    Default Debian + OSE

    Hoping I can get some pointers from all here with previuos Zimbra experience.

    I've installed Zimbra OSE on a fresh debian install

    I had to install a 2.6 kernel and SUDO, Libidn11, curl, fetchmail, libgmp3, libxml2, libstdc++6, openssl, file, perl and libexpat1 to get the install to complete.

    I also had to change the owner of the tomcat logfile in the zimbra/log directory ( can't remember the name at the mo ).

    If I do zmcontrol status everything shows as OK but I am unable to get to anything via web browser, I can ping the server from anothe machine though.

    Any idea where I should be looking for info ??

    any and all help gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Any Firewall or SElinux (if yours has that) active? If there is then disable them. Do you have correct /etc/hosts file & DNS A & MX records? On the server itself, can you telnet to ports 80 & 25? How are you trying to get to the server in the browser by url? If you are can you connect with http://ip-address/ on the server or from another workstation?
    Regards

    No firewall, it's a test server so justa fresh debian.

    Yes I can telnet the relevant ports but can't get to the server via any other machine - haven't tested it on the local machine - just got command line - could try lynx i suppose

    I think it may be postfix which I removed prior to installing Zimbra so I'm just doing fresh Debian install and will report back when I finish, thanks.

    Ok, I've done a complete fresh install.

    I get only one error when using the install.sh script and that is the MX record - this is a test server so i'm not bothered by that at the moment.

    Everything completes as it should and I run zmstatus and it returns that tomcat and postfix aren't working.

    I can ping the server and telnet into port 25 but that returns that the server is exim, however if i apt-get remove exim it states that exim is not installed.

    I am completely baffled by this.

    You need an MX record, Zimbra (postfix) will do a DNS lookup and if there's no MX record it will fail. Have you tried setting an MX record?

    Probably exim4

    # aptitude search exim
    will show what's installed.
    All that glitters .... oh look, a shiny thing
