Do I understand you cannot reach the administration page of your Zimbra installation ? If so, simply type in a web browser:

https://internal_server_ip:7071/zimbraAdmin (ex: https://192.168.1.101:7071/zimbraAdmin)

or

https://FQDN:7071/zimbraAdmin (ex: https://mx.domain.com:7071/zimbraAdmin)

Hope this helps.

Have you set the admin password at installation? And what is the error? Does not work does not give much information.

Are you sure the zimbra server is running? If not then log into the system with root or any other user then switch to zimbra user using su and then use zmcontrol stop/start to restart the services.
login using root

su - zimbra
zmcontrol stop
zmcontrol start


You can also view the status using zmcontrol status

And if you find certain services stopped, start them using zmcontrol start <service-name>

Did you removed all 'exim' packages prior to do your Zimbra installation ? Those 'exim' packages (for a small MTA) are causing a conflict with port 25 and the Zimbra MTA cannot start if they are present or running. I encountered this problem once wile building a VM for zimbra test purpose. To remove all 'exim' packages, open your Synaptic Packet Manager and search for 'exim' and uninstall w/e you can find (there is 4 packages installed if I remember correctly).

Hope this helps
