    You need to backup the /opt/zimbra directory structure, I'd suggest you start by reading this article and also have a look at some of the other threads on the forums about moving to a new server.

    thanks for your reply, from the article u provide me, it mention that we have to use the same version of zimbra i both server. Can i upgrade the zimbra from v5 to v6 after the migration? or got any alternative way that allow us to do migration from v5 to v6?

    Yes, after the migration to the new server you can upgrade to version 6. This is the easiest way to do it.

    thanks for your reply ringnebula, here i got few more question:

    1, is there any impact if i upgrade from v5 to v6?
    2, is recommended to do upgrade from v5 to v6 after migration or prefer to copy the /opt/zimbra from v5 to v6 dump zimbra server?

    1. The upgrade shouldn't cause you any problems. Zimbra has done a good job of making the upgrade process largely seamless.

    2. You don't want to do anything with 6 until you have followed steps in the article phoenix linked. That is, copy /opt/zimbra to new server, install same (v5) release on new server, verify it works as expected, upgrade to v6.

    I have followed the process above on a few machines and never run into a problem.

    You should also make sure that you take a backup before doing the upgrade.
