The preferred way to install Zentyal on a new machine from scratch is using our tailored CD installer. This CD contains Zentyal and all its dependencies. The 3.2 version is based on Ubuntu Server 12.04.3 and is available for 32 and 64 bit architectures at:
Note: If you want to define the partition layout manually or you need to specify a proxy to get Internet access, make sure you install using the "expert mode".
Once the installation process is done, you can access the web interface using a web browser (usually from another machine in the same network):
To log in, a user name and password is asked, this data is asked during the first stage of the installation. But any other user belonging to the "admin" group could be used to log in as well.
Note: The installers are generated from time to time, so maybe some packages contained on them are outdated. If you have Internet connection during the installation, the latest version of the packages will be installed from our repositories.
Zentyal 3.2 packages
You can also install Zentyal as a "package" to an already installed version of Ubuntu. This was developed and tested with Ubuntu version 12.04 and hasn't been tested with other versions of Ubuntu, so YMMV.
For Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise). You should install the server edition of Ubuntu.
Add to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/zentyal/3.2/ubuntu precise main deb http://archive.zentyal.org/zentyal 3.2 main extra
In order to authenticate the packages in the PPA and Zentyal repository you can import its public key with the following command:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 10E239FF wget -q http://keys.zentyal.org/zentyal-3.2-archive.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
You may also copy & paste this single command line in order to add the repository along with the key
sudo apt-get install -y python-software-properties && sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zentyal/3.2 && sudo apt-get update
(but you still will have to add the Zarafa repository by hand if you need it).
Read the 3.2 Announcement for more info.
Zentyal has a modular design that allows you to install or remove modules depending on your needs. The number of Zentyal modules is greater than 30. In order to ease the process of installation you can install one or more Zentyal profiles. A profile contains a set of packages that are commonly used in a task. This is a the list of the current profiles:
- zentyal-office: zentyal-samba, zentyal-printers, zentyal-antivirus, zentyal-ebackup, zentyal-remoteservices
- zentyal-communication: zentyal-mail, zentyal-jabber, zentyal-mailfilter, zentyal-antivirus, zentyal-ebackup, zentyal-remoteservices
- zentyal-gateway: zentyal-squid, zentyal-trafficshaping, zentyal-l7-protocols, zentyal-ebackup, zentyal-remoteservices
- zentyal-infrastructure: zentyal-dhcp, zentyal-dns, zentyal-openvpn, zentyal-webserver, zentyal-ftp, zentyal-ntp, zentyal-ebackup, zentyal-remoteservices
After editing your sources.list, make sure that your package database is up to date by running the following command:
sudo apt-get update
After that, you just need to run:
sudo apt-get install zentyal
And then point your browser to the Zentyal IP address and follow the instructions on screen:
If you want to install the full graphical environment you can install zenbuntu-desktop instead of just zentyal:
sudo apt-get install zenbuntu-desktop
After installing zenbuntu-desktop your Ubuntu will be in almost the same state as if you were used the the official Zentyal Installer, you just need to reboot your server (simulating the finish of the first stage of the installation) and on the next boot the Zentyal core packages will be installed and you will be able to continue the installation from the desktop environment.
You can also use the command line to install the packages.
sudo apt-get install zentyal-office
You can also install all the Zentyal packages:
sudo apt-get install zentyal-all
In case you need just a few modules you can also install any of the following list by running apt-get install zentyal-<modulename>:
