Zimbra OSE Builds
Below are the Zimbra OSE (Open Source Edition) or FOSS Builds that my Zimbra Build Helper script built. You can find the script on my Github profile from the menu below or by clicking here to go directly to the project repository.
Instructions are provided in the repository README.md how to use the script, so I won't detail it all here. Please note that the script only builds for supported Linux distributions that Zimbra build their application for. It may be possible to install Zimbra on unsupported platforms utilising the override parameters, but I don't recommend it. I recommend to stick with the versions officially supported by Zimbra. Yes, there are occasions where I've patched to allow building for distributions - but this was purely because they were equivalent for RHEL. Attempting to build for unsupported distributions is extremely time-consuming.
These files cannot be downloaded with wget/curl. If you wish to download them onto your VPS, use a console browser like elinks/links/w3m, navigate the site in the console browser and download the files that way. Alternatively download to your machine, and then use SCP/SFTP to upload them to your VPS.
CentOS7 and RHEL7 will be provided up until the EOL date of June 2024. Anyone currently using EL7 releases should start thinking about migrating to EL8.
Due to CentOS7 and RHEL7 going EOL in June 2024, I don't plan to provide builds for Zimbra 10. Mainly because I expect that any EL7 usage will be extremely minor now. Anyone using EL7 should be thinking of moving to EL8 if they haven't already done it.
It's important to also download the MD5SUM file to check/verify that the Zimbra build file was downloaded successfully. This will ensure that when installing/upgrading Zimbra by using these packages, that you won't end up with a corrupted installation or upgrade. It can be checked using the following:
md5sum -c zcs-9.0.0_GA_0001.RHEL8_64.20221109093910.tgz.md5
I once had this issue when using Zimbra 6, although I was lucky enough to be able to recover my broken installation. So I highly recommend checking this to be 100% sure.
The Zimbra Build Script is provided as-is. I cannot be held responsible for any adverse affects it may cause. Every care and effort has been taken to ensure the script builds Zimbra as intended by Zimbra themselves. If you have any issues with the build script, please open an issue on the Zimbra Build script project repository from the link provided above, or by visiting my Github profile.
The Zimbra OSE builds are provided as-is. I cannot be held responsible for any adverse affects they may cause. You use them at your own risk! If you do not wish to utilise my builds, please feel free to use the script to build your own, or by following Zimbra's build instructions here. The build process relies on what Zimbra provides, so if the patches are not provided in Zimbra's build repositories, then these builds will also not have them. I cannot be held responsible for any vulnerabilities that may exist in Zimbra. If Zimbra provides patches to their build repository, then these builds should also include these patches.
Builds will normally be updated once per quarter.
