    ERROR: Installation can not proceeed. Please fix your /etc/hosts file
    to contain:

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

    Zimbra install grants mysql permissions only to localhost and
    localhost.localdomain users. But Fedora/RH installs leave lines such
    as these in /etc/hosts:

    127.0.0.1 myhost.mydomain.com myhost localhost.localdomain localhost

    This causes MySQL to reject users coming from 127.0.0.1 as users from
    myhost.mydomain.com. You can read more details at:

    Exclamation

    That's okay.

    The problem is with your hosts file as it indicates.
    When it comes to name resolution (resolving Name addresses [eg google.com] to ip addresses[192.168.0.1]), you hosts file is read before your computer will check your nameservers. Name servers are alot like the internet's phonebook.

    >[prompt]tail /etc/hosts

    should show you enough of the hosts file to post. Basically, you need 2 entries in your hosts file:

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    [ip of adapter] hostname.domain.com hostname

    Now, DNS isn't really all that complicated...but i suppose it can be

    Before you dive into an install that is almost destined to be filled with DNS errors, consider the following:

    Do you host your own DNS, or do you have access to be able to add records to your service providers DNS?
    If YES, then, you need to make sure that you add/have a type=A record pointing to your machine. Make sure you have a record in your nameserver as well. You also need an MX record (Mail Exchanger) pointing to the machine.
    If you are behind a firewall, or have SE Linux installed, it will help to turn those off to avoid errors (the linux machine can handle its own).

    I encorage you not to give up. This could be a great chance to be able to learn about DNS and Linux.

    Now, if you do not have a static IP, then it's probably a good idea to not set up a mail server. You're gonna have a lot of problems.

    Good luck, and let us know. We're here to help!

    Have a look at the Zimbra Quick Start guide (there's a link on the Documentation page), there's details of what your hosts file should be and where it's located. You also need to say which version of Linux you're using.
