Description

This is a guide on setting up Zimbra 8.7 from source on FreeBSD 10.

WARNING: As of writing this guide ZCS 8.7 is still in beta and I will be pulling the latest code from Zimbra straight from the tap. Your mileage may vary.

Prepare the Environment

  • Make sure the system is up to date and refresh the ports tree:
    pkg update && pkg upgrade
    portsnap fetch extract
    
  • Install a few dependencies:
    pkg install git screen bash
    
  • Create a zimbra group:
    pw add group zimbra
    
  • Create a zimbra user:
    pw add user -n zimbra -m -s /usr/local/bin/bash -c "Zimbra" 
    

Build the Zimbra from source:

  • Since downloading the source code takes a long time depending on the internet connection used, using screen or tmux will help:
    screen
    
  • Download the current release of Zimbra:
    mkdir ~/git
    cd ~/git
    git clone -b judaspriest-foss https://git.zimbra.com/repos/zimbra-foss/.git
    
    • NOTE: This took around 14GB of storage, so be forewarned.
    • NOTE: Use CTRL+D and then D to detach the screen session.
