Install on SUSE via RPM


Currently we support SLES 12 and OpenSUSE with versions 42.2 and 42.3


OpenSUSE LEAP 15.0 hasn’t been tested yet, but should work as well.

Install dependencies

Setup Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is a dependency of Zammad and needs to be provided before installing Zammad. Please take a look at the following page: Set up Elasticsearch .

nginx on SLES12

$ sudo zypper addrepo "" "nginx"

Add Zammad RPM repo and install

$ sudo zypper install wget
$ sudo wget -O /etc/zypp/repos.d/zammad.repo
$ sudo zypper install zammad

Go to http://localhost and you’ll see:

  • “Welcome to Zammad!”, there you need to create your admin user and invite other agents.

Note: Make sure that the firewall is not blocking port 80 (configure firewall via “yast firewall” or stop it via “systemctl stop SuSEfirewall2”).

Change your webserver configuration (non localhost connections):

Add your fully qualified domain name or public IP to server name directive in your web server configuration and restart your web server. The installer will give you a hint where Zammad’s web server config file is located.



Please do not rename the webserver config file for nginx or apache. The update process will re create it, if it does not exist!

# /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/zammad.conf

server {
    listen 80;

    # replace 'localhost' with your fqdn if you want to use zammad from remote
    server_name localhost;

You can manage the Zammad services manually:


$ sudo systemctl status zammad
$ sudo systemctl stop zammad
$ sudo systemctl start zammad
$ sudo systemctl restart zammad

Only web application server

$ sudo systemctl status zammad-web
$ sudo systemctl stop zammad-web
$ sudo systemctl start zammad-web
$ sudo systemctl restart zammad-web

Only worker process

$ sudo systemctl status zammad-worker
$ sudo systemctl stop zammad-worker
$ sudo systemctl zammad-worker
$ sudo systemctl restart zammad-worker

Only websocket server

$ sudo systemctl status zammad-websocket
$ sudo systemctl stop zammad-websocket
$ sudo systemctl start zammad-websocket
$ sudo systemctl restart zammad-websocket
