    Default What is recommended upgrade from 5.0.7

    Hi,

    I have a very old version of zimbra (5.0.7) community edition. I want to upgrade to the latest.

    Does anyone knows the correct path to take? I read there are issues when directly updating to the latest, and yet I cannot find the right instructions, or maybe I don't know the right words to search.

    Thanks.

    Really? Where did you read that?

    The instructions for upgrading Zimbra are always in the product Release Notes, go to the downloads page to get them and read them in detail before you upgrade. You should, of course, take a backup before you do any upgrade.

    BTW, I'll also move this to the correct forum as it's not a question about Migration.
    Regards

    Even if it is not written, I experienced problems with nginx configuration when upgrading from 6.0.12 to 7.1.2 (see: Zimbra Proxy Upgrade Error From 6.0.8 to 7.0 )

    The workaround for this was to first upgrade to 7.1.1, and then upgrade to 7.1.2.

    So if you can, try the update on a lab (you will test your restoration / disaster recovery by the way)

    Cheers.

    That would only be relevant in a multi-server install and I don't believe the o/p has that. I guess you also filed a bug report for the problem you encountered?

    Hi Bill,

    The post I mentionned was just an illustration of the fact that bugs can arise in upgrade scripts.

    The main idea is to TEST in a lab before trying on production server(s).

    Concerning my issue, I opened a Zimbra support case (we are running NE), and I'm sad to say this but as soon as I told them that i found the workaround, the guy there just closed the issue without anymore searches.

    Regards,
