    Default Installation | Remote shared web host? (new to Zimbra, but technically sound :))

    hi folks,

    I've been looking through the primer/quick start guide and noticed a few points about OS changes. This leads me to ask...

    Can I install Zimbra on a remote shared host? I've been trying to determine from the pre-reqs if this is possible or not ... the product looks awesome!

    Thanks for your help and have a good one!

    -Rob

    Howdy,

    That depends ;-)

    It can definitely run on a shared host, I run it now in such an environment.

    However, that only works if you have admin rights... Zimbra isn't just a web interface, but the entire mail system (web, smtp, imap, pop, etc), for the server. So, you'd be replacing Postfix or Sendmail or whatever with Zimbra.

    Good luck,
    -Eric

    Bottom line you need full root access on the box.
