Installing Zimbra Software
 
Open an SSH session to the Zimbra server and follow the steps below.
1.
Log in as root to the Zimbra server and cd to the directory where the ZCS archive tar file is saved (cd /var/<tmp>). Type the following commands:
tar xzvf [zcsfullfilename.tgz], to unpack the file.
cd [zcsfullfilename] to change to the correct directory.
./install.sh to begin the installation.
The install.sh script reviews the installation software to verify that the Zimbra packages are available.
 
[root@mailhost tmp]# tar xzvf zcs.tgz
[root@mailhost tmp]# cd zcs-NETWORK-8.0.0_GA_3107.UBUNTU10_64.20101015012627
[root@mailhost tmp/zcs-NETWORK-8.0.0_GA_3107.UBUNTU10_64.20101015012627# ./install.sh
Screenshots in this guide are examples of the Zimbra installation script. The actual script may be different.
