# REDIRECT [[Building_Zimbra_using_Git]]
==General Information==
 
The perforce cache gives users access to download and build/modify Zimbra source code for Open Source products. Building Zimbra Collaboration Suite from Zimbra's Perforce cache requires advanced knowledge of troubleshooting. It is not available for Network Edition components. Changes cannot be committed to the Perforce cache.
 
 
 
By building Zimbra, you agree to Zimbra's licensing terms. Building from source is not covered under the [http://www.zimbra.com/license/zimbra_public_eula_2.1.html ZEUL], unlike pre-compiled binaries, but rather the [http://www.zimbra.com/license/yahoo_public_license_1.0.html YPL].
 
 
 
Technical support for source building can be found in the [http://www.zimbra.com/forums/developers/ Zimbra Developers forum].
 
 
 
By default, you will only be able to build "out of the box" with supported operating systems (see list on [http://www.zimbra.com/community/downloads.html site] or files in ZimbraBuild/defs). However, you may be able to modify the source to get Zimbra to build on your OS of choice.
 
 
 
==Basic Walkthrough==
 
At it's simplest, to obtain the source you need to essentially:
 
 
 
Download the p4 command line client: [http://www.perforce.com/perforce/downloads/platform.html Perforce Downloads]
 
<pre>
 
export P4PORT=codes.zimbra.com:2666
 
mkdir -p /home/public/p4
 
./p4 -u public -P public1234 -c public-view sync -f //depot/zcs/BRANCH/...
 
</pre>
 
 
 
'''IMPORANT''': Before attempting to build, please be sure to read the README for the branch release you're building.
 
 
 
--
 
 
 
New master script for (5.0.14+):
 
./home/public/p4/BRANCH/ZimbraBuild/buildZCS.sh -t
 
(This will help you through adding Ant & JDK, check dependencies, build ThridParty using a public CPAN mirror for Perl, then start the ZCS build process.)
 
 
 
==Building Zimbra Collaboration Suite: "FRANKLIN"==
 
Franklin is the latest 5.0 series release. Current version & changelist can be found on [http://pm.zimbra.com/pm_release.php?rel=5.0 Pmweb]

==Building "Nighties"==
 
The 'main' branch, (often referred to as mainline) contains the latest code - if your interested in seeing pre-release software check it out.
 
 
 
It is constantly in flux (for instance we might stagger spec files to avoid the need to always rebuild ThirdParty), if your hitting a error in the Zimbra build side the first thing to do is re-sync, as we typically resolve these fast.
 
 
 
Under Construction:

==Building Older Versions==
 
Sometimes BRANCH-xxx is created (such as FRANKLIN-5013) giving you the ability to get just a particular prior version rather than the tip of FRANKLIN.
 
 
 
The source for older versions can be found at SourceForge.
 
 
 
==Troubleshooting==
 
[[configure: error: User zimbra (and/or group zimbra) doesn't exist.]]
 
 
 
Under construction:
 
 
 
Perforce client error |
 
Connection reset by peer |
 
Third Party Component Failures |
 
Perl Components fail to build
