    Hi

    Welcome to the forums.

    The quick answer about Windows is no, I'm afraid. The sticking point is Postfix which is the MTA of Zimbra, it has not been (and, AFAIK, never will) been ported to Windows.

    There are some details about SugarCRM in the forums if you do a search, this post might help.
    Regards

    Thanx for letting me know about Windows.

    Another question though....

    I have downloaded the Zimbra suite and with it (according to the installation manual) Apache and MySQL is installed.

    Now, I already have apache and MySql on the server that supports our domains.
    When I install the Zimbra Suite, the MySQL and Apache instalations fall down and only the Zimbra is up.

    I know it sounds confusing, but the bottom line is:
    Can I install Zimbra onto the subdomain using the currently installed MySQL and Apache?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Well, Zimbra is meant to be installed on a dedicated server but it can be installed with Apache & MySQL already installed. The version of MySQL with Zimbra uses a non-standard port so that shouldn't be a problem, the only ports that matter are (probably) 80 & 443, when you do the install of Zimbra it should detect the port conflicts and you then have the opportunity to change them before commiting the install. You do need to make sure that your /etc/hosts file is correct and you have a FQDN server name rthat can be resolved by DNS.

    Merci beaucoup

    Would you have any details on how to set the ports before commiting the install?

    I'm a software developer and have been charged with setting Zimbra up, so my knowlege of server installations is not that good.

    Should the ports be changed to what the server is already using for all port conflict?
    It seems that the Zimbra closes all other connections to MySql so that our other programs cannot work.

    I want to integrate Zimbra with SugarCRM (Your post on that helped alot)
    And then I want to integrate Zimbra with Funambol. (Would you have any ideas on that)

    Thanx again

    Neil

    Zimbra shouldn't do anything to MySQL that you have running, I have a MySQL server running on my zimbra server without problems - installs & upgrades o zimbra work fine.

    If this is a new install, my recommendation would be to remove zimbra completely (use the './install.sh -u' switch, it will get rid of everything) and re-install. When you get to the section where it shows you the list of menu items, you change the ports in there - make the changes and commit the install.

    I'm afraid I have no idea about Funambol (other than what it is/does).
    Regards

    I have looked at the port conflicts, but they are all correctly set up.
    i.e. The port Zimbra wants for http is the port the server uses for http. (This is the same for all other ports)

    The port conflicts still don't explain why the zimbra installation would bring down MySQL on the server.

    Any ideas?

    Default more light shed

    To put the question in better light:
    We have a Fedora Core 4 server.
    On the server we have a whole bunch of domains.
    Under one of those domains I have a subdomain called zimbra.

    Now:
    How do I install Zimbra under this subdomain?

    Note: The server already has mySQL and a bunch of other stuff installed seeing as it hosts more then one domain.

    All help would be greatly appreciated

    Neil

    The easiest thing for the subdomain would be to set-up zimbra with the domain and add the subdomain as another 'domain' in the admin console. Why do you have it with a subdomain for mail?

    [edit]
    Sorry, the MySQL problem. I don't really know why your current MySQL would stop working, as I said, Zimbra uses a non-standard port for it's install of MySQL. The only thing that springs to mind is a resource problem. As I mentioned earlier, Zimbra should be installed on a dedicated server because of resource requirements - if you have a fairly active mail system then you might find zimbra is causing everything else to 'struggle'. Does this server meet/exceed the minimum specs for zimbra?

    It is in a sub domain because all testing/demos are run from the server. (Of all projects)

    That still doesnt tell me why it kills the mysql server when instalation is complete. Would you know of a more indepth installation guide?
    (Other then the one thats on the Zimbra site.)

    Also, when I go to the url after installation it says that the page cannot be displayed....

    Thanx

    Neil
