    Default Can't Connect to Admin Console

    Hello,

    I'm trying to connect to the admin console for the first time and i'm getting an error message

    Unable to connect, can't establish a connection to the server.

    When I run zmcontrol status I get this response:

    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    tomcat is not running
    mta Stopped
    postfix is not running
    snmp Running
    spell Running


    Any help offered would be appreciated.

    Paul.

    Welcome to the forums.

    This has been covered dozens of times in the forums, did you search? Did the install work OK? Tomcat being stopped is the problem, what's in the catalina.out logfile? Do you have another MTA and/or web server running on your server?
    Regards

    Hey Phoenix,

    Thanks for responding.

    I checked the forums but didn't notice anything upon first glance that answered my question.

    The install seemed to work okay except that I did receive an error regarding port conflicts. The Zimbra installer reported port conflicts on port 993, 995, 110, 143, 25, 80, 443.

    I checked the log file as you said. It reads:

    Jan 23, 2007 10:07:15 AM org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11BaseProtocol init
    SEVERE: Error initializing endpoint
    java.net.BindException: Address already in use:80


    When i check the status of the Tomcat daemon it says that it is running, however

    Do I need do something with Apache?

    Thanks for the hep,

    Paul.

    Yes, if you're not using apache you need to kill it and disable it from starting.

    If you've got port conflicts on all those other ports in your list then you've probably got another mailserver running, you'll need to kill that as well.

    Once you've got rid of everything else you can restart zimbra by running 'zmcontrol stop' then 'zmcontrol start' as the zimbra user.
    Regards

    I killed httpd and qmail and rebooted yet I still get the same message when running zmcontrol status.


    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    tomcat is not running
    mta Stopped
    postfix is not running
    snmp Running
    spell Running

    It says that tomcat is not runnign here but when i do an /etc/init.d/tomcat5 start it says that it's already running.

    Anything else I can do?

    Thanks,

    Paul.

    Zimbra has it's own tomcat bundled with ZCS, thus it cannot start because you have another instance running.

    ZCS comes with it's own:
    LDAP (Port 389)
    MTA (Port 25)
    Mysql (Port 7037)
    Apache/Tomcat (You can specify the port)

    That's it, I think. If I'm wrong, someone please post.

    thanks
    john

    check "ps aux | grep -e http -e tomcat". is it httpd or tomcat that's running on 80?
