    Default VPS issue

    Hi,
    I am trying to install Zimbra OSS on CentOS 5 x64 on a VPS at Burst.net

    I am running into issues like the Java crashing upon install.
    "Could not create the Java virtual machine"
    during the "Starting Servers"

    The VPS is a dual core 2000MHz, 2500Mb, 150Gb HDD
    I have no ability to create a swap file.

    Is there a way to get zimbra to install and work?

    Thanks

    Default can't change stuff on the vps

    it seems that you can't install zimbra on a vps using OpenVZ as the way it handles memory.
    zimbra is java intensive and java tries to use all available ram at startup and then scale back. the vps doesn't handle it and crashes java, leaving other things from working with memory errors.

    I believe.. XEN based VPS would be the way to go.. if you are looking for VPS specifically

    I have Zimbra running on a xen vps

    I have managed to get zimbra working in an openVZ vps - the problems i had were IP table related.
