    Default Zimbra Install Woes!

    Well I thought I would take a look at what Zimbra offers. I come from a MS Exchange background and have worked with the product since version 5.0. I think I can safely say at this juncture I will not be giving up my day job!

    Anyway on to my problem - I have now been trying to install Zimbra for over 2 days and being a non Linux person you can probably appreciate how frustrating this is. I have deployed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on HyperV, have all the networking setup and configured correctly, I can ping other hosts etc etc. I have all the hostnames set correctly. I have followed several step by step guides and everything works fine until I actually try to install Zimbra. When I kick off the install I get the following:

    Checking for prerequisites...


    One or more prerequisite packages are missing.
    Please install them before running this installer.

    I have installed all of those pre-requisites several times over. When I run the apt-get install it states that the module is already the latest version and installed. I have seen various potential fixes like using CHMOD 777 on the Zimbra directory but nothing works. I am stuck and this is driving me insane.
    I am running the 64bit version of Ubuntu and I'm trying to install the latest Zimbra package.

    Can anyone please assist or point me in the right direction?

    Many thanks

    What is the exact name of the file you downloaded? Was this a minimal install or a 'normal' install?

    Oh! - school boy error! on checking I think I must of picked up an older version of Zimbra meant for Ubuntu 6! I guess I must of zoned out last night. I am now downloading the correct version and will post back if this doesn't fix my issue.

    Many thanks Bill, appreciate you pointing me in the right direction!
