    Default Installation.. and Probs after..

    Hey all,

    ive some questions.. i installed via install.sh on my debian machine, most of things looked good, except of the dns ? i dont have a static ip or a domain.. i just want to use it on my lan and with my dyndns.... which hostname should i try ?

    then the little config screen is coming, i ll give a pw and a ldap master host "localhost.localdomain". then i saved the config file.. it should have started.. but i only can see my apache installation site.. whats wrong ? y are there no files in the /var/www/ dir ? what went wrong ?

    zmcontrol status returns this:

    Code:
    zimbra@mamoru:/var/log$ zmcontrol status
    Cannot determine services - exiting
    zimbra@mamoru:/var/log$
    and zmcontrol stop this:

    Code:
    zimbra@mamoru:/var/log$ zmcontrol stop
    Host localhost.localdomain

    If this is just for testing I would suggest you install a local DNS server and create a domain name (it doesn't need to be registered outside for zimbra to work) that is local to you, don't use localhost.localdomain. You'll also need to create an entry in /etc/hosts file for your server, have a look in the quickstart guide for information on the format.

    If you are collecting mail from a mailbox at your ISP then use fetchmail and if you have DNS installed you can deliver the mail directly or you can relay through your ISPs SMTP server.

    The install probably failed because you don't have a domain name set and the hosts file is incorrect.

    Oh, and you will need a static IP address on the LAN. if you're going to use dyndns then you'll need to connect to one of the IMAP or POP3 ports which, I assume, is what you're trying to do?

    Are you actually trying to have mail delivered to port 25 on your zimbra server?

    I'm also new to linux but this post will tell you what you need to do. I think it may be helpful if you described how you intend to set-up and use zimbra before making any changes.
