Zabbix 4.0 for Ubuntu 18.04 - Broken Marketplace install?

Thought I would give this Marketplace install a tryout, what attracted me was the LAMP + Email setup, with monitoring & SSL security, almost out of the box.

Missing things:

  • Certbot wasn’t installed, but easy enough to install
  • MariaDB instead of MySQL is installed, which is okay but access with Root is impossible
  • The Zabbix login screen didn’t appear with navigating to the allocated IP, instead just Apache splash
  • No instruction for configuring Postfix

Working items:

  • Apache
  • PHP 7.2.x

I’ll have to go back and do the broken things manually, from scratch, which is okay because I get to learn new things (:

Thank you for taking the time to look over the Zabbix image. I imagine it will be a popular one, quite a lot of potential. For any direct feedback, you may want to make sure to send an email to as they are the maintainers.

More information about the image can be obtained here:

Of course, the team at Zeromon are more than welcome to respond here as well :)
