    Default Upgrading Zimbra to latest version.

    I am new to Zimbra, I have a client that have a Zimbra 6.06, we want to upgrading to the latest Zimbra server version, I believe is version 8.0.

    Do you think it 's a good idea to upgrade directly from verstion 6.0 to version 8.0, or I need to upgrade in stages?

    Would it be a better idea to install a fresh version of Zimbra 8 and import the settings and messages from version 8?

    is there a good wiki or how-to for upgrading from version 6 to the latest version of Zimbra?

    Please help,

    Thank you,

    AbdellahT

    No, the current version is actually ZCS 8.0.4.

    It's not necessary to upgrade in 'stage', howver, you should read the current Release Notes in detail and see which version (and a 'how to') can be upgraded to newer versions - these details are always in the release notes. You should also take a backup of the current version before you upgrade. One point to note is that the current ZCS 8.x versions are only for 64bit hardware and if you're not on that you may want to consder what your upgrade path and options are. Search the forums and wiki for details and when you've read all the documentation etc. post agin if you have any questions.
