I've been running Zimbra at home as well as at work for quite a while now, and it's always ran on it's own server, be that physical or virtual.
I''ve now changed the configuration of my home network and ditched the use of VMWare. The Zimbra VM always ran very slowly, even though the server was of decent spec (twin core 3.2G Xeon, 8GB ram).
So the server is now running plain Ubuntu 8.04 and Zimbra 5.0.11, I've just finished getting it all working, I just need to get my SSL certificate back in (I hate SSL more than anything in IT)
I want to use the server for more than just zimbra still though, which will involve installing PHP, Apache2 and MySQL on it for general use.
The merits of this have been discussed before and I know it's not the best idea in the world, but the question I have is this:
Should I move the Zimbra ports for SQL & webserver to nonstandard ports so they dont interfere with the general services --OR
Should I install the general services on nonstandard ports and leave the Zimbra ports where they are?
I'm thinking it will be much easier to move the Zimbra ports (and if that's so, can I get some help there? )
Could I get a few opinions on the best way to go?
