In this video tutorial I will show you how to install VMware Zimbra 8 on the latest Ubuntu LTS: Ubuntu 12.04. This is OS is fully supported by Zimbra and therefore highly recommended.
Before starting you’ll need a fresh and fully updated version of Ubuntu 12.04 server (x64), and root access. You can gain root access by typing ‘sudo su’. After this you can update your machine by typing ‘apt-get update; apt-get upgrade -y; apt-get dist-upgrade -y; reboot’.
Install some necessary packages
# apt-get install libgmp3c2 libperl5.14 sqlite3 sysstat -y
Extract the files and start the installation process, follow the instructions
# tar xvf zcs….etc
# cd zcs…..etc
