    Default Xampp

    Im running XAMPP on my laptop so I can test client sites, I have never been interested in or learnt much more about the server side of things, although now I am a bit more keen to get some things set up.

    I was wondering is there any way to install zimbra with Xampp already installed?

    We don't use Xampp. Currently we handle all the install/config in the install for you. What specfically were you going to do with Zimbra + Xammp?

    Its the only testing server I have and I was just going to install the zimba parts (if possible although I doubted it) so I could have a good look around at how it all works. I like to have an understanding of these things before I reccomend them to anyone, I know of a large charity who are currently re evaluating their groupwise email system, and I think something like Zimba would be a good choice.

    thnx

    Default possible mysql, httpd conflict

    From what I gleaned from the xampp home page, the only obvious conflicts I see are with mysql and the httpd server - there will be port contention between the ZCS instances and the xampp instances (ports 3306 and 80/443, respectively).

    If you just want to test ZCS, you can install it without removing your current install - you'll just have to shut down the xampp instances prior to installing.

    So Zimbra has its own web server built-in? What if you have a corporate LAN with an existing web server, but you want to install Zimbra and provide web access to email? At our company right now, our web server hosts Squirrelmail which connects using SSL to our qmail server remotely (though both are on the same network). Is this possible with Zimbra?

    It is possible. We include tomcat which hosts the webclient. In your case Zimbra replaces both qmail and Squirrelmail.

    That's fine (that's my idea actually), but what about our web server? We've got 2 sites hosted on the Squirrelmail server (our company sites), how can I allow access to both webmail and those sites from outside the firewall? Should I (can I) change the listening port for Tomcat?

    The tomcat webclient can be accessed over SSL (https) on port 443. So you can just open up port 443 to your Zimbra server. If you actually need to change the port (ie they are conflicting since it's one server)

    Take a look at:

    Support for Small Installs

    This talks about changing the web port.

    Thanks for this post, that is exactly what I'm looking for. The Zimbra server wouldn't be on the same server as our web server, the problem only exists because of access outside the firewall (i.e. our websites are public). No one on the same network would have a problem. I just need to change some things around for the sake of the rules on our PIX, while leaving our web server intact.

    One other thing you'll have to do is make sure you turn off the forwarding for port 80 to the ZCS tomcat instance.

    Edit /opt/zimbra/bin/zmiptables, and take out the 80 => 7070 forwarding, then run:
    zmiptables -u
    zmiptables -i
    for the change to take effect.
