Dear Forum.

I installed Zabbix 3.2 from source on CentOs 6.8. I am not in position to change the operation system to CentOs 7.

I am running zabbix-server, zabbix-agent. ( And will run zabbix-web. ) I heard 3.2 is not supported on CO6.

Till which point or till which task my installation will work until it breaks?

What is a weak place in the installation?
I am running Postgresql 9.4.

Thank you.

From the title, do you actually mean to compile 3.2 from source? I haven't see a complete tutorial about getting it as it is still pretty new.

Not sure what you are asking exactly. I assume you are using free version of Zabbix, you will need to compile Zabbix or php from source, with a solid Linux backgorund.

What is the reason you need to run Zabbix 3? Why not 2?

Thank you.
Yes, I compiled Zabbix  from source. So far it works and handles 2 servers on CentOs 6.8 and 6.7:
agents and server.

No errors yet reported. Can I continue going this way or there will be non-compatibility issues?

Why 3.2?  Because it seems recent and stable version. Why to go lower?

Compile from source works perfectly fine. But you need to be careful when you update packages or kernel that may break and require you to compile again.

 Because it seems recent and stable version. Why to go lower?

There is nothing wrong running 3.2 except it is on 6 which a bit contradict with your statement.

This question is not resolved.

There are two contradictory answers done to it:
one is "compatible" and one is "not compatible".  

Indeed for "non compatible":

That's correct. The highest zabbix server version for 6 is 2.2+.

For "compatible":
Mazdajai:
"There is nothing wrong running 3.2 except it is on 6 which a bit contradict with your statement."

I still need to know when the "non-compatible-with-Zabbix 3.2"  CentOs 6.8" will break. What does incompatibility means? I remember I saw this in number of places, in zabbix forum f.e. ...

Thank you.
