    Default Upgrade guide?

    We're currently running 4.0.3 on RedHat 4 64-bit and are planning on upgrading to 4.5.5 tonight. I've looked for an upgrade guide, but found nothing. Does anyone know of any upgrade guides anywhere? Thanks!

    You need to backup your Zimbra server then run the ./install.sh script - it updates Zimbra automatically.

    No need to stop the server, etc..the install script does it?

    stop your server-run a backup-upgrade-start server
    backing up is ALWAYS suggested!

    I seem to recall it saying it was looking for running processes so it may stop them. Still as already mentioned, best practice would be to stop the services, back everything up, if it's already down from the backup you may as well do your upgrade then technically if you did have to recover it would be from exactly the last point the services were running.

    regards,

    It does shut the processes down if they are running but, as has been said, best practice is always to stop the Zimbra services and run a backup of the /opt/zimbra directories. The upgrade will automatically restart the services.

    Just fyi, you can't run zmcontrol stop because zmbackup requires LDAP to be running.

    That's correct only for Network edition.

    If you're open source, then just rsync or cp the dir.

    That's true but unless you say otherwise I assume it's an OSS install.
