    Everything that Zimbra needs is provided in the installation package, you will need to set-up a Split DNS (if you're behind a NAT router) and have a correct /etc/hosts file (see the Quick Start Installation Guide for details) plus any required pre-requisites for the operating system.

    are these instructions included in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server (Hardy Heron) Install Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki ?


    Basically in both guides, the one for split dns and the installation guide i provided below it often says create the files db.server.mydomain.com, db.xxx.xxx.xxx, db.server.example.com.
    What do i have to do in this occasion. Create the file from scratch by vi-ing it ? With what extension to save the file ?

    thnx

    Yes, you always need a Split DNS set-up if you're behind a NAT router and the link to the Ubuntu instructions contains that.

    I thought I'd answered that? As long as you meet the minimum required specifications then it should be fine.

    If you mean the LDAP and MySQL question I thought I'd also answered that by saying that the downloaded binary contains everything you need? The basic installation is on a single server and you should not be running any other applications on it, the mail is stored locally - all these questions are answered in the documentation.

    For my home server, instead of doing the split DNS, I added a second (Fake) interface to my eth0 that had my public IP address.

    cd /etc/network

    cat interfaces

    auto eth0:Alias
    iface eth0:Alias inet static
    address my.public.ip.address
    netmask 255.255.254.0
