How to install Zimbra in CentOS

Prerequisites: 1. You need to configure the DNS entry that is pointing to the server. 2. You need to verify the hostname of the server in the files " /etc/sysconfig/network " and " /etc/hosts ". 3. The machine will need at least 1024mb of memory to run the default Zimbra services. 4. You will need to install some required packages to proceed with the setup and avoid errors further on: *wget – download utility that will be using to download the latest version of Zimbra Open Source Edition. *postfix – an open-source mail transfer agent (MTA) that routes and delivers electronic mail; installation of Zimbra will fail without this package. *ntp – a protocol designed to synchronize the clocks of computers over a network. You can install these packages with the following command: # yum install wget postfix ntp Installation steps: 1. mkdir /download 2. cd /download 3. wget
