    Default Upgrade hangs @ starting mysql

    Upgrading from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6 and for some reason the upgrade just stops when it comes to starting mysql...

    I also noticed some errors when the install verifies the message store..

    Do you want to verify message store database integrity? [Y]
    Verifying integrity of message store databases. This may take a while.

    Please check your Log Files - Zimbra :: Wiki for any error messages. Also, in /tmp will be a zmsetup log so could you post that aswell please.

    OK

    I've restored from a backup.. problem is its a few days old so I'm sure there will be missing data.. I've copied the /opt/zimbra directory prior to restoring..

    I can't just copy /opt/zimbra over im sure, because its corrupted since the upgrade failed.

    Is there a way to just restore the message data and calendars?

    Can I just copy over the following directories -- /opt/zimbra/store, db, index, openldap-data ?

    Murphys law...

    the backup file will not restore! lovely.

    So now I'm left with a working fresh install of zimbra with no users, mail, calendars.. and a backup of the corrupt /opt/zimbra files.. can anything be salvaged?

    I'm doing this all in virtual environments, so I still have the corrupt version where it hangs @ the mysql install.

    I created a new "VM" and installed a fresh copy of Zimbra.

    On my old VMware server I think i still have a running copy of zimbra which was migrated to the new server ~7days ago.. so the files may be out of date, but the copy on that machine should still be operational...

    is it possible to just move the directories -- /opt/zimbra/store, db, index, openldap-data to the working VM?

    will that work or am i going to end up with more errors?

    Should it? Is that burst memory you're are mentioning as the 1-1.5GB? What are you using for virtualization?
