    Default zimbra on a shared server

    Hiya all,

    I am writing to find out if anyone has setup Zimbra on a server that is also hosting a web site. It looks like zimbra uses port 80 so I was wondering if anyone has actually run this email suite on a server that is also hosting a web site if they could point me in some direction on how this is done.

    I am guessing the easiest way would be to change the port zimbra runs on from port 80 to something else. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards
    ikhan42

    There's a search function on the bar above your above your post, that will get you all the information you need if you search the forums.

    Phoenix,

    Thanks for your sarcastic reply I really didnt know about the search function.

    Since we are talking about search functions then let me ask you this question.

    The following post Running Zimbra and Apache? the same question is asked that I ask, one of the zimbra employees talks about how the ports are mapped to port 443 and port 80 so all that needs to be done is a change made to the mapping of ports in ip tables and port 80 will be free and port 7070 and 7071 will be the ports used to access the mail server.

    Then I see yet another constructive reply from you advising that the answers are in the wiki and search the forum. Hmmmmm search works community doesnt.

    Thanks I will look through here or guess I will use one of the other free mail servers out there that provide constructive support.

    Default here is what I found for people interested

    Hi all,

    Since the information that is provided by some of the "Zimbra Employees" is of a sarcastic or unhelpful nature which shows to me they either have a wealth of knowledge they would prefer to keep to themselves or maybe what some psychologists would call an inferiority complex I will tell you guys the easiest way I found for setting ZImbra up on a different port.

    During the installation phase of Zimbra the following menu comes up

    Main menu

    1) Hostname: mail.example.com
    2) Ldap master host: mail.example.com
    3) Ldap port: 389
    4) Ldap password: set
    5) zimbra-ldap: Enabled
    6) zimbra-store: Enabled
    +Create Admin User: yes
    +Admin user to create: admin@mail.example.com
    ******* +Admin Password UNSET
    +Enable automated spam training: yes
    +Spam training user: spam.tukjrdnaco@mail.example.com
    +Non-spam(Ham) training user: ham.rg8fvq6cd4@mail.example.com
    +Global Documents Account: wiki@mail.example.com
    +SMTP host: mail.example.com
    +Web server HTTP port: 80
    +Web server HTTPS port: 443
    +Web server mode: http
    +Enable POP/IMAP proxy: no
    +IMAP server port: 143
    +IMAP server SSL port: 993
    +POP server port: 110
    +POP server SSL port: 995
    +Use spell check server: yes
    +Spell server URL: http://mail.example.com:7780/aspell.php

    7) zimbra-mta: Enabled
    8) zimbra-snmp: Enabled
    9) zimbra-logger: Enabled
    10) zimbra-spell: Enabled
    r) Start servers after configuration yes
    s) Save config to file
    x) Expand menu
    q) Quit

    one of the settings on this menu is http server port and https server port so all you need to do is hit option 6 in the menu that will bring up the following menu

    Store configuration

    1) Status: Enabled
    2) Create Admin User: yes
    3) Admin user to create: admin@mail.example.com
    ** 4) Admin Password UNSET
    5) Enable automated spam training: yes
    6) Spam training user: spam.tukjrdnaco@mail.example.com
    7) Non-spam(Ham) training user: ham.rg8fvq6cd4@mail.example.com
    8) Global Documents Account: wiki@mail.example.com
    9) SMTP host: mail.example.com
    10) Web server HTTP port: 80
    11) Web server HTTPS port: 443
    12) Web server mode: http
    13) Enable POP/IMAP proxy: no
    14) IMAP server port: 143
    15) IMAP server SSL port: 993
    16) POP server port: 110
    17) POP server SSL port: 995
    18) Use spell check server: yes
    19) Spell server URL: http://mail.example.com:7780/aspell.php

    Select, or 'r' for previous menu [r]

    then select option 10 and 11 respectively and put whatever port number you want to use for http and https.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Now I will go find a friendlier forum and product to use cause when the preverable really hits the fan I would like to know that the developers/employees would be there to help rather then hinder the process.

    Just for the record I dont know if the Zimbra Guys realise that some of the guys that are downloading the community edition are trialing it with the intention to purchase and if their experience on the forum is like mine then they will look elsewhere before spending their money. We want our bang for our bucks you know.

    It costs nothing to be civil, It costs customers to be sarcastic.

    Exclamation Sorry

    Hit the nail on the head in my opinion. Who knows this could have been a huge sale. But because the English language is hard to understand humor in writing one turns and looks for another product. Instead of enjoying the fruits of Zimbra, I'm sure the employee's comment wasn't made trying to upset you.

    You could run Zimbra on a web server with making the port changes that you pointed out. I'm sure you already know that traditionally mail servers tend to be resource hogs.

    wow. don't get your knickers in a twist because you've been too lazy to search the most basic of information. a simple search for port 80 would have thrown up these wiki links for instance:

    ZimbraApache - Zimbra :: Wiki
    Hosting other sites with Zimbra - Zimbra :: Wiki

    instead you throw a tantrum. run along now, bye bye.

    Where'd all the Christmas spirit go?

    Ikham42, thank you for completing your post by offering up the information you requested, that was good. I'm sorry you feel pushed to go to scalix, and I hope it works out for you. I'm sure there are posts on these forums from people moving from Scalix to Zimbra and happy about it, and I'm not naive enough to think the the reciprocal post wont be on the Scalix forums.

    Now, everybody get a nice glass of eggnog and continue the festivities

    Why don't you try to be a little more rude.

    I hope the Zimbra company doesn't condone this type of response.

    Although there is a search function, people come to our forums to help.

    If the reply is "Search the forums", perhaps it would be better off to not reply.

    Of course, I'm sure Phoenix didn't mean any ill to the poster and was genuinely encouraging the user to utilize the current wealth of information..perhaps it could have been handled better.
