    Question [SOLVED] New installation : advice to save times

    Hi all,
    I'm new to Zimbra and would like to use it to a new, fresh network.
    I'll have around 10 users.
    As there current mail server is crash, I'll have to make it ready asap ...

    I'm used to Ubuntu server and Debian.

    My first question is what OS should I use ?
    I saw in the quick Start, I can use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64bit) or Debian 5. Is it still up to date ? Can I use Debian 7 ?

    Is there common error I should take care about ?

    Do you have any advice to give (or loan) me ?

    Thanks
    Cyril
    edit : ( I'm currently reading the documentation )

    Debian isn't a supported platform.

    Read the documentation and Quick Start Guides, install the prerequisites and DNS and search the forums for potential problems (and solutions).

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks for this quick, short and efficient answer.

    I'll have to buy a book about CentOS, so.
    I've never try to install it.
    I hope I'll not lost time on using it.

    Regards,
    Cyril

    It really is straightforward, if you can install Ubuntu you can install CentOS - the major difference would be package management (yum rather than apt - a more reliable package manager than apt) but again that's fairly straightforward.

    You shouldn't, good luck.
