FC3 Base install doesnt work, need to update with yum
After several hours of trying to get Zimbra working on FC3 I finally got it to work fully. The issue I was having was that the admin panel was not running... nothing was running on port 7071. After digging through these forums and trying various things, i did a system update with yum. "yum update" i think it was.. it installed a newer kernel among another ~300 packages to update FC3 to current. Updating fixed all the problems I had. I would usually do an update for a system but it was something i overlooked to try and get zimbra working asap. After doing the update there were no noticable issues as of yet.
I think you should add the yum update to the install document.
as per your question.
Install FC3 from the cd, follow the install documents that zimbra provides for FC3 (link)
as for what type of install.. i did custom, deselected almost everything, except a few command line utilities. Also make sure you select 'fetchmail'
after the system boots up log in as root
make a new directory
'tar -zxvf zcs-3.0.M1_21.FC3.tgz /root/zcs'
this will download and extract zimbra for you into /root/zcs
run 'yum update' to update the system to the current version. This takes a little time and was almost 300 packages to download from a base FC3 install
reboot the server after the update and login as root
I basically used the default options and everything now works.
these instructions should work but i did them from memory. I'll try the install again tomrrow and update if needed.
