    Question OSE on Debian - installation troubleshooting

    Greetings One and All

    Currently evaluating both versions of zimbra - network edition on RHEL is looking good so far.

    OSE on Debian is proving somewhat troublesome....

    Server is:
    o dual xeon c/w 2GB RAM
    o debian stable
    o 2.6.8-3-686-smp

    Think we now have the box in the desired state - minimal install and pre-requisites loaded, but still no go with zimbra.

    Zimbra install appears to complete. last actions ...
    ./install.sh -u
    ./install.sh

    But ...

    # zmcontrol status
    Host XXXX.XXXXXXX.net
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    tomcat is not running
    mta Running
    snmp Running
    spell Running

    Assistance with troubleshooting hints/docs much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Default logging?

    Whats in /opt/zimbra/log/zimbra.log? Try restarting Zimbra and then maybe grep for things like ERROR. Most likely if you tail the file right after Zimbra starts you'll get something about the failure.

    If it's 4.5 that file is now called /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log

    And look for anything odd

    Many thanks chaps

    Yes, the problem was indeed related to logging. There was a permissions issue with a log file - don't recall which one now.

    Permissions altered and all is rosy
    All that glitters .... oh look, a shiny thing
