    1. Using Fedora Core 5, install the operating system with its default configuration i.e., default partition layout.

     

    • Assign a live IP to the system along with the local IP.

     

     

    • Hostname should be fully qualified i.e., mail.example.com.

     

     

    • Make sure your FQDN is before your hostname in /etc/hosts e.g,

     

     

    203.99.34.47 example.com mail

      1. Configure the DNS with A and MX records of the mail server.

       

      • Make sure the following ports are open:

       

       

      25

      SMTP
        1. Linux firewall and SELinux should be disabled.

         

        Installing Zimbra:

          1. Untar Zimbra to a new directory.

           

          • Make sure sendmail, postfix and mysql services are not running during installation process.

           

           

          • Pre-requisite packages for Zimra:

          #sudo
          #libidn
          #cURL
          #fetchmail
          #GMP or compat-libstddcc++

            1. Run ./install.sh from the new directory to start the installation.

             

            • Select packages to install (Default should go fine)

             

             

            • Create the admin password from the menu list (that’s mandatory).
