    Default Is 4.5.10 supported on FC7

    I am looking to ultimately upgrade to 5.0.x on FC7 but am unclear after searching the forums on what is the recommended path do so. I am currently running 4.5.10 on FC5. Was wondering if I can move 4.5.10 to FC7 now and then upgrade it to 5.0.x when support for that upgrade is made available? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Default My case

    As far as I tried on my testing environment with FOSS, the following steps worked.

    1. Install FC7 on testing server ( I installed from scratch) and use the same hostname as production server.
    2. Stop unnecessary services, update everything (yum -y update), and install libtool-ltdl (yum install libtool-ltdl.i386).
    3. Configure DNS as usual.
    4. Create link for (# cd /usr/lib; ln -s
    5. Comment out requiretty in /etc/sudoers.
    6. Install 4.5.10 FC5 on testing server.
    7. Stop 4.5.10 on testing server and delete /opt/zimbra directory.
    8. Transfer /opt/zimbra from production server to testing server.
    9. Run upgrade on testing server.
    10. During upgrade, stop mysql by zimbra user ($mysql.server stop) just after database integrity check (but not sure if it's really necessary...).

    Hoping it helps...

    Is this a supported configuration though?

    As far as I know, upgrading from FC5 to FC7 is not supported currently.

    4.5.10 works on FC7, I've setup my workplace on it

    Is it an officially supported platform? Probably not, 4.5 have binaries for FC5 only. 5.0 has binaries for FC7 now though, so I think 5.0 on FC7 is a supported platform.
