Building Zimbra on Fedora Core 5 and x86 64

Revision as of 16:42, 9 May 2006 by JoshPrismon (talk | contribs)

Unfortuntily the standard zimbra documentation is way out of date. As I hit issues with this, I will update this page and the documetation below.

Check the source code out:

  cvs -z6 -d :pserver:anonymous:@cvs.zimbra.com:/usr/local/cvsroot co main

--- Building the Web Server for Zimlets. Zimbra uses a httpd instance for Zimlets and the spell checker. Apache 2.0.54 is used for this. Zimbra documentation has a tendency to be wrong about versions, so check the makefile carefully for whatever version the software is currently expecting.

  • Zimbra Folks... Would it be possible to put up a copy of the ThirdParty stuff uncompiled? You loose a lot of time just digging for the software*

Build the web server:

  cd main/ThirdParty/apache-httpd
  wget http://archive.apache.org/dist/httpd/httpd-2.0.54.tar.gz
  sudo make

The final output should look like:

  (cd /opt/zimbra; tar czf \
  /home/Projects/Source/Zimbra/main/ThirdParty/apache-httpd/builds/UNKNOWN/httpd-2.0.54.tgz \
  httpd-2.0.54)
  chmod -R a+w \
  /home/Projects/Source/Zimbra/main/ThirdParty/apache-httpd/builds/UNKNOWN/httpd-2.0.54.tgz
