    Default HELP! Looking to hire someone to install Zimbra

    Hello,

    Although I am a talented web designer and web application developer I need help installing Zimbra on a dedicated Linux server. I have lots of IT experience but I am not a Linux system administrator.

    If someone wants to help just let me know how much and how long. I can trade services or will take care of you via PayPal.

    Oh it is the Open Community Edition and will be going on Debian 5.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    I'll move this to the correct forum.

    I'd also suggest you rethink that decision, Debain and all the 32bit installations are deprecated in ZCS 7.0 and the only supported platforms will be 64bit systems in the major release after 7.0.

    It's really not that difficult to install Zimbra, if you want we can go through the install steps on the forums with you.
    Regards

    Sounds good. If you could walk me through it I would appreciate it and can help you with any of your questions pertaining to web design and web application development.

    Lets get started?

    OK, let's start with my comments about the fact that 32bit systems (and Debian) won't be supported after the next major release. How committed are you to installing on Debian, can you install on another operating system? Are you installing this on a public IP or behind a NAT router? What sort of specifications do you have for the hardware and how many users are you expecting to have on the server?
    Regards

    I'm installing 64 bit and I am locked into a contract with the dedicated hosting. I want to install on a public IP.

    CPUIntel E7500Core(s)
    2 x 2.93GHz
    RAM 4GB
    RAID Type RAID 1 Software
    Hard Drive(s)2x 500GB

    Starting with 6 users... maybe scale up to 20 and eventually 200

    OK, so your DNS will be on public DNS servers and I assume you'll want the firewall active? I also assume you have access to the DNS server config, who does your DNS hosting (do you have your domain name yet)? Does that also mean you will be installing Debian?

    That should be a reasonable spec server for your initial requirements, the intended 200 users may be a bit of a struggle depending on their activity the amount of RAM and the RAID level you have (RAID10 is always the preferred choice).

    Just two final points. I'm obviously in a different time zone (Western Europe) to you and I'll be going offline shortly and if there's any information (that I ask for) and you'd prefer not to post in the forums then either send it to me in a PM or just obfuscate it.
    Regards

    I have no idea about the DNS.... Debian is already installed. If you want root level access to get in the server let me know and I will give you the info. I really need to get this done ny Saturday morning.
