- This article is a Work in Progress, and may be unfinished or missing sections.
Building Zimbra Collaboration Suite from Zimbra's Perforce cache requires advanced knowledge of troubleshooting. It is not available for the Network Edition (or Network Edition components). Changes cannot be committed to the Perforce cache.
The Perforce cache gives users access to download and build/modify Zimbra's Source code for Open Source products.
By building Zimbra, you agree to Zimbra's licensing terms. Building from source is not covered under the ZEUL, unlike pre-compiled binaries, but rather the YPL.
Technical support for source building can be found in the Zimbra Developers forum.
IMPORANT: Before attempting to build, please be sure to read the README for the branch release you're building.
By default, you will only be able to build "out of the box" with supported Operating Systems. However, you may be able to modify the source to get Zimbra to build on your OS of choice.
