    Unhappy Zimbra upgrade procedure

    Hi, there:

    Where can I find a general procedure for upgrade a standalone zimbra server?

    The new version installation script detects a previus version and automatically apply patches or program substitution?

    Is posible to install a new version server and restore a backup of the previus one?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi, the release notes of each edition gives a pretty straight forward explanation on how to upgrade. Knowing what version you are on right now would be helpful .

    Welcome to the forums

    As mtorres has said if you would be so kind as to update your profile with the output of the following that would be great
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
    In essence though the upgrade steps are pretty straight forward :-

    1) Shutdown ZCS
    2) Take a backup
    3) Repeat step 2
    4) Download the correct version of ZCS and untar
    5) As root run
    6) Once 5 has completed check all is functioning okay
    7) Perform step 1,2 and 3 again
