly SELinux related. The problem is that by default, SELinux prevents apache/php from connecting to network ports, even on localhost. To fix this, you must allow the SELinux rule: httpd_can_network_connect.

Zabbix Solution

sudo setsebool httpd_can_network_connect on

sudo may not be necessary in your environment

sudo getsebool -a | grep httpd

look for httpd_can_network_connect –> on

sudo setenforce 1

This ensures that SELinux is running.

Do NOT just turn off SELinux. It is very effective at protecting your machine from attack.
