How to Get Full Backup of Zabbix Server in Ubuntu Machine Step by Step Guide

Here’s a step-by-step guide to backup a Zabbix server on an Ubuntu machine:

  1. Stop the Zabbix server:

sudo systemctl stop zabbix-server

  1. Make a backup of the Zabbix database:

sudo mysqldump -u [user] -p [database_name] > zabbix_db_backup.sql

Replace [user] with the MySQL username and [database_name] with the name of the Zabbix database.

  1. Make a backup of the Zabbix configuration files and frontend files:

sudo tar czf zabbix_files_backup.tar.gz /etc/zabbix /usr/share/zabbix

4. Store the backups in a secure location:

sudo mv zabbix_db_backup.sql zabbix_files_backup.tar.gz [destination_folder]

Replace [destination_folder] with the path to the desired storage location.

  1. Start the Zabbix server:

sudo systemctl start zabbix-server

Now, you have a full backup of the Zabbix server. To restore the backup, you can follow the reverse process and use the mysql command to import the database backup and the tar command to extract the configuration files and frontend files.
