General information

Please, read Zimbra_on_FreeBSD for all the details.

This guide describes installing HELIX-714 on FreeBSD-9_amd64.

At this point it's good to note that everything should be run as root unless stated otherwise.

Preparing run enviroment via zimbra.imladris.sk

Since some people like to compile and others like to install-only I built all the necessary zimbra-rundeps packages.

cd /tmp && \
    fetch http://zimbra.imladris.sk/download/packages/HELIX-714/FreeBSD-9/amd64/zimbra-rundeps-7.1.4.tgz && \
        tar xzf zimbra-rundeps-7.1.4.tgz && \
            cd zimbra-rundeps-7.1.4 && \
                pkg_add zimbra-rundeps-7.1.4.tbz && \
                    cd /tmp && rm -rf zimbra-rundeps-7.1.4

If you are using a csh derivate shell, which is the FreeBSD default, run:

rehash

Grats, you just saved yourself a lot of time.

Quick-hacks for a better day

Since Zimbra is a Linux lover by nature everything is /bin/bash but guess what.. we have /usr/local/bin/bash:

ln -s /usr/local/bin/bash /bin/bash

Installing Zimbra Collaboration Suite: HELIX-714 via zimbra.imladris.sk

Fetch HELIX-714 FreeBSD-9_amd64 packages:

cd /tmp && \
    fetch http://zimbra.imladris.sk/download/zimbra-packages/HELIX-714/zcs-7.1.4_GA_2565.FreeBSD_amd64.tgz && \
        tar xzf zcs-7.1.4_GA_2565.FreeBSD_amd64.tgz && \
            rm -f zcs-7.1.4_GA_2565.FreeBSD_amd64.tgz && \
                cd zcs-7*
./install.sh
