    Default Error after install when starting up

    Hey all. I'm evaluating the Zimbra Open Source edition, as my company is considering using it instead of Exchange for our small installation of users.

    I'm running this on CentOS 4.2. The installation itself worked without any errors.

    When I attempt to start Zimbra up, it fails with these messages. I didn't see anything similar in the forums already - advice appreciated.

    Host zimbra.int

    Very odd. What command are you running?

    Whoops, the 'grep tmp' requested output was a cluestick.

    My /tmp dir had incorrect perms. Re-chmodded it to 1777, and I'm crusin now. Don't know how that happened, but glad the fix was so simple.

    Thanks gents!

    [root@zimbra zcs]# ls -l / | grep tmp
    drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Apr 19 09:01 tmp
    [root@zimbra zcs]# chmod 1777 /tmp
    [root@zimbra zcs]# ls -l / | grep tmp
    drwxrwxrwt 5 root root 4096 Apr 19 09:01 tmp
    [root@zimbra zcs]# service zimbra start
