    Default [SOLVED] Moving zimbra 64bits to a more spacious server

    I have tried to move zimbra from one server to another doing the following:

    successfully move the directory to the remote location
    -scp -P [port] -r /opt/zimbra user@remoteservername:./zimbra destination

    -Install zimbra on the new server

    Remove the zimbra directory from the new server using the following command
    -rm -rf /opt/zimbra

    Sync the zimbra directory that was copied to the new server
    rsync -avr zimbra /opt

    reinstall zimbra as to upgrade it

    and had an error message...Below is the error message

    Error: assertion '-r /bin/mysqld_safe' failed

    Please tell me what is the best way to move my zimbra to a more spacious server.

    Thanks

    it's possible some of your permissions got messed up syncing to the new server i'd try to run

    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms

    see if that helps

    I have successfuly solve the problem using the following link for Open Source Edition:
    Moving ZCS to New Server - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Please after removing /opt/zimbra and replacing it with the backup, don't upgrade. There is no need for that.
    The only thing that you should do is run the following command as root:
    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms
    then su zimbra, and start zimbra
