Hi Folks,

here comes another dumb newbie question which is fine given I am new to linux.

OK I'm trying to install Zimbra but I keep getting the following error

ERROR: Installation can not proceed. Please fix your /etc/hosts file to contain: localhost.localdomain localhost

Well I added the line to host file as is and then rebooted with no sucess So I then replaced localhost.localdomain with mailserver.xrar.com.au localhost which is name of my server, still no luck.

here is my current host file contents mailserver.xrar.com.au localhost mailserver.xrar.com.au mailserver

any thoughts this has got me really stumped.

Currently I am trying to install zimbra on CentOS 5 running within VMware.
