    Question How to Backup Zimbra Open Source Configuration?

    Hi guys,

    I'm following the guidelines from URL below to run the backup all accounts.
    Backing up and restoring Zimbra (Open Source Version) - Zimbra :: Wiki

    I would like to check, how can I backup Zimbra Open Source configuration as well?

    Appreciate if there is someone expert can give me advice.

    Thanks & Regards,
    wcpon

    That link is for a backup script for the Open Source version of Zimbra as are (almost?) all the scripts in the wiki and the forums that cover the subject of backup. Try them, see which one suits you and that you're able to restore then use it.

    Hello wcpon, this wiki entry has two parts.

    The first one is for disaster recovery purpose, simply intructs how to copy the whole /opt/zimbra folders.

    Regarding the configuration, its spread accross many other subfolders, MySql and LDAP, so there's no easy question.

    The second part it's about backup and restore users mailboxes, there's some issues using that approach because just preserves messages, pls correct me if i'm wrong.
