Installing z-push for Zimbra 8 on CentOS 6

These instructions let you know the steps to install an ActiveSync link for mobile phones to Zimbra OSE Version 8. For this, we use z-push 2 and the z-push Zimbra backend. Versions used here are 2.0.7 and 56.1. Check for newer files if required. These instructions do not (yet?) go into the details of configuring the link. Please read the included instructions for this.

yum -y install php-process # installing prerequisites

# Install z-push

cd /tmp
tar -xf z-push-2.*.tar.gz
rm -f z-push-2.*.tar.gz
mv z-push-2.0.* /usr/share/z-push
mkdir /var/lib/z-push
mkdir /var/log/z-push

#Configure your Apache server: Alias /Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync /usr/share/z-push/index.php

# Install z-push for Zimbra backend

tar -xf zimbra*.tgz
rm -f zimbra*.tgz
mkdir /usr/share/z-push/backend/zimbra
cd zimbra56.1
cp z-push-2/* /usr/share/z-push/backend/zimbra

#Edit /usr/share/z-push/config.php to suit your needs

There you go, allĀ  installed.
