    Default Installation problems on CentOS 5 64-Bit

    So I am trying to install Zimbra on a VPS which is running CentOS 5 and is a clean installation. Every time I try to install I get this output:
    Code:
    Installing packages
    
        zimbra-core......zimbra-core-6.0.8_GA_2661.F11_64-20100820041438.x86_64.rpm...FAILED
    ###ERROR###
    
    zimbra-core-6.0.8_GA_2661.F11_64-20100820041438.x86_64.rpm installation failed
    
    Installation cancelled
    And when I try to manually run the core package I get:
    Code:
    -bash: ./zimbra-core-6.0.8_GA_2661.F11_64-20100820041438.x86_64.rpm: cannot execute binary file
    Anyone have any insight as to what is the cause of my problem?

    You mean apart from the fact you're trying to install a Fedora 11 binary on a CentOS system? I'd suggest you download the correct version for your server.

    Well there is no download of the open source version for CentOS, at least none that I saw so I figured Fedora would be the closest to CentOS.

    Why is it the 'closest to CentOS'? Fedora is a bleeding edge distribution and is not what I'd call a suitable build for a long-term stable mail server. CentOS is a binary compatible rebuild of RHEL5, there's a build for RHEL on the downloads page - use that.

    Evidently I did not notice that one at the top I'll try that one out and hopefully things work out.

    You might want to take a look at the instructions Linode offers for installing Zimbra on CentOS. It is pretty straightforward, even if I still have an issue with getting the logger to perform correctly after install. Also, I suspect that most people want to use their "hostname -d" (eg. domain.com) rather than "hostname -f" (eg. mail.domain.com) for email addresses.

    Depending on how you installed CentOS or the specifics of the image from your VPS you may need to add different packages, too. I'm personally pretty happy with Linode, because they make it extremely easy to resize nodes and change the capacity to fit changing needs.

    Note that CentOS is meant to be identical to RHEL. The replication of functionality is even said to be bug-for-bug compatible.
