    Question Can I use existing MySQL install?

    Hello,
    Is it possible to use an existing mysql installation instead of the built-in one? We already have MySQL 5.1.22 installed on our server and don't want another copy of the same thing running in parallel.

    If this is possible, how do I configure zimbra to use ours?

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    P.s. Same thing with apache. Can I use our apache install that is already servicing 15 domains?

    Welcome to the forums,

    It would be far better for you to run Zimbra on a separate virtual machine or box.

    Zimbra uses it's own customized instances of a serious collection of software packages - OpenLDAP, MySQL, Apache, Tomca (4.5 prior) Jetty(5.0), Postfix, Lucene, Verity, ClamAV, SpamAssassin, DSPAM (though off by default) AMaViS/Amavisd-new, Aspell, James/Sieve, Perdition (4.5 prior), NGINX(5.0), etc.

    VMware & VirtualBox are a common one's - Xen has some quirks but speed wise it's rather good - I've found Qemu & Parallels to be a little slower.

    But if you want the fun...

    There's a thread on MySQL around here somewhere...but it ain't a pretty process.
