One of the most common problems with installing and starting a service is an incorrect LDAP or MySQL password.


Resetting the LDAP Password

First, we need to make sure that Zimbra is stopped.

Try running:

> su zimbra
> zmcontrol stop

Just to be safe, you can make sure that all Zimbra services are stopped:

> ps auxww | grep zimbra
> ps auxww | grep slapd


Kill any left over processes.

Now, we can reset the passwords:

First the root(note: these are run as user zimbra)

> zmldappasswd --root newpass

Next the zimbra:

> zmldappasswd newpass

Make sure you use the same password for both!


Note: For Zimbra 5.0 and newer, you must start Zimbra with:

> zmcontrol start

And then use the following to change the root user

> zmldappasswd -r newpass

Next the zimbra:

> zmldappasswd newpass

Resetting Mailbox Database Passwords

Make sure mailbox database is running. Run all commands as user zimbra.

This checks for a pid file:

 > mysql.server status
 mysql is running with pid 23830

Also use:

 > ps a | grep mysqld.*my.cnf
 

root account Set newpassword to your desired password.

 > zmmypasswd --root newpassword

zimbra account

 > zmmypasswd newpasswd

Resetting Logger Database Passwords

Make sure mailbox database is running. Run all commands as user zimbra.

 > ps a | grep mysqld.*my.logger.cnf

root account

Set newpassword to your desired password.

 > zmmylogpasswd --root newpassword

zimbra account

 > zmmylogpasswd newpasswd
