    Default HTTPS problem

    Hello all,

    Am using Zimbra Open Source edition running on my server using Debian Sarge. I only started using it after installing it today. Very nice so far! But of course, I have a few teething problems. First one is that I'd like to use HTTPS rather than HTTP for obvious reasons. As I've already got Apache on my server, it uses up port 80 and 443. So I've assigned ports 8000 and 9021 for Zimbra's HTTP and HTTPS respectively. Accessing Zimbra via HTTP works beautifully, but via HTTPS doesn't work - logs doesn't indicate anything out of ordinary. Here's the output from NMAP:

    =============================
    destiny:/home/piers# nmap localhost

    Starting nmap 3.81 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2006-11-23 23:09 GMT
    Interesting ports on localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1):

    32772/tcp open sometimes-rpc7

    Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.611 seconds
    destiny:/home/piers#
    =============================

    I realise I shouldn't be using Zimbra and Apache on the same server, but I don't have the resources for another server.

    What am I doing wrong, and how do I fix this problem please?

    Also, while we're there, how can I disable POP3, POP3S and IMAP - only keeping IMAPS running please?

    Thanks very much for your help in advance.

    Regards - Piers

    During the installation process, did you specified you wanted both http and https ?

    If you didn't, Zimbra is working in http only.

    HTTPS on non-standard port

    It's not really "asked" 8)

    It's in one of the last steps of the command line setup, in the same "menu" system that the one to choose the admin password. You can choose the different ports for the daemon and you can choose too if it works in http and/or https.

    All of the menu items are accessable via the zmprov tool.
