Do you know how I can we reproduce this ?

From the information you gave, I can assume that it’s a fresh install, you updated /etc/timezone and /etc/php/…php.ini ?

What else ?

hello _dGs, exactaly i’ve modify the time zone with following command :

timedatectl set-timezone

also modify the file php.ini

after that i relaunch the ./validate.php after that the result mention that i have swedish mysql or something like that and i modify for utf 8, unfortunately i get it the following result :

[FAIL] Database: incorrect column (notifications/datetime)
[FAIL] Database: incorrect column (users/created_at)

Ok so I have downloaded the same ova and did as librenms:

  • sudo timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Paris
  • sudo vi /etc/php.ini (date.timezone = Europe/Paris)
  • sudo reboot now
  • ./validate.php

  • echo 'ALTER DATABASE librenms CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;' | mysql -p -u librenms librenms

First FAIL fixed.

  • mysql -u librenms librenms -p
  • copy/paste the 2 ALTER TABLE
MariaDB [librenms]> ALTER TABLE `notifications` CHANGE `datetime` `datetime` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT '1970-01-02 00:00:00' ;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.07 sec)

Before : SHOW FULL COLUMNS FROM users;
| created_at | timestamp | NULL | NO | | 1970-01-02 01:00:01 | | select,insert,update,references | |

AFTER : SHOW FULL COLUMNS FROM users;
| created_at | timestamp | NULL | NO | | 1970-01-02 00:00:01 | | select,insert,update,references | |

  • ./validate.php (everything OK except poller and discovery but that normal)
  • ./daily.sh
  • ./validate.php , still OK and updated

i’ve done what you gave me, thanks a lot it’s worked

I’m glad that it now works for you ! you welcome :slight_smile:
