    Default Upgrading Problem!

    Dear all,
    If I upgrade to new version of zimbra which it fails, can i downgrade it to old version by running "install.sh" command of old version release? It mean that when i upgrade to new version, zimbra will upgrade packages. When i run "install.sh" script of old version to restore, what does it affect?

    Thanks for regard.

    No, you can't 'downgrade' by doing that. You'd need to take a backup before the upgrade, if it fails (you may be able to recover) you'd need to restore you backup, reset the directory permissions the (possibly) reinstall the same version again. Have a search through the forums, this topic has been covered once or twice.

    Default Upgrade problem!

    Hi,

    Please show me how to restore backup (old version) when i upgraded to new version which it was failed.

    If i upgrade to new version which it fails, will i copy backup to /opt/zimbra and run "install.sh" of new version? It means that i upgrade again, doesn't you?.
    If it fails again, what must i do?

    Please help me. I'm baby to zimbra.

    Thanks.

    You backup the /opt/zimbra directory by using rsync, if you need to restore then copy it back then fix the permissions then run the install script again to make sure everything is OK. Please search the forums for some details, these subjects have been covered many times.
