    Default General Config questions

    So the install went great on my FC4 box, but I cant seem to tell if its running I go to http://myipinternaladdy/zimbra nothing comes up, so Since im new to mail servers, and a Novice with Linux could someone please walk me throught the steps after the install aka the configuration, I looked around the forums but couldnt find anything that really seemed to help Ive seen this thread and used ti to set up it http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthr...&highlight=fc4

    My host file should I leave it 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    or should I set it to 127.0.0.1 mymachinename.mydomain mymachiine name
    I have edited a host file before.

    thanks

    What does your /etc/hosts look like now? Anything in /opt/zimbra/logs/zimbra.log?

    Your /etc/hosts file should have two lines. Can you post your entire file? Try /opt/zimbra/log

    yeah it should look more like this (a.b.c.d is the ip address):

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    a.b.c.d host.domain.com host


    hopefully the host name is also set up in the (local) dns so that this command displays a.b.c.d:

    host `hostname`

    Hmmm the a.b.c.d should be my ip its getting from dhcp right? and I didnt set anything up in local, this was from a 100% unmodified install of FC4 other then Yum updates and Yum installs that are listed in the other thread

    Default localhost.localdomain

    you're zimbra server is set to the hostname localhost.localdomain, and that hostname isn't in your /etc/hosts file.

    Default can't determine services

    Is ldap running? Try zmcontrol start.

    zmhostname
    zmlocalconfig ldap_url
    Should return the same hostname.
    zmlocalocnfig ldap_is_master - should be true if this is the ldap server.
