Hi to all!
This is a post only for explain the solution to a problem that I don’t found it any valid and updated information about. Please move this topic to another if you consider that here isn’t correct.

We are installing Xibo CMS 2.3.10 in a Ubuntu Server 20.04LTS with Xampp
In the process we need to activate, as a Xibo requirement, the ZeroMQ Extension, but this is not easy in Ubuntu, and for Xampp it’s very worse.

Then here is the step by step that i need to document for find the solution:
1.Install needed packages:
apt install -y net-tools smbclient unzip autoconf pkg-config libzmq3-dev libtool make build-essential
Note: net-tools, smbclient and unzip are optionals, but i used to configure through ssh.

2.Install Xampp (Version 8 and upper it’s not compatible with Xibo CMS at the moment)

3.Download and Unzip php-zqm-master

4.Cd to to folder php-zqm-master
./configure --with-php-configure=/opt/lampp/bin/php-config
make && make install

5.Copy version libstdc++ of Ubuntu to Xampp
find / -name “*”
cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /opt/lampp/lib
cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /opt/lampp/lib
Note: Where “X” is the version with de "find result"

6.Add to Xampp php.ini the extension
vim /opt/lampp/etc/php.ini

7.Restart Xampp
Note: If you see an MySQL Error stopping no worry, restart again.

8.Unzip Xibo CMS in /opt/lampp/htdocs

9.chmod 777 -R to xibo directory

  1. Apply the steps offered by Xibo Offical Documentation:

I hope it helps you!
