    Default installation on Fedora Core 7 doesn't work, please help?

    Hi all

    I'm trying to get Zimbra to work on Fedora Core 7, 32bit, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Upon installation, I didn't get any errors, but when I start Zimbra, it just doesn't work.

    [root@server ~]# tail -f /var/log/messages

    Yet, when I try and access Zimbra offers Open Source email server software and shared calendar for Linux and the Mac, I get an error:

    An error occurred while loading http://localhost:7071:
    Could not connect to host localhost (port 7071).
    What am I doing wrong?

    Is your /etc/hosts file correct? Do you have a local DNS server with correct A & MX records pointing to the Zimbra server?

    BTW, you access the Admin UI with https not http.

    You don't mention which version of Zimbra you've installed - which is it?

    ok, so apart from setting up the host in /etc/hosts, I'll need to setup a full DNS server as well?

    I've installed Zimbra 5.

    [root@server ~]# cat /etc/hosts
    hosts hosts.allow hosts.deny
    [root@server ~]# cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.

    Yes, as stated in the Quick Start Installation Guide and as you're behind NAT the DNS will have to be a local Split DNS setup.

    I have setup DNS, but still run into problems.
    DNS ERROR resolving MX for linuxserv.salesaffiliates.local
    It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
    Change domain name? [Yes]

    Looking @ my DNS setup, I have the following:

    [root@server ~]# more /var/named/chroot/var/named/salesaffiliates.local.db
    $TTL 1H
    @ SOA linuxserv root.linuxserv.salesaffiliates.local. ( 12
    3H
    1H
    1W
    1H )
    IN MX 10 linuxserv.salesaffiliates.local.
    linuxserv IN 1H A 192.168.1.5
    @ IN NS linuxserv.salesaffiliates.local.

    Any suggestions?

    I've decided to continue with the domian as is, and got this after saving the config:


    Setting up CA...done.
    Creating SSL certificate...done.
    Initializing ldap...sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
    sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
    sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
    sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
    Why does it do this?
    Where / how do I fix the problem?

    Thanx, it's working now.

    P.S. How / where can I (or someone else) add this as a OS specific note, probably to the Wiki?

    For Fedora Core installation, comment out the following line in /etc/inittab
    #Defaults requiretty
