    Default Dedicated Web Server

    Hello,

    Is there any way to split the Web Server from the Zimbra Mailbox Server?

    I'm planning to install Zimbra in an environment that will have a high web client use and a low or none IMAP use. I want to install a mailbox server machine and another dedicated server to the Web service (jetty, I guess).

    How can I achieve this?

    Thank you all in advance,
    Augusto

    Zimbra supports clustered installations. If your concern is load on your mailserver system and you want to split up the workload, this would be your best option.

    As for splitting off the web client, I imagine it's possible, but would probably take a heavy re-write job, and a long time to do it.

    Have a read through Multi-Server Installation as this has numerous ways to setup a scalable system.

    Yes, i have read that. But unfortunately maybe I will still need to split apart the web server and this document doesn't mention how to do it. It has also to do with a security design (DMZ based) that I have to follow.

    Yeah, that's my fear. Have anyone already done that?

    Perhaps you could explain your DMZ setup in a little more detail then ? Is the web frontend going in the DMZ, and then the mailstorage etc inside your private LAN ?

    Yes, that's exactly what I want. The frontend with only the webserver running on it in the DMZ.

    Could you just put an HTTP proxy in the DMZ?

    Good point dkarp, a reverse proxy would probably do the job just fine.

    That could be the solution for the DMZ problem. But I still fear the concurrence between the mailbox delivery service and the web front end.

    Thank you!
