Zimbra™ Collaboration Suite Single Server Installation - Open Source > Installing Zimbra Software

Installing Zimbra Software
Open an SSH session to the Zimbra server and follow the steps below.
Log in as root to the Zimbra server and cd to the directory where the Zimbra Collaboration Suite archive tar file is saved (cd /var/<tmp>). Type the following commands:
tar xzvf [zcsfullfilename.tgz], to unpack the file.
cd [zcsfullfilename] to change to the correct directory.
./install.sh to begin the installation.
The install.sh script reviews the installation software to verify that the Zimbra packages are available.
[root@mailhost tmp]# tar xzvf zcs.tgz
[root@mailhost tmp]# cd zcs-NETWORK-7.0.0_GA_2834.UBUNTU10_64.20101015012627
[root@mailhost tmp/zcs-NETWORK-7.0.0_GA_2834.UBUNTU10_64.20101015012627# ./install.sh
          zimbra-core...NOT FOUND
Screenshots in this guide are examples of the Zimbra installation script. The actual script may be different.
The installation process checks to see if Sendmail, Postfix, and MySQL software are running. If any of these applications are running, you are asked to disable them. Disabling MySQL is optional but highly recommended. Sendmail and Postfix must be disabled for the Zimbra Collaboration Suite to start correctly.
Next, the installer checks to see that the prerequisite software is installed. If the prerequisite software packages are not installed, the installation process stops. You must fix the problem and start the installation over. See Other Dependencies in System Requirements for Zimbra Collaboration Suite 7.0.
Select the services to be installed on this server. To install Zimbra Collaboration Suite on a single server, enter Y for the ldap, logger, mta, snmp, store, and spell packages.The installer verifies that there is enough room to install ZCS. If there is not, the installation stops.
Next, type Y and press Enter to modify the system.
Checks to see if MX record is configured in DNS. The installer checks to see if the hostname is resolvable via DNS. If there is an error, the installer asks if you would like to change the hostname. We recommend that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS.
At this point, the Main menu displays showing the default entries for the Zimbra component you are installing. To expand the menu to see the configuration values, type X and press Enter. The Main menu expands to display configuration details for the package being installed. Values that require further configuration are marked with asterisks (****) to their left.
