    But IMHO it's well worth your time learning your way around the Linux shell. It's a useful skill.

    Wouldn't touch Webmin with a barge pole, had a customers box rooted because of it.

    Mind you, with effort I'm sure they'd have found another way.

    iirc there was a small celebration among the ubuntu developers when they no longer had to support webmin.

    One further question - are there any issues with Zimbra co-existing with other applications? I have a server in mind to act as a link between outside world and our MIS server, with Apache doing reverse proxy duty - would this cause problems for Zimbra or vice versa?

    The Zimbra documentation recommends it runs on its own dedicated server; but having said that I don't see why it won't be possible to run Zimbra webmail on different ports, and still have your Apache reverse proxy running as it is (as long as that is all you're running as well as Zimbra and the server has the resources to support it). Just make sure the server OS is supported by Zimbra and meets the minimum/recommended requirements.

    I need to do some more homework on this, so i'm kinda just thinking aloud here, not asking for answers... But if i'm reverse proxy-ing anyway, i guess i could keep the ports as default (ie 80 or 443 accordingly) but point the server to itself. Save our staff having to remember URLs with port numbers in. Or maybe, if possible, use Apache to redirect to itself on a different port.

    Sad, i know, but i can't wait to get started playing with this sort of thing. Just need the hardware to do it!

    If you have Apache listening on port 80, you can't have Zimbra listening on the same port. But yes, by all means, have Apache reverse-proxy for your email access to localhost:8080 and have Zimbra listening on 8080.

    Smile yes, webmin is better than a GUI on a server

    I second the recommendation of Webmin. I had to start from scratch with linux recently to set up Moodle and we're now settingup Zimbra. Webmin is fantastic because it shows you the options you might want without you having to know already that they exist (I did buy an Ubuntu server admininstration book too, but I'm like that). It's really helped me learn and get results while I'm learning.

    in what way?

    Geoff,

    In what way does webmin not work? I've been using it happily on my ubuntu server for backups, some package management, file management and mySQL database management. Am I in danger of trouble later?
