    Question how to roll back to old version

    Hi guys,
    when I compiled and made the source code for zimbra, I found an error about "wiki", so I suspected perhaps the new version source zimbra missed some files, I want to roll back old verison, how should I do?

    I would be interested in knowing this, too. AFAIK, you can't roll back. You need to backup /opt/zimbra before you upgrade it.

    This is how I backup:

    Code:
    rsync -avrlHKpogDt /opt/zimbra/ /opt/zimbra_synced
    - Chintan.

    P.S. I would not suggest this method for incremental backup because I am not sure that if you run the same command again, the symlinks would be maintained. This needs to be confirmed. The above command lets me preserve the permissions, and I run it after switching zimbra off.

    In case the upgrade is spoilt, you only need to do this:

    Code:
    mv /opt/zimbra /opt/zimbra_temp
    mv /opt/zimbra_synced /opt/zimbra
    and after checking that all is fine.

    Code:
    rm -rf /opt/zimbra_temp
