Zimbra 5 install on CentOS 5 / MX Record
To begin, I apologize if this answer is in another post. If it is, then I didn't find it.
I am working to install Zimbra 5.02 on a 64-bit CentOS 5 Linux server. The current email setup for this organization is a simple POP3 email service to its hosting service, so I can't afford to redirect the MX record in order to setup Zimbra. Here are my questions / issues:
- Can Zimbra be successfully installed and setup without resolving a MX record during setup?
- If so, will it be easy for Zimbra to pick up the email traffic once the MX record is redirected?
- Is anyone else having trouble with the SQL databases not populating during setup? Setup for Zimbra-store can not connect to the MySQL server via its socket.
I know that these are detailed questions, but any help would be greatly appreciated!
