uninstall/re-install problem

Postby TheCowStir » Sun Oct 16, 2005 7:39 pm

This is more of a comment than a question.
My experience with trying to get Zimbra working has been a little troubled starting by my inability to spell zimbra correctly (zimba instead of zimbra).. Two uninstall/re-installs later I have it working after starting to dig into some of the innards.
1. Since a lot of people seem to be having problems with the ldap server still running after an uninstall/re-install, maybe the installer should check for slapd running.
2. Here is a problem with the installer, (I think).

During part of my troubleshooting installs I added a mysql user. The last install generated this problem in the log.

and found that the zimbra users have a new UID however the owners of /var/spool/mail/postfix and zimbra are the old users.

Hope this helps for the next version of the installer. Let me know if you need any further information.[/FONT]

Yes we are adding some more checks on the installer to help prevent this.

Ok after you added that user did you do a full uninstall (install.sh -u) and then reinstall. You may have confused the installer if you did this and didn't clean up first.
Thanks for the note.
