Zentyal (formerly eBox Platform) is an Linux server for small and medium enterprises (SMBs), considered an alternative toWindows Server and other Microsoft's infrastructure products for SMBs.

Zentyal is based on Ubuntu and it can be installed either from Ubuntu repositories or from Zentyal's own installer.
Zentyal is owned and sponsored by a single for-profit firm, the Spanish company eBox Technologies S.L., which holds the copyright to the codebase,[2] and offers services embedded with commercial editions of the software. Such services include technical support, software and security updates, disaster recovery or access to remote monitoring and management platform. The project's source code is available under terms of the GNU General Public License.
Zentyal development was first published in 2005 as an open-source, collaborative project of two companies.[3] On 16 November 2006 Zentyal was officially approved as a NEOTEC project, receiving public funds from the CDTI (a Spanish public organisation, under the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism) to complete the development of version 1.0.[4] Zentyal was first included in Ubuntu in 2007 under the name of eBox Platform, in the Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 3, the third alpha release of Ubuntu 7.10.[5] The first stable release candidate of Zentyal (eBox Platform 1.0) was published in 2008.[6]

Installation Guide
Zentyal InstallerThe 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 3.0 version is based on Ubuntu Server 12.04 and is available for 32 and 64 bit architectures.
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Note: The installers are generated from time to time, so maybe some packages contained on them are outdated.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 3.0 packagesFor Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise). You should install the server edition.
