Ok, first of all sorry for the caps, I know thats not appreciated, but it does express my emotions right now. I told my boss I would be able to do this probably fine. He heard about Zimbra and wants to use it for his mail. I suggested google apps because thats easy and easy for me, but he doesn't want google having his stuff. So he bought a computer, and installed Ubuntu Hardy Heron on it. I read around and not sure if he needs to have a different os, hopefully this one is ok. I've been connecting remotely to control his new computer from my asus eee. I downloaded the open source tgz file to the tmp folder and extracted it. I then opened terminal and went to the directory and ran ./install.sh and got stopped with the error:
ERROR: Installation can not proceeed. Please fix your /etc/hosts file
is the ip address of the host,
is the FULLY QUALIFIED host name, and
is the (optional) hostname-only portion
I did google around and searched the boards so please don't yell at me, but I still can't figure out how to fix it.
I opened the hosts file and this is what is there:
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
I have been searching all day and trying different solutions. Please don't tell me to search more. I need help specific to my situation. And just for extra info you may need this guy has 3 companies and is looking to start a new mail server and not really move anything over. Thanks in advance anyone who decides to take time out and help this n00b. Please leave AIM's/Skype's/Gtalks/Emails/Y!s/Etc. So that maybe I can talk to you while doing it and get guided through the situation. Thank you so so so so so so much.
