Since December 2009 the Zarafa Collaboration Platform is available in the Ubuntu Partner repository.

For a Fedora installation how-to please visit the Fedora Wiki, keep in mind that we do support Fedora and are not able to help you if any issues occur.

First do a clean install of Ubuntu Server 10.04

Install mysql-server with aptitude.

# sudo aptitude install mysql-server

Added the ubuntu partners repository to the aptitude sources.list.

# sudo echo "deb lucid partner" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Run aptitude update to activate the newly added repository.

# sudo aptitude update

Install Zarafa with aptitude.

# sudo aptitude install zarafa zarafa-webaccess zarafa-libs zarafa-licensed

Note: zarafa-server will not start because it does not have the mysql password yet.

Specified the mysql root password in the /etc/zarafa/server.cfg configuration file.

# sudo vi /etc/zarafa/server.cfg

Install the Zarafa license.

# sudo echo "yourserial" > /etc/zarafa/license/base

Install the postfix mta.

# sudo aptitude install postfix

- Add to /etc/postfix/

mailbox_command = /usr/bin/zarafa-dagent "$USER"
mailbox_transport = zarafa: zarafa_destination_recipient_limit = 1

- Change mydestination to add your own maildomain in /etc/postfix/

mydestination = hostname.local,, localhost.hostname.local, localhost

- Add to /etc/postfix/

zarafa    unix  -       n       n       -       10       pipe
  flags=DRhu user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/zarafa-dagent -R ${recipient}

Create the vmail user on the system.

adduser --system --no-create-home vmail

Add the user vmail to the variable local_admin_users in /etc/zarafa/server.cfg.

Restart apache to commit the changes zarafa made for webaccess.

# sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Add your domain to the mydestination variable in /etc/postfix/

Restart postfix to commit the changes to postfix.

# sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart

Start the zarafa-server.

# sudo /etc/init.d/zarafa-server start

Make a Zarafa tester user and also create this user on the system so it can receive the email.

# sudo /usr/bin/zarafa-admin -c test -p password -e -f "Zarafa Test"

To create the user, use the adduser command and follow the wizard.

# adduser test

Login on webaccess and check if mail can be sent/received.
