    Default Running apache and zimbra webmail on the same host

    Hi,

    how old/accurate is this wiki page ?

    ZimbraApache - Zimbra :: Wiki

    I need to run apache and Zimbra on either a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or CentOS 6 (both 64bits).


    Thanks

    I believe the entire document was built around the fact that the situation described is based around a limitation of only a single IP address.

    I'm a Linux newbie so I don't have the hands-on experience of administering a Linux web server but on the Windows side, I typically have multiple IP addresses for a web server. One IP for each distinct web site. And since I run them behind a firewall, that means the IP addresses are all internal on the web server but I also have external IP addresses which are associated to the domain name and when the firewall sees one of these external IP addresses, it then forwards it to the matching internal IP address on the web server.

    I would assume the same can be done with Ubuntu / Apachii. Assign multiple IP addresses to the NIC and configure the web server to assign a unique IP to each web site...basically, adding a new IP for the new web site and leave the existing one alone for use by Zimbra. That would allow you the flexibility to enable/disable SSL or use both mode at the same time.

    Hello,

    I dont need more than 1 IP address , Im sure about that. My question was more about the wiki page, it seems outdated. I already switched my Zimbra to https, so my port 80 is available now. Ill probably just dump my website on the server and see how it gows from there.

    Ill let you know when its done.

    Hi, Zimbra uses jetty instead of Apache as Web Server...

    Are you planning install Apache too in the Zimbra Server?

    Do you think I can use jetty to host a website on port 80 ?

    No, do not use any of the Zimbra components for anything other than their intended purpose. You may break your system and any changes will get wiped out at every Zimbra upgrade.

    If I am understanding this right, you don't want to do anything that could cause issues with Zimbra such as modifying Zimbra resources (jetty for example).

    You can run other programs on your server but you will need to make sure there won't be any conflicts...such as DNS modifications, shared ports (like port 80), etc.

    If you have a virtual environment, it would probably be better to just spin up a dedicated apachii server to avoid upgrade woes. If you don't have virtuals, well, that would mean another box.
    Type su - zimbra -c "zmcontrol -v" to get your version and copy that into your profile (more info here)

    Thank you !

    The other box is already loading Centos 6 .
