Not exactly sure where to post this so forgive me if I have chosen the wrong place.

I do some part time work for a company. I have dug myself a hole working with Zimbra and now it is completely hosed. Their SSL cert was about to expire on their mail server running ZCS 5.0.19?. That version doesn't allow the generation of 2048 bit signing requests so I thought it prudent to update ZCS to a newer version. I am not great with command line computing but know enough to be ok with performing simple tasks. I had done some updates for them in the past so it wasn't completely foreign to me. I attempted to install 7.2.3 and everything went well until the installation stopped due to the fact that "/opt/zimbra requires at least 5GB of space to install."

I did some searching around and found this...http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...ng-errors.html. So I though hey why don't I just create a symbolic link and try the installation again so I entered "ln -s /var/opt /opt" even though I didn't know what it did really. I had second thoughts about running a new version installation after doing that so I decided to just create a self signed certificate using this walk-through (Administration Console and CLI Certificate Tools - Zimbra :: Wiki) for the time being until I figured out what to do. So I went ahead and created, then installed a self signed certificate.

Once I restarted all the Zimbra services nothing would work. The logs show all kinds of errors, a lot of low disk space errors, and I am thinking that it may have something to do with the symlink but I have no idea. I'm working on this remotely and will not have access to the box until tomorrow and was hoping anyone would have an idea on where I should start. I'll post part of the log from the last time I tried to start all the service.

Hope someone can help...thanks
