Multiple-Server Installation : Starting the Installation Process

Starting the Installation Process
For the latest Zimbra software download, go to www.zimbra.com. Save the Zimbra Collaboration Suite tar file to the computer from which you are installing the software.
For servers other than Mac servers, step 1 through step 4 are performed for each server to be installed.
For Mac servers, see Starting the Installation Process on the Mac Server.
1.
Log in as root to the Zimbra server and cd to the directory where the Zimbra Collaboration Suite archive file is saved (cd /var/<tmp>/var). Type the following commands.
tar xzvf [zcs.tgz] to unpack the file
cd [zcs filename] to change to the correct directory. The file name includes the release and build date.
./install.sh to begin the installation.
Note:  
Note: As the installation proceeds, press Enter to accept the defaults that are shown in brackets [ ] or enter the appropriate answer for your configuration.
The screen shots are examples of the Zimbra installation script.
 
[root@mailhost tmp]# cd zcs-NETWORK-6.0.0_XX_5469.RHEL4.4116
           zimbra-core...NOT FOUND
2.
The installation process checks to see if Sendmail, Postfix, and MySQL software are running. If any application is running, you are asked to disable it. The default is Yes to disable the applications. Disabling MySQL is optional, but highly recommended. Sendmail and Postfix must be disabled for the Zimbra Collaboration Suite to start correctly.
3.
The Zimbra software agreement is displayed and includes a link to the license terms for the Zimbra Collaboration Suite. Read the agreement and press Enter to continue.
 
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SOFTWARE. ZIMBRA, INC. ("ZIMBRA") WILL ONLY LICENSE THIS SOFTWARE TO YOU IF YOU FIRST ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. BY DOWNLOADING OR INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE, OR USING THE PRODUCT, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, THEN DO NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL OR USE THE PRODUCT.
4.
Next, the installer checks to see that the prerequisite software is installed. If NPTL, sudo, libidn, cURL, fetchmail, GMP or compat-libstdc++- are not installed, the install process quits. You must fix the problem and start the installation again.
Note: Before the Main menu is displayed, the installer checks to see if the hostname is resolvable via DNS and if there is an error asks you if would like to change the hostname. The domain name should have an MX record configured in DNS.
