    Default upgrade

    How can I upgrade to the last version 5.0.8 GA?
    Do I have to upgrade the Linux distro version?
    Is there an howto for that?

    Many thanks

    Jose

    You are advised to upgrade to 4.5.11 first and then to 5.0.8. As long as the correct installation package is available for your OS you should be fine. Just remember to take a good backup prior to each upgrade!

    FC5 isn't available for the recent Zimbra builds, see these pages:

    Open Source Edition Downloads: Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Software by Zimbra
    Zimbra - Sunset Binaries Information

    Make sure you follow the instructions on the Sunset Binaries page and as uxbod has already said - make sure you have good backups and that each upgrade works before going on to the next.

    As I understand, the steps are like this:
    I'll do it in a new hardware server, to avoid down time
    1. install Fedora 7 in the new server
    2. Install 4.5.11 GA Release in the new server with Fedora 7
    3. Backup the fresh install: su - zimbra, zmcontrol stop, exit, mv /opt/zimbra /opt/zimbra.fresh_install, la -lah /opt
    4. Backup the production server (version 4.5.9 on FC5): su - zimbra, zmcontrol stop, exit, scp -rp /opt/zimbra root@newserver:/opt/
    5. In the new server: chown -Rf zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra, chmod -Rf 755 /opt/zimbra, su - zimbra, /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms
    6. Install (upgrade) Zimbra 5.0.8 GA Release on the new server with Fedora 7: cd /opt, download the last version for Fedora 7, tar -xvzf zcs-5.0.8_GA_XXXX.tgz, cd /opt/zcs5, ./install
    7. follow the instructions
    8. Set the permissions: su - zimbra, zmcontrol stop, exit, chown -Rf zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra, chmod -Rf 755 /opt/zimbra, /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms, su - zimbra, zmcontrol start, zmcontrol status
    9. Check if everything is ok

    Are these the right steps?
