First of all, I should say this isn't the first installation of Zimbra I've completed - I've set up a couple of demos for clients before on versions 4.x and 5.x, and both of them worked fine (although the clients didn't bite). This is the first time I've looked at 6.x and I'm having problems getting the Admin Console up and running.
I did an initial install on a Centos 5.4 box. It had Apache installed on it, and the install script threw a 'port in use' message at me. So I quit out, shut down Apache and removed it from chkconfig, and then re-ran the install. I accepted all the defaults (ie not installing memcached and proxy).
After the install I was able to login to the webmail fine on http://zimbra.domain.com/. I tested the outbound and inbound email from the admin account and that worked.
I tried to login to the admin console on https://zimbra.domain.com:7071/ and was met with a Server not found.
I went to the command prompt and tried a 'zmcontrol status'. No problems there: everything is running.
I did a nmap localhost. Sure enough there was no port 7071 open, and no port 443 either. I couldn't login to email on https://zimbra.domain.com/ either
I searched around a bit and found the 'zmtlsctl' command. I ran 'zmtlsctl https' and restarted everything. Now I could login to email on https://zimbra.domain.com/. But still no Admin Console, and nmap still shows no port open on 7071.
So now I'm a bit stuck. I've looked in all the logs I can find in /var/log and /opt/zimbra/log. I've grepped over all the config files looking for 7071 and can't see anything obvious. I'm guessing its something to do with how apache and jetty work together, but I'm a bit lost there - last time I had to fiddle with this it was tomcat. Any ideas where I can look next?
