Overview of Installation Process
When you run the install script, the Zimbra install verifies that the correct prerequisite packages are available to be installed.
*
Zimbra Core installs the libraries, utilities, and monitoring tools.
*
Zimbra LDAP installs the OpenLDAP software, which provides open source LDAP directory services.
*
Zimbra Store installs the mailbox server, including Jetty, the servlet container for the Zimbra server.
*
Zimbra MTA installs the Postfix open source MTA, the Clam AntiVirus antivirus engine, the SpamAssassin junk mail filter, and the Amavisd-New content filter.
*
Zimbra SNMP installs the SNMP package for monitoring. This package is optional.
*
Zimbra Logger installs tools for syslog aggregation and reporting. If you do not install Logger the server statistics are not captures, and the server statistics section of the administration console does not display.
*
Zimbra Spell installs the Aspell open source spelling checker.
*
Zimbra Apache is installed automatically when Zimbra Spell is installed.
The Zimbra server configuration is menu driven. The installation menu shows you the default configuration values. The menu displays the logical host name and email domain name [mailhost.example.com] as configured on the computer. You can change any of the values. For single server installs, you must define the administrator’s password, which you use to log on to the administration console.
