Linux Question

Zabbix Server crash. No connection to mysql, no log files and no system process

our Zabbix Server is running (service zabbix-server start: Job is already running: zabbix-server) and our MySQL Database is running, too.

But the dashboard of the Zabbix Server gives the following information:

"Zabbix Server is not running".

Furthermore there is no Zabbix-server process when I check the processes in the server machine with "ps aux | grep zabbix".

Moreover there a no log files.

Last day I edited the zabbix-server.conf and changed the "MaxHousekeeperDelete" from "500" to "200".

Note: This command isnĀ“t working when in the init.d folder: "./zabbix-server -c /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf"

Can someone help?

King regards :-)

Zabbix Version: 3.2

SYSTEM: Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.19.0-69-generic x86_64)


Check if there is a .pid file for zabbix on the system and delete it. Then try to start the server again.

This should be a comment but don't have enough rep to do so.

EDIT: Can you ensure the nscd is running with ps aux| grep nscd? If not install it with sudo apt-get install nscd

EDIT2: Also can you please ensure that you have set START=yes in /ets/default/zabbix-server
