Hello all,

The other day I tried to install Kerio Connect on a brand new server, which I had set up with CentOS 6.4 64 bits base install.
The rpm -i <<kerio install file>> as stated in the documentation, failed because of loads of dependency errors.
Most of them were solved after doing a new CentOS installation including all kinds of developer packages. But not all.

Fixing these kinds of problems is like finding a needle in a haystack.
Luckely I stumbled apon the "yum localinstall <<kerio install file>>" option and that did the trick.
So if you get stuck installing, this might save your day.

Nico

Hello,

Thanks for the update.
I had turned off postfix in chkconfig but it's a good idea to remove it.
As for the other command: sudo yum install glibc.i686 libglibc.i686 libuuid.i686 zlib.i686 libstdc++.i686:
yum localinstall resolves the missing dependencies for you.

Hello Pavel,

Today I did an installation on CentOS 6.3 64-bits as described in this article:
http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/software-appliance -linux/installation-on-centos-60-64-bit-x86_64-747.html
I got stuck.

I think the article may be outdated and should be modified.

These are my steps for a successfull installation:

1 # yum remove postfix
2 # wget <<URL to Kerio downloadfile>>
3 # yum localinstall <<path to downloaded Kerio rpm>>
4 # /opt/kerio/mailserver/cfgwizard
5 # /etc/init.d/kerio-connect start

Thank you!!!

After several hours (lost) this was the only method that really worked for me.
