I have been installed "zabbix-1.6.4.tar.gz", make step by step as this link (referenced to http://nitishkumar.net/2010/01/03/za...for-corporate/)
I thought the version zabbix-1.4.5.tar.gz different zabbix-1.6.4.tar.gz at this install step, so i changed the path as follows
# vi /etc/init.d/zabbix_server ----> version 1.4.5
change BASEDIR=/opt/zabbix to BASEDIR=/usr/local/sbin
change FULLPATH=$BASEDIR/bin/$BINARY_NAME to FULLPATH=$BASEDIR/$BINARY_NAME
# vi /etc/init.d/zabbix_server -----> version 1.6.4
-------------------------------------------------------
RETVAL=0
#progdir="/usr/local/zabbix/bin/"
progdir="usr/local/bin"
prog="zabbix_server"
--------------------------------------------------------

And then i continue to do to step start service, i get the message error:
# service zabbix_server start
zabbix_server: unrecognized service

May i know how to debug this error ???
Please advice to me.
To Alli_yas: As you know my skill english not good so i only see short the rule in this forum. I'll try to improve...
Thanks a lot.

Smile Your zabbix issue

Mate. I guess you need to check the /etc/rc.d and find that zabbix_server and zabix_agentd is copies there or not. If not then copy to that folder and then chmod +x zabbix_*
