Enter command hostname -f to view the current hostname:
$ hostname -f
On RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux, hostname is set in two files:
  • For RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux 6, hostname is defined in /etc/sysconfig/network:
For RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux 7, hostname is defined in /etc/hostname.
  • /etc/hosts: hostname <=> IP address mapping. Warning: List the FQDN hostname as first item.   mx.example.com mx localhost localhost.localdomain
Verify the FQDN hostname. If it wasn't changed, please reboot server to make it work.
$ hostname -f

Disable SELinux.

iRedMail doesn't work with SELinux, so please disable it by setting below value in its config file /etc/selinux/config. After server reboot, SELinux will be completely disabled.
If you prefer to let SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing, you can set below value instead:
Disable it immediately without rebooting your server.
# setenforce 0

Enable yum repositories for installing new packages

  • For CentOS or Scientific Linux, please enable CentOS/Scientific official yum repositories, and DISABLE all third-party yum repositories to avoid package conflict.
  • For Red Hat Enterprise Linux, please enable Red Hat Network to install packages, or create a local yum repository with DVD/CD ISO images.

There's no big difference between available backends, so it's strongly recommended to choose the one you're familiar with for easier management and maintenance after installation.
  • If you choose to store mail accounts in OpenLDAP, iRedMail installer will ask to set the LDAP suffix.

To MySQL/MariaDB/PostgreSQL users

  • Set password of admin account of your first mail domain.
Note: This account is an admin account and a mail user. That means you can login to webmail and admin panel (iRedAdmin) with this account, login username is full email address.

  • Choose optional components

After answered above questions, iRedMail installer will ask you to review and confirm to start installation. It will install and configure required packages automatically. Type y or Y and press Enter to start.
