    Default Zimbra is not working and I have no idea why

    I am running on Ubuntu 6.06. Just install zimbra 5.0GA for ubuntu. the setup went ok. xmcontrol sais
    zmcontrol status
    Host mail2.dashley.net
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    zmmailboxdctl is not running
    mta Running
    snmp Running
    spell Running
    stats Running

    I can not get the mailbox to run.. Apache is "runing" but not accepting connecitons. not even if I login to the gui and run localhost. there is something that I am not seeing. I have tried to attached the setup log file but it will not attach. there was one error when settiing up the documents portion but the main setup did not return an error. Here is what my /etc/hosts file looks like

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost mail2.dashley.net mail
    #192.168.0.10 mail2.dashley.net mail

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    any thoughts????

    Not sure if it's the cause of all your problems or not, but your /etc/hosts file is not right. You should get rid of the IPV6 stuff, unless you absolutely need it. Your hosts file should look something like:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.0.10 mail2.dashley.net mail
    Not sure about having the FQDN with "mail2" and the host name as "mail" either.

    Default

    Typically the hostname would match the first part of the FQDN. So yes, in your situation I would say either the FQDN should be mail.dashley.net or the hostname should be mail2.

    I can't say with 100% certainty that it won't work the way you've got it. I've just never configured any systems myself with the names not matching, and I don't recall anyone else posting with different names, but I could be wrong. Let's just put it this way. You'll be safer matching the names.
