    Thank you so much for this. I was able to get much father with your instructions than anything else. However, I have hit a snag. The webserver, db and ZM are all running but all I can get is a blank page when accessing localhost/zm. I have been searching for hours and cannot find the answer. Any ideas? Fresh build of Centos7

    Thank you for having posted a thoughful, and detailed yet simple, install guide.

    I’ve followed at least half a dozen others, each with its own missing piece causing ZM to fail and needing a complete system reinstall.

    Years ago I’d compile ZM with only a few tweaks. Seems that now no matter what the distribution (I’ve attempted setting up several Dockers, Deb/Ubu, Arch and puppies) the precompiled packs are quickly outdated or are missing info on dependencies.

    Similar issue what Greg reported ^^ ; however in my case there was an error due to not set timezone in php.ini. Although official doc says it’s no longer needed since ZM 1.34 – it was not the case with my 1.36 !! (note: yes, I had properly set date/time in my system).
