    Default Installing Zimbra for first time, Getting Errors

    Hi All, I am attempting my first try to install Zimbra 4.5.7 on a Ubuntu6... After, going through the option to select the Zimbra Servers to install - I get this error message:
    Code:
    Checking required space for zimbra-core
    checking space for zimbra-store
    /opt/zimbra requires at least 5GB of space to install.
    0GB is not enough space to install.
    
    Installation cancelled.
    If I am not mistaken, I think Zimbra is trying to install on /opt directory. My /opt resides in my /root partition which was only 1G of space. My largest space on my HD is on /var. Is there a way I can get Zimbra to install to the /var partition.
    Also, I was wondering WHY /opt to install Zimbra and WHY not allow user choose where to install - Like /var.

    I do know I have enough disk space BUT not in my / partition where /opt is.
    Would appreciate anyone comments/suggestions.

    Well, you may want: Bug 12525 - move zcs data from /opt/zimbra/ to /var/opt/zimbra/ to conform to Filesystem Hierarchy Standard

    In the mean time, can you stick a symlink from /opt to /var/opt?

    I am trying to do the symlink and I don't think its working for me. Actually, I am not sure if I doing the right syntax. Which one would be right:

    ln -s /opt /var/opt or ln -s /var/opt /opt

    Sorry, new to linux.

    Also, can you and anyone confirm if doing the symlink should work.

    ln always is in order from existing to the link you want to go (ie, your second example). I have my /opt symlinked and it appears to work just fine.
