    Default No shell access

    Hello All:

    I don't have shell access on my server (cpanel admin with the ssh option disabled). Am I just out of luck? With no root access (my lowest level of access is home/username) could I intall it in the non-public base directory and install via raw ftp command? Just thinking out loud here.

    Default big problem

    Getting this to install would be a pretty large undertaking - you'd have to convince rpm to install in a different directory than /opt/zimbra.

    Once that's done, you would have a real problem running the system, since you won't be able to bind to any privileged ports - which means, among other things, that you won't be able to receive mail.

    Default no rpm

    Come to think of it, rpm won't let you install anything if you're not root - so you'll have to download the source, and try to make the dev-install targets work by changing the destination paths. You still won't be able to bind to port 25, 80, 443, 389, etc..
