    Default Zimbra Permissions

    I currently have zimbra installed in /opt/zimbra. I think my version is 6.0.8.

    I'm not sure if I messed up the folder permissions, so I wanted to know what would be the command to quickly apply the appropriate permissions to that directory?

    Is that a script file that I run? Example: ./zmfixperms

    Should the zimbra service be stopped? Or it doesn't matter?

    Yes you have to stop zimbra before you do that. Refer this post.

    Wow. I had actually already ran it with Zimbra running. Do you think I could have done some damage? Or is it only a matter of running it again with the service stopped?

    Well it shouldn't be executed without stopping zimbra. Lets believe nothing happened, if anything did happen .. running zmfixperms again (after zimbra stopped) should fix it I guess. Fixing permissions has been discussed a lot in forum, so a search on it would have given you the answer.

    Just run it correctly, and start zimbra as zimbra user. After that check zmcontrol status to see everythings fine. Check logs to see details.

    Sounds like a plan! thanks.

    one more thing, where are the logs stored again? I completely forgot. I see a log and logger folder, but I'm not sure which file to open.

    mta, antivirus activities are logged into the main log file /var/log/zimbra.log. Other log files are mentioned in this wiki.
