    Default [SOLVED] fresh install issues

    Hi, i'm new with zimbra.

    I installed zimbra on my server (RHEL 5_amd-64). everything went well. No error messages during install.
    But now the mailbox and the logger cannot start : mysql.server / logmysql.server are stopped.

    I tried different tips found on the wiki and here in this forum, but nothing working. Each time I start the mysql.server, i recieve no error message, but it won't start either...

    It's really strange. I have already tried to reinstalled everything severall time, always the same probleme. I'm sure that i missing something, but what?


    For information : the server is a fresh install of RHEL 5 with nothing else running, no firewall, no SELinux running. The serveur is registered on my DNS. (no MX record but it will be later).

    You need a valid DNS A & MX record pointing to the Zimbra server. If you're on a LAN you need to set-up a Split DNS, have you done that?

    Post the output of the following commands (run on the Zimbra server):
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomain.com mx
    dig yourdonain.com any
    host `hostname`  <-- type that exactly and use backticks not single quotes
    Regards

    I just don't understand, why DNS configuration issues can block mysql to start, but any way... thanks for helping.

    Your hosts file is incorrect, it should contain the following:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    Make that change, stop Zimbra and make sure there's no zimbra processes stil running then restart Zimbra. If that doesn't fix it then look in the log files for error messages.
    Regards

    Ok, i've made the chages, but it didn't fixed my problem, so I looked into the logs, and I found differents error message due to my wrong hosts file.
    So I reinstalled everything from scracth with the correct hosts file, and now everything is running just fine.

    Thanks for the help.
