    Question How to change installation path from abc.com/zimbra/... to abc.com/mypath/ ?

    Hello all

    I am implementing 3.0.0 GA on RHEL4 and would like to change the implementation from the default

    http://abc.com/zimbra/...

    to

    http://abc.com/mypath/...

    I have searched the forums and the documentation but could not find a way to do it.

    How and where do I make the changes?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jeremy

    The change would be in web.xml to start but I'll have to warn you on this one there may be hard coded references to /zimbra so it might not be a good idea.

    Unhappy How to change installation path from abc.com/zimbra/... to abc.com/mypath/ ?

    Hello Kevin

    Thanks for the reply.

    I suspected as much, looks like some judicious grep'ing and xargs work to do here.

    Ho hum, no choice as my prospect insists on this.

    If all goes well I'll try to turn the exercise into a HOWTO and post it back to the forum.

    All the best,

    Jeremy

    Yes if you do go through with this please post any you find. Ideally we'd like to get them all cleaned up.

    I'm curious as to _why_ you would want to do this?

    Cool How to change installation path from abc.com/zimbra/... to abc.com/mypath/ ?

    Hello Marc

    This is more a client's requirement than my own.

    I believe it is partially that they don't want to re-educate their users about the changes in URLs (yep, I know it should be transparent and irrelevent but as the adage goes "the customer is always right") and also to comply with their own internal policy that no application should dictate it's web path.

    They have encountered issues in the past when their employees see something new in a URL string or on the application UI then waste work time searching the net to find out more when they should be getting on with what they're paid for.

    Some folks are just plain weird when it comes down to it.

    You're not going to remove the zimbra logo, are you?
    One of my customer wanna replace the Zimbra logo with their own logo. Currently, Zimbra copyright notice and Zimbra logo are displayed on the login screen, splashscreen and admin console screen, can we replace/modify these screens in the way that Zimbra logo is replaced by customer's logo? Zimbra copyright notice is still visible on these new screens.

    There's another Zimbra logo displayed on the main UI. We intend to replace this logo by customer's logo and put the Zimbra Inside logo at the left-bottom corner, near the clock. Can we do this? Please advise.

    TIA,

    -g.
