psql_shell> CREATE USER zabbix WITH PASSWORD 'zabbix';

psql_shell> CREATE DATABASE zabbix WITH ENCODING='UTF-8' OWNER zabbix;

psql_shell> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE zabbix to zabbix;

psql_shell> \c zabbix zabbix -- change to zabbix databsae

psql_shell> \q

zcat /usr/share/doc/zabbix-server-pgsql/create.sql.gz | psql -U zabbix zabbix


nano /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf

add lines

local    zabbix          zabbix                                md5
host     zabbix          zabbix        md5

nano /etc/php/7.0/fpm/php.ini find and modify the following items

memory_limit 128M
max_execution_time 300
post_max_size 16M
upload_max_filesize 2M
max_input_time 300
date.timezone YOUR_TIMEZONE

add this to the bottom always_populate_raw_post_data -1

/etc/init.d/php7.0-fpm restart you can use systemctl but mine didnt report anything

nano /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf

update DBName=zabbix DBUser=zabbix DBPassword=zabbix

/etc/init.d/zabbix-server restart

navigate to http://localhost/zabbix and follow the steps, it should generate /usr/share/zabbix/conf/zabbix.conf.php -> /etc/zabbix/web/zabbix.conf.php and redirect you to a login screen which the login is Admin/zabbix.
