    Default Are Zimbra v6.0.6 compatible with Fedora 13?

    Hi all,
    I'm new in Zimbra, and I wondered that does Zimbra 6.0.6 operate perfectly on Fedora 13 or Ubuntu 10.04?
    P/s: I'm using Fedora 13!
    Thanks for your patience to read this thread

    There are no official Zimbra releases for Fedora 13 or Ubuntu 10.04 (yet). Fedora 11 is the "newest" Fedora release for which you will find any Zimbra downloads for. Others may disagree, but in general I would not recommend running Zimbra on any Fedora release. If you want to stick with a Red Hat-like OS I would suggest you have a look at CentOS (free equivalent of RHEL). The Zimbra downloads for RHEL work perfectly under CentOS.

    Yes, I'd agree with those points. CentOS is stable, reliable and gives no surprises when used for a mail server platform.

    Yeah, thanks a lot! It seems a lot of people use CentOS instead of Fedora.
    I don't know why? Both of them are based-on RedHat, right?

    CentOS is based on RedHat one step behind RedHat's current release, so very stable and it is free.

    Fedora is many steps in front of RedHat, some might consider Fedora as RedHat's way of mass beta testing it's linux OS.

    Fedora is Red Hat's community-based "testing ground", so to say. Very much bleeding-edge. Relatively quick release / EOL cycles. CentOS is essentially equivalent to RHEL. Much longer release/support cycles. Stability is the key here.

    CentOS is based on exactly the same released version of RHEL.

    Fedora is not RHEL but it is a community project that's supported by RedHat and is, as you've mentioned, the bleeding edge testing ground for RedHat software. It's not a suitable platform for a mail server.

    Cool

    So I could use Centos5 with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 version of Zimbra?

    Yes, many of us on the forums use CentOS.

    Ok, I'll remove Fedora 11! And retry with Centos.

    Thanks
