    Default Upgrading Zimbra Open from 7.13 to 8.04

    Am looking for help with upgrading my Zimbra instillation. Do I need to complete upgrading to each individual release or can I jump straight to the latest? Also are there any simple instructions to do this? We're a small company and my Linux is lacking. The IT guy that did the install no longer works for us.

    Any input / assistance would be grateful

    Thanks ---Kenny

    This question has been answered many times in the forum you can usually go from any previous version to the current version but what you must do first is read the Release Notes to see if there are any caveats to that particular 'rule' (it will always tell you if you need to do any intermediate steps). I'd suggest you hold off upgrading until 8.0.5 is released (it will be soon).

    You're welcome. There should be no problem doing your upgrade but as I mentioned, check the release notes. You should also make sure that you take a backup before you do any upgrade, just in case. There are several scripts in the forums and in the wiki take a look at those and use whichever one suits you - don't forget to try a restore sometime in case you need to do it in the future.
    Regards
