DOWNLOADING+INSTALLING  AUTO-INSTALLER SCRIPT & ZIMBRA BINARY

We have preparing all of Zimbra requirement, so now we can go with the final step : installing Zimbra. I make a small script to make the installation process more easier than standard installation.

  1. Go to /opt, download the auto installer script : zimbra-auto-11.2.1.tar.gz, extract it and then download the Zimbra binary installer for openSUSE 10.2 (the installer would run perfectly on openSUSE 10.3, 11.0, 11.1 and 11.2)
    [code language=’cpp’]
    cd /opt
    wget -c http://v2.vavai.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/zimbra-auto-11.2.1.tar.gz
    tar -zxvf zimbra-auto-11.2.1.tar.gz
    cd /opt/zimbra-auto
    wget -c http://h.yimg.com/lo/downloads/5.0.21_GA/zcs-5.0.21_GA_3150.openSUSE_10.2.20091211165044.tgz
    [/code]
  2. Run the auto install script and follow the wizard
    [code language=’cpp’]
    ./setup-en.sh
    [/code]
  3. Please note that the installation process need our response regarding the configuration. Below is some important step :
    • Asking about OS. Binary installer built for openSUSE 10.2 but we used it for openSUSE 11.2. Just answer “Y” while Zimbra asking about different platform
      `
    • Asking about DNS ERROR resolving MX. Just answer “Y” for change domain and then typing your domain name (in my case : vavai.net) instead of your hostname (mail.vavai.net)
      `
    • Zimbra Admin password. Zimbra will ask for Zimbra Admin password on the final confirmation. Just write your password but beware the password will be typing as plain text and doesn’t masking with different character
      `
  4. At the end of installation, just stop and then start the Zimbra service to make it usable and ready for testing
    `
  5. Zimbra web mail should be easy to access by using host name or IP (in my case :  http://mail.vavai.net or http://192.168.1.250) while the Zimbra Admin could be accessed with https protocol on port 7071 (https://mail.vavai.net:7071 or https://192.168.1.250:7071)
    `

    `
  6. Download my Zimbra installation log for your installation reference, here : Zimbra 5.0.21 installation process on openSUSE 11.2 32 bit.
