Today, my class will be discuss on how to install Zimbra Collaboration Suite. One of my student want to try it using different OS. As we don’t have access for Linux Suse Enterrprise Server 11 then we’ll try it on OpenSuse 13.1 . I never try it beside using Ubuntu but it won’t hurt right 🙂 . VPS is ready for such action.
I start by install OpenSUSE 13.1 server using VPS that support custom iso with these details :
- Location : Frankfurt
- Memory : 1GB (lowest memory available is 768 but I’ll try 1 GB)
- HD : 20 GB
- Technology : KVM
- Price : $7/mo
Lets get start!
OpenSUSE Iso Preparation
Login to vps provider and click “MY ISO”
Enter the address of iso file (OpenSUSE 13.1) from freedomvoice. You can choose other mirror from here.
OpenSuse 13.2 already released with many improvements.

List of uploaded iso file :
I also try DragonFlyBSD in this vps.
Choose Server Location (In this case I use Frankfurt, DE) then choose 64 bit operating system (Custom).
From Virtual ISO choose uploaded iso from drop down menu (openSUSE-113.11-DVD-x86_64.iso).
Click “Place Order” then you’ll see this under My Server tab.
Click “Manage” then Console.
For the rest of steps you can see this video :
Don’t forget remove iso file for next boot time or you’ll see installation screen again.
