    Default Zimbra & Webserver on same box

    Hello,

    I'm pretty new to Zimbra - but what I've seen so far looks great and a first installation will take place next weekend... Before I start it, I have a couple of questions where I'm not sure about the answer; I hope to get some in here.

    Since the installation is for private purpose and the server will run at home, I would like to have Zimbra and my webpage on the same machine. For my webpage I use a CMS (Typo3). Can I use MySQL and openLDAP from Zimbra for my Typo3 installation? What about apache? What I read so far, it is not possible to have apache running beside Zimbra. But for Typo3 I need it - or can Tomcat run as a 'normal' webserver as well? How can I handle it, that https://secure.mydomain.ch/webmail is handeled by Zimbra, but https://secure.mydomain.ch by Typo3? I have to use it like this, since my certificate for SSL is only for the domain secure.mydomain.ch. My webpage also has various subdomain (all only http, not https).

    I'm also running my own DNS Server - so DNS shouldn't cause any problems. Installing Zimbra and my webserver on different boxes is a overkill for my setup - only a handfull of users will be on Zimbra and the webserver. The server will have Debian stable as operatingsystem.

    What do you suggest?

    Thanks in advance for your input!
    Regards, m.a.g.

    I run Zimbra on the same server as my regular apache webserver with no problems. During the install you can define an alternate port for Zimbra to listen on. I run mine on 7070 in https mode and don't have any problems.

    That's a good idea using different ports.
    And it ain't no problem installing apache (incl. PHP) after installing Zimbra? Any do's and dont's when doing so?

    thanks,

    I had installed apache, PHP and mysql prior to installing Zimbra but I doubt there would be any problems...

    However, this may depend on what OS you are installing on... I'm using CentOS 4.3 which uses rpm. RPM sees apache etc as completely separate apps from Zimbra and does not include Zimbra in any dependencies or anything. The good folks at Zimbra have done a great job at making Zimbra easy to install and reasonably "free standing" that is not reliant on too many required packages to be installed on the server.

    I've been experimenting a lot over the past week, using the M2 beta release of Zimbra.

    First I started with a clean Fedora Core 5 system. I made sure httpd, mysql and postfix were not installed. I left sendmail installed, but not running, due to dependencies I didn't want to break.

    Zimbra has been working fine for a few days so this morning I installed mysql, httpd, php and squirrelmail. So far everyone seems to be playing together nicely.

    Default Postfix

    Good evening,

    i am also running LAMP & Zimbra on the same box. Furthermore Typo3 is installed for our CMS.

    QUESTION:
    =========
    How do i have to setup Typo3 or Zimbra, that Emails written in a browser (e.g. client contact form) are sent through zimbra's postfix ?

    I don't know, how to get this running

    Thanks a lot,

    /harry

    either point typo3 to localhost:25 using smtp, or if it has option of using /usr/lib/sendmail binary, point it to /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/sendmail (i think thats location off top of my head, might want to make sure)
