"Živeli" can be a little ambiguous when taken out of context.
It can mean both "to live" as in:
"in ŽIVELI so srečno in veselo do konca svojih dni", which means:
"and THEY ALL LIVED happily ever after"

or it can be an old fashioned greeting "živeli" that is not used anymore.

The two words differentiate themselves by pitch accent, which can not be inferred just from writing alone and must be guessed by context.
The first word has pitch accent on e: živEli
The second word has it's pitch accent on I: žIveli

"živeli" is no longer used as a greeting, instead "živijo" is used, which is just a simple casual greeting. In english you would say "hello" or "hi".
Same as "živeli" above it has pitch accent on I: žIvijo
