yes been away on business just starting the builds for 5.0.7 today!
I will also provide a link at the top of this thread so others know where to get it too.
Thanks again for your work.
5.0.7 packages for Ubuntu 8.04LTS 32bit and 64bit available at the sourceforge link above. Please let me know of any problems.
On a good related note, code for 8.04 started to get added to the main codebase this week, so official support should show up soon.
To save you from any future hassles and errors you definitely need to look closely at all errors and instructions supplied by Zimbra to ensure a smooth installation.
First problem I see is that you are trying to install a package of Zimbra designed for Ubuntu 6.0.4 onto Ubuntu 8.0.4. as indicated by first message
I strongly suggest you use the latest version of Zimbra kindly provided by dijichi2 which has been built especially for Ubuntu 8.04Code:WARNING: ZCS is currently only supported on Ubuntu Server 6.06 LTS. You are attempting to install on Ubuntu 8.04 which may not work.
It can be found here for download.
The next issue is your hosts file.
It is really important that you have a fully qualified domain name as email addresses use the domain and not the hostname of a computer.
The message below from your screenshot indicated this
If you look at your hosts file, it does not follow this format.Code:ERROR: Installation can not proceeed. Please fix your /etc/hosts file to contain: ip FQHN HN
You need to change the line
To something similar to (where yourdomain.com is your actual domain name as defined in the DNS server you use)Code:192.168.7.161 mailserver mail
Which leads me to the next thing you may have trouble with, you need to have setup a proper DNS record for the host you have in your hosts file (ie an A record and MX record).Code:192.168.7.161 mail.yourdomain.com mail
If you are unsure what these things mean, check out the Zimbra Wiki, or search the forums, or even search the internet on instruction for setting up DNS server for ubuntu.
Hope this helps.

ty a lot, i'll download zimbra for ubuntu 8.04 and try again
Ok thought I would mess around with Ubuntu 8.04 this weekend. Found it was easier to install the desktop version, and down load a few server daemons, than install Ubuntu server and download and install a desktop for it. So hopefully that shouldn't matter..?? And I unlocked the 'root' account because after messing with linux since 92 I just cant stand using sudo.
Any way came across this new version of Zimbra and downloaded from Source Forge. And when I go to install I had to install libstdc++5, but everything else went ok on the system check. After asking what "modules" of Zimbra to install and asking if I wanted to modify the system I got the following:
The system will be modified. Continue? [N] y
zimbra-core_5.0.7_GA_2450.UBUNTU8_i386.deb installation failed
Any one have any ideas?
I'm sorry, the psychics have left the building. If you give us some errors from the logs we might be able to help. /tmp/install.xxx would give you an idea of where it's failing. It's either failing at preinstall of the core package because you're using a wierd OS setup, or it also fails at that point if you're trying to use the wrong architecture - ie 64bit on 32bit OS.
hi everybody, can i install moodle(e-learning) in my server? i already have installed zimbra and i think i'll get some proble with apache, what can i do?
