6.Create zabbix database and user on MySQL.
# mysql -u root
mysql> create database zabbix character set utf8;
mysql> grant all privileges on zabbix.* to zabbix@localhost identified by 'zabbix';
mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> exit

Import initial schema and data.
# cd /usr/share/doc/zabbix-server-mysql-2.2.1/create
# mysql -uroot zabbix < schema.sql
# mysql -uroot zabbix < images.sql
# mysql -uroot zabbix < data.sql
