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
